Vegan Pirates? Sure, why not :)

Yoho’s. A Pirate-themed Vegan Seafood Cart in Austin Texas…

I’ll be honest. When I first stumbled across this I wasn’t quite sure what to think. First of all, I am biased as an omnivore and red meat lover. Second, it just didn’t seem very piratical. I couldn’t imagine a crew of rum swilling, sword brandishing cutthroats being vegans.

The more I thought about it, though, the more sense it made. The essence of being a pirate is charting your own course, being your own person, sailing to the beat of a different drummer (and of course, rum).

I think Yoho’s may be on to something and I am wishing them fair weather and smooth sailing. If you want to find out more about Yoho’s, check out these links.
