Traffic Jam: The Week Ending February 24

This week, the VN editors give you the best of the internet—four links (and one tweet!) at a time.

1. Over the weekend, an op-ed from the president of the Missouri Farm Bureau was featured in The New York Times. And he has an interesting view on why gestation crates are necessary. This is a must-read.

2. Happy Margarita Day! (OK, it was actually Wednesday, but shouldn’t every day be Margarita Day?) Celebrate all-year-‘round with Sticky Fingers Bakery’s Strawberry Margarita Cake. Or regular margaritas. Or both. (We suggest both.)

3. Beautiful vegan shoes for spring! And more of them!

4. Won’t somebody please make us this Smoky Maple Seitan Sandwich? Think of the children!

5. And for our Tweet of the Week, we can’t help but brag right along with one of our favorite magazines (and fellow San Franciscans!), 7x7: “winter? #sanfrancisco instagr.am/p/HWxrLjk9SP/”—@7x7Magazine
