    a seagull with one leg on alcatraz!

    this post is like a joke with a crappy punch line. there’s no food at all (vegan or otherwise) on alcatraz island, and the stuff that’s available on the ferry is nothing to write home about. that being said, i’m sure some that someday a starving tourist who has skipped a meal will wind up in the long ass line to get a boat to the island, and search for vegan alcatraz options on their smart phone. it’s that person who this post is written for…because that’s EXACTLY what i went through a couple of months ago.

    i booked my alcatraz tickets way in advance (you have to—tours fill up quickly), i mapped out the appropriate public transport, and i allowed for enough time to eat breakfast at a nearby vegan-friendly restaurant. however, the bus was late and my plans were foiled. i boarded the alcatraz ferry hungry as fuck and was beyond relieved to see an old vegan standby staring me in the face.

    when in doubt, super pretzel plain pretzels are vegan.

    i can’t even count how many times my life has been saved by this fact. 2 pretzels, 2 coffees and 5 mustard packets later, team quarrygirl was energized and totally ready to wander around disused prison cells.

    i hope this information comes in handy.
