Food truck features locals in 2016 Michigan's grooviest vegetarians calender


Shimmy Shack is at it again. The locally-owned vegetarian and gluten free food truck recently auditioned locals for their 2016 Grooviest Vegetarians Calendar and put the whole thing together pin-up style. 

Last year we featured Michigan's 12 sexiest vegetarians as selected by Shimmy Shack, but this year they're keeping their choices under wraps. Guess you'll just have to buy the calendar. 

According to the mint green food truck's majority owner Debra Levantrosser, she and her cohorts held open tryouts and asked locals to come explain why they chose a vegan lifestyle and why it was important to them to be featured in the calendar. The list of calendar girls (and boys) includes Levantrosser herself, plus Jennifer Flamont, Kaitlyn Southern, Samantha Stover, Amanda and Chris Gregory, Catie and Andrew Miglietti, Jim Ward, Sierra Maurer, and more. 

The calendar retails for $15.99 is available at and will be for sale at DIYPsi on Dec. 12 and 13.
