20 Awesome Vegan Things To Do in Los Angeles This September

In LA, does the shift of seasons actually signify a change in weather patterns? Definitely not, but we’ll continue to use fall as an excuse to justify our purchases of pumpkin spice lattes, hot chocolate, and cinnamon rolls! Now that we’ve justified our sweets addiction, here’s this month’s stacked itinerary.

Vegan Labor Day Brunch

Sunday, September 1

Vegan brunch hosted by Green Saturday with savory Cuban food by Lobo Cuban Food and sweets from Mi Kasa Vegana.
