Join us THIS Thursday, August 29, from 7:00pm to 10:00pm for Vegan Drinks NYC! Find us at Fontana’s Bar, located at 105 Eldridge Street on the Lower East Side. Show up hungry because Chef Oscar Vegan Revolution will serve up what is rumored to be the best vegan tuna melt and mac ‘n cheese in town, among other delicious fare!
This month, we’ll be benefiting Evolve for Animals, “a grassroots nonprofit organization that unabashedly advocates for the total and unfettered rights of non-human animals through education-based outreach events such as tabling, leafleting, public speaking engagements, film screenings, and vegan soup kitchens. While other organizations may focus on the treatment of animals, EFA presents the case for animal rights from the perspective of use and commodification where any and all impositions on sentient life is defined as violence, and veganism is the proposed solution.”
Stuff your dollars in the donation jar, and buy raffle tickets from Evolve for Animals to win one of these great prizes:
- Copy of Sistah Vegan

We’ll turn down the music around 8:30pm and encourage people to promote themselves, their groups and/or causes for 30 seconds. If you represent a veg*n or animal rights group, come prepared with your (very short!) spiel and literature.
