Go VeganANDY WARHOL’S confidante and one-time associate publisher of his magazine, Interview, Paige Powell is a pop culture savant, international arts adviser, and tireless animal rights activist. She’s also an 18-year connoisseur of all things vegan, meaning no dairy, no honey, and no shopping for cool leather boots. But Powell says it’s not a sacrifice, just “healthy, humane and the best way to leave a small paw print on the planet.” Despite our carnicentric reputation, Portland is still a vegan stronghold, too, and Powell now sees a growing cluster of caterers, cafés, food carts, and even a vegan strip club (Casa Diablo) championing the lifestyle.
