About Catherine Giudici

A proud Coug, she graduated from WSU with a B.A. in Advertising going on to the likes of Wexley School for Girls, Seattle Weekly and Taco Del Mar “Corporate”. After eating copious amounts of exotic—and not so exotic—meat on a trip to Kenya, Catherine returned to the States craving anything and everything without a face. The vegan affair began and after four years, she’s a self-proclaimed “opportunistic vegan”, cheating on her lover for very special occasions. Catherine reps 206 on the daily and has been for 20 years. Like a true Seattleite, she owns Birkenstocks, rides the Metro and loves the smell of rain.

Meatless Mondays: Bimbos Cantina
Capitol Hill has style. Don’t fight the luchador inside you. Enjoy Bimbos. Unlike their name, they don’t make it easy for you. An eclectic mix of drinks, dishes and décor gives you a little bit of a seizure. In a good way. You aren’t ever bored and even just being in there makes you feel (more…)

Expect simple and bold flavors from this Vietnamese-inspired culination. Monsoon, a quaint and elegant spot in Capitol Hill, exemplifies consideration, delicacy and passion in its elite Vietnamese dishes. No one or thing’s nose is raised here, but believe me, this spot is superior. (more…)
Meatless Mondays: Field Roast at Safeco Field
Thanks to Field Roast, vegans can fully enjoy the whole American baseball tradition with a frank in hand. Seattle’s front-runner in vegan faux meats makes a stand at Safeco Field. A little stand, at Section 133. It’s got traditional(-esque) frankfurters, original flavor combinations and a whole lotta zing. Now, there’s one more reason to head to the ballpark and root for Seattle. (more…)
