Hynde Getting Vegan in Akron?

Posted By on Fri, Jan 5, 2007 at 1:34 PM

Chrissie Hynde hopes to provide nourishment for the two vegans in Akron
Word on the Akron streets is that hometown hero Chrissie Hynde is currently hunting for a commercial space to open a vegan restaurant, possibly in the Highland Square area. (This has been confirmed by my friend's mom — who knows everything about Akron.) A longtime vegetarian and member of PETA, Hynde has also been rumored to enlist the help of a PETA consultant to ensure that her restaurant is 100 percent animal cruelty free — a gesture that will surely soothe the souls of the two vegans living in Akron. However, when C-Notes called PETA to confirm the rumor, spokeswoman Erin Edwards said she couldn't comment on PETA's involvement at the moment. "All I can say is that the restaurant will be completely vegan," said Edwards. In 1989, Hynde was asked by a reporter what she'd done to help advance the cause of animal rights. Hynde joked that she'd blown up a McDonald's. Shortly thereafter, a dedicated fan firebombed the fast food joint in the songstress's honor. At least those vegans are good for something. — Denise Grollmus
