Enemy of the Steak

Block 16 is hosting a vegan burger pop-up on Tuesday, June 1st from 5pm to 8pm. The restaurant will close at 3pm to thorough clean all surfaces before reopening at 5 fully vegan. Enemy of the Steak is a one night only event, and will feature creative and decadent burgers and loaded curly Q fries, all prepared 100% animal-free. Except, obviously, the blood sweat and tears of the chef, which remains the only animal byproduct allowed in vegan living. No tickets or reservations are required, but with more than 300 responses to the event already, plan to show up early if you want to catch a bite. Learn more at Enemy of the Steak PopUp
