Restaurant Partner: Piggy Bank

Piggy Bank is a casual restaurant in Uptown Minneapolis that includes our products on a separate plant based menu. Order at the counter, then grab a table or spot at the bar. They have nachos, salads, flatbreads, and more.

The vegan chicken fritters include our seitan chicken and ranch.

The nachos are topped with our cheese and chorizo. 

The fried buffalo cauliflower is topped with our almond-based herbed feta. 

They even have a banana split for a vegan dessert option!

Piggy Bank comes from the same restaurant family as Crave, who we recently partners with. There's a full bar and a small parking lot on the south side. We're excited about this new addition to our list of restaurant partners!

Update 3: Vegan Butchers in Space

In our last update 8 days ago, the zinnias had just sprouted. We're happy to share that the carrots have sprouted, too! The plants in all four pots appear to be thriving and require watering every 2 to 3 days. (Zinnias are the blue pot, carrots are the brown pot.)

Our astronaut friend Josh is busy writing grants to help us fund the simulated mission at the Mars Desert Research Station next summer. We've also been contacted by another astronaut on the mission, Lewis Smithingham, and hope to figure out a fun collaboration with him. He's the mission's Journalist and Virtual Reality Director - we're not 100% sure what that entails, but we're certain it's a pretty cool gig.

We also purchased some wheat and hope to plant some seeds very soon. Stay tuned!

Update 2: Vegan Butchers In Space

The zinnias are sprouting! We planted zinnias and carrots on May 5, and when we came in on May 9, we found these little zinnia sprouts.

So far, we've watered them a little every other day because the Mars Regolith Simulant seems to dry out quickly. Both carrots and zinnias like full sun, so we have them in the window at the front of the shop which faces southeast. It gets pretty warm there when the sun is out, so that probably contributes to the MRS drying out.

Hopefully the carrots will sprout soon, too!
