Plymouth-based vegan restaurant Shimmy Shack — which also operates what it bills as metro Detroit's only 100-percent vegan and gluten-free food truck — will host metro Detroit's first "vegan prom."
"This is the first of its kind in Michigan!” says Debra Levantrosser, Shimmy Shack's owner. “While there have been vegan dances in Michigan, this is the first totally vegan and gluten-free prom. We're doing this mostly because we know it can be challenging to attend social events if you have an underrepresented diet, but also because we just like to bring people together to whip it up."
