From Whale Meat to Vegan

Remember The Hump, the Santa Monica sushi restaurant that closed down last month after getting caught serving whale meat? And remember the Ady Gil, the Sea Shepherd boat rammed and sunk by a Japanese whaling ship this past January?

Well now the flesh and blood Ady Gil, the philanthropist who paid for the Sea Shepherd’s doomed boat, wants to start a vegan restaurant in the space formerly occupied by The Hump. A very cool turn of events: from whale meat to vegan in one year. (Via Hawthorne.) Link.
