Macca Honors City’s Delicious, Notorious and Plentiful Vegan Fare

Portland  – Presenting a bouquet of roses carved from vegetables, Paul McCartney and PETA US Vice President Dan Mathews congratulated Mayor Charlie Hales on Portland’s winning the award for 2016’s Most Vegan-Friendly City in the US. The mayor accepted the award at McCartney’s sold-out concert Friday night at the Moda Center. A photo is available here.

“The City of Roses is the city of the future”, said McCartney of Portland’s creative vegan scene.

“Portland’s vegan hot spots aren’t just restaurants but a summer camp, a punk-metal bar, a strip mall, and even a strip club“, added Mathews.

“Here in Portland, we love our environment, wildlife, and pets, and our local economy reflects that—from sustainable operations, to reuse of materials, to vegan fare”, said Mayor Hales.

Edinburgh currently holds the title as the Most Vegan-Friendly City in the UK, as decided by PETA.
