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: Highline
With live music, a card-only photo booth, vegan fare, and games galore, this Capitol Hill joint channels the great Maximus and screams “Are you not entertained?!” Normally, when a vegan walks into a bar they barely have any options to nosh on. Y’all know this is no joke. At Highline on Broadway, vegans will have a hard time choosing just one thing from their eclectic menu. That’s why I got 5. (more…)
