Sir Paul Mccartney - Sir Paul Mccartney To Award Austin Mayor With Vegan City Honour

Sir Paul Mccartney has declared Austin, Texas is America's most vegan-friendly city following a nationwide study by his friends at Peta.

The rocker will present city officials with Peta's Most Vegan-Friendly City in the U.S. award in between concerts at the Frank Erwin Center on Wednesday (22May13) and Thursday (23May13).

The former Beatle will join Peta senior vice president Dan Mathews for the ceremony on Thursday after alerting city Mayor Lee Leffingwell to his plans in a letter.

MCCartney wrote, "The influx of forward-thinking musicians and techies, the thriving university, and the food trucks all over the city run by young veg-friendly hipsters have made Austin the absolute cutting-edge place for green eating."

Austin beat out Portland, Oregon; Los Angeles; New York, and Chicago to land the meat-free award, which MCCartney will present to Leffingwell backstage at the Frank Erwin Center.

The mayor accepting the award on behalf of the citizens of Austin is appropriate. However, lest anyone think anything else, the mayor is a phony who serves Austin based on what's in it for him now and in the future -- monetarily. The only Austin citizens he cares about are those in the upper middle income bracket and above.
