The parrot’s tamales

In Spanish, “el papagayo” means “the parrot,” but in Carmichael, El Papagayo Restaurant means a colorful Mexican-food eatery that has a vegetarian menu. And on Saturday, December 8, it is where a vegan-tamale workshop will take place from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Tickets, available at http://vegantamaleworkshop.eventbri
, are $22.50 and are limited, so prioritize if being a vegan-tamale-making hotshot is one of your life objectives. However, if sampling vegetarian ceviche ranks higher on your list, cruise down to 5804 Marconi Avenue Wednesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and put in your order. Check out the menu at for more flesh-free options.
