NYC’s fourth annual Veggie Prom returns for another night of snazzy outfits, dancing, munchies and of course prom court. This year the event is being held at Fontana’s and starts at 8pm. Tickets are $15 in advance, or $20 at the door. DJ Lil Ray will provide jams for the evening and all proceeds from the event will go to HEART, an organization that provides humane education training to teachers.
But why would you want to relive prom, you ask? Well, because you’re an adult, first of all. One who probably has a fancy outfit in their closet that they never get to wear. And, if you can’t dance you can always sit in the corner and eat tons of the free food that will be available, including candy from Go Max Go Foods (yes, you read that correctly), cookies from Vegan O’Brien Baking Co., nut cheese from Treeline Cheese, treats from Gone Pie, cupcakes from Terri, and presumably a whole lot more. Bring your insulin.
Nominations for prom court are open until May 24. If you know an awesome vegan (or non-vegan, but clearly vegans are the most awesome) who deserves to win, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the person’s full name in the subject line and a few sentences in the body of the e-mail about why that person should win. Winners get a whole lot of goodies, including a gift certificate to Terri, candy bars from Rescue Chocolate, and items from Vegan Bodega.
If you’re stumped on what to wear to Veggie Prom, there’s still time to buy this banana dress or this bass print dress. Or check out photos from the 2012 Veggie Prom for inspiration.
But seriously, if I see anyone wearing that bass dress I will buy you a drink.
