Super vegan Super Bowl party

Who is even in the Super Bowl this year? Oh yeah, the Carmichael El Papagayos, of course. The Mexican restaurant El Papagayo is the best team in the big game this year because it’s hosting another vegan Super Bowl party, featuring a special “taco cart.” Vegan tacos on wheels? Yes, please. It kicks off at 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. on Sunday, February 5, at 5804 Marconi Avenue in Carmichael; snag tickets for a few thousand dollars less than actual Super Bowl tickets at Eventbrite ($20). But if anyone thinks football and vegans don’t go together, just look at Griff Whalen, a wide receiver who recently got signed to the New England Patriots who proudly proclaims he is plant-powered, and according to football-y sources, the Patriots are 50 percent of the teams playing in the Super Bowl. Well, isn’t that a special little coincidence.
