The Labyrinth's Vegan Take-Out & Conspiracy Theorist for Halloween

Work has ALMOST been FUN, again!  YAY!  I know this post is VERY late!  This is the FIRST time I have 'dressed up' for Halloween in YEARS!  A few co-workers and I were talking about simple yet funny things to do for Halloween!  I decided to make this tin foil hat and go as a Conspiracy Theorist.  I thought it was pretty original. LOL.

I had some neat feedback on Instagram.  One guy said I should have had all sorts of newspaper clippings in my pockets and stuff to go along with it.  Making this Foil Hat was a bitter harder than it looks.  I did wear it nearly all day, tho!  A fellow Co-Worker went as "Mother Nature" and wore a wine like halo.

It's so nice having a happier work atmosphere around here!  I'm VERY thankful for that!  Another thing I was thankful for recently was my trip to The Labyrinth in Jamestown.  I've posted about this Vegetarian/Vegan Restaurant before but it's been while since I have stopped by.  I pre-ordered 2 Sunday's ago and picked up my order for BOTH Brunch and Dinner.

Yes, you could say I treated myself!  It traveled pretty well considering what I ordered!  For Breakfast/Brunch I had this little gem!  I know, I know...WHAT?  No Pictures!?  So sorry!  I started eating it before I snapped a pic.  It was really wonderful, tho!  The Lemon wasn't over the top tarty or puckery and the Raspberry was AWESOME!  The Vegan Butter was on the side and I dipped my finger in it but didn't feel it 'needed it' so I didn't add it to the Waffle.  Same with the Vegan Creamed Cheese.  The Maple Syrup was local and super sweet.  I usually don't care for Maple Syrup on my Waffles but it was tasty.  Next time I might ask for it on the side so I exclusively taste the Lemon and Raspberry on top of it!

Later than Night I grabbed the 2nd course...Veggie Burger!  This place has some great 'burgers'.  This one was a goodie but there are some others I enjoy a bit better like their Tofu Rodeo Burger, for example. 

BUT...this was pretty good, regardless!  I opted for the Vegan Cheddar.  The Pickle was puckery but in a good way!  The Hot Sauce was a nice touch, too!  Their Home Fries are similar to Breakfast Potatoes.  I really wish we had more veggie places in my region but I sure am thankful for this one!

  1. I chuckled at your tin foil hat that was a great idea. How does the restaurant prepare their veggie burgers. What are some of the ingredients? I'm imagine, they are made fresh, correct? I don't think there are too many veggie restaurants in my area. I'd normally have to trek a bit to get to them, but that's fine. I much prefer cooking my own meals.

    1. I thought you might get a kick out of that pic :)

      In this specific burger I'm not completely sure of each ingredient they used but they are a Vegetarian and Vegan Restaurant. They don't serve any meat/poultry/fish. It's the only one like it in my area. They use local ingredients and organic ingredients when available. They are made fresh, yes! The owner/cook has some really near flavors and sauces he has done on stuff before, too! I remember a Guava BBQ Sauce and it was really neat! I think that was what he used on the Rodeo Tofu Burger.

  4. Ha - cute costume!
    OMG, I'm super jealous of your waffles. I rarely come across a place that has vegan & gluten-free breakfasty things (aside from the token tofu scramble...). Sounds pretty awesome!

      Re: The Waffles...they were really tasty! I especially liked the fruit flavors - very tangy and fresh! I wish I could visit them every day but it's not often I get over that way!
