In June, Pingala Café will launch Vedge Out, a weekly outdoor vegan food and music event in the parking lot of its home in Burlington's Chace Mill on the edge of the Winooski River.

The Thursday evening series will start June 17. Pingala's popular Broccoli Bar will serve as the anchor and possibly add a rotating guest list of other Vermont food trucks later in the summer.*

Vedge Out will also provide entertainment: DJ performances projected on a screen. Pingala will serve craft beer and cider.

The goal is to spread awareness and appreciation of vegan food and offer a fun summer gathering. "You're vegging out. You're chilling out," Pingala co-owner Lisa Bergström said.

*Updated May 26 with launch date and timing for adding other food vendors.
