  1. I love Jorja Fox, now more than ever.

    I love Jorja Fox, now more than ever.

    • One of my favorite people, Jenny Brown, is speaking at Jivamukti Café on Saturday, 11/12, from 7-9pm. In Peace Begins on Your Plate: Why Farm Animals Matter in Our Quest for Peace, the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary cofounder will talk about the way animals are raised for food and how we can be better advocates for our fellow critters.
    • O Canada! Why do you get your very own vegan patty from Subway but we don’t? All in good time, I guess.
    • Next Monday, 11/14, from 7-9pm, NY CLASS is hosting Happy Hour for the Horses at the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street. Join super SuperVegan Patrick Kwan to learn more about the campaign to put the horse-drawn carriages out of business. Drinks specials include the “Horseless Carriage Cocktail” for $3.50, and 2-for-1 beer, wine and well drinks, plus snacks courtesy of Sweet Cheeks Vegan Bakery. Check out these and other events on our NYC Events Calendar.
    • I don’t have any ink, but I have a lot of friends who’ll be happy to see there’s a new vegan tattoo balm out there.
    • Meatless Every Days is better, but Meatless Mondays is a good start. Share this video with the omnis in your life and get them moving in the right direction.
    • Jorja Fox stars in a new ad campaign for PETA, asking people to investigate how their food came to be. How cool is it that the actress’s veg epiphany happened in the greatest borough of all?
  2. Heya, Angelenos! Got plans this Saturday? Too bad, change ’em! Head over to Halloveegan, L.A.’s Vegan Drinks, presented by ChicaVegan! Taking place at Verdugo Bar, which has an incredibly huge and well curated beer selection and full bar, there promises to be loads of vegan grub, tons of prizes and it all sounds ridiculous in the best possible way. What are you gonna wear?? LOTS of details after the jump:

  3. I’m home sick with a sinus infection, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay in and miss all the fun (like Saturday’s Smorgasburg, which for the first time featured items from the Vegan Bodega). But thankfully Smorgasburg happens every Saturday, so you’ll have another chance to go next week, and the week after that.

    Two other very cool events are happening Sunday, 10/23:

    Someone bring me a doggie bag!

  4. Yesterday was my favorite day of the year: ThanksLiving, Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary’s yearly celebration in honor of the turkeys, and of all the animals who are raised for food. It’s a day to hang with the critters, meet vegans from all over, listen to great music, and, of course, eat amazing food. And what a beautiful day it was! Saturday’s rain gave way to comfortable temperatures and sunny skies (until after dinner, anyway). Yesterday was also the first chance anyone had to check out the farm’s new B&B—a lovely, quaint, yet spacious-feeling little house across from the main field. I can’t wait to stay there! But that’s a topic for another post; right now we have food to discuss.

    While the guests perused the silent auction items and strategically placed their raffle tickets (I walked away with a set of Woodstock Chimes and a gift certificate to V-Note), booze from Frey Wines and Stone Brewing Company Beers flowed (until the red wine ran out). And then came the appetizers: I really enjoyed Regal Vegan’s Faux Gras Crostini and the Buffalo Bites from Blossom; my favorite restaurant apparently also donated Cape Cod Cakes, but they went so quickly, I never even saw them. Also making the rounds were Faux Beef Medallions with Béarnaise Sauce, which might have been better if they’d made it out hot; on the cool side they were a little chewy. That said, their flavor almost resembled the meatiness of Primal Strips, so they might be good dehydrated.

    Then it was time to sit and eat, and listen, but just a little: This year there was no lineup of speakers, just founder Jenny Brown greeting the guests and thanking the staff and volunteers, who included the chef from Jivamuktea Cafe; David Silver, the former owner of Second Helpings (and one of my housemates); and vegan dynamo Terry Hope Romero, who was at the kitchen’s helm. And dinner was an impressive array: Chipotle Sweet Potato Bisque with Cashew Crema, Cornbread Sofrito Stuffing with Veggie Chorizo, Massaged Kale Salad wih Raisins and Toasted Almonds, and the much-anticipated Savage River Faux Chicken Rajas in Orange Garlic Mojo.

  5. Tonight, Wednesday, September 7th from 6:30 to 9:30pm, the League of Humane Voters will be hosting a fundraiser for the creation of a Political Action Committee for Animals. There are lots of special interests at work in government, so why not add an animal PAC to the mix, right? By influencing the vote in NYC, voters who care about animal advocacy issues can help influence the New York State Legislature—of the NYS legislature’s 215 members, 89 legislators (over 40% of the NYS Legislature) are from NYC. This means that for any animal protection bill to pass in New York State, it must have the support of state legislators from NYC.

    Tickets are $60 and available at the door and there will be a buffet from V-Spot to enjoy while you listen to speakers and get motivated to take our government back. Because “We are ready to march…Everybody here’s got a vote” after all (what can I say, I’m all riled up after watching Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. throw down at a Labor Day union rally in Detroit).

    Also of note, communications expert Josephine Bellacomo will donate a 30-minute free communications strategy session/consultation with the purchase of 2 copies of her book Move the Message at the event tonight.

    Tomorrow, Thursday, Sept 8th, MooShoes will be hosting Fashion’s Night Out from 6-10pm. In case you weren’t aware that you live in the fashion capital of the world (yeah, Milan and Paris, I said it), Fashion’s Night Out is an annual event where retail stores stay open after hours for your shopping pleasure (such good Capitalists we are).

    A 15% discount will be offered on all purchases made at the store all evening and Cri De Coeur and Vaute Couture will be there with their wares. Grub and grog from Blossom and Vegan Vine will be served. There will be a chance to win a $50 MooShoes gift card or a Cri De Coeur bag and the money raised will go to benefit Alice Dietz’s work for Brooklyn’s feral cats, which of course you already know about because Alice was profiled by yours truly for Supervegan.

    Also happening that night is Pints for Pigs at The Half Pint at 76 West 3rd St. (between West 3rd & Thompson) from 7-10pm. The Half Pint is generously donating 25% of the tab to Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary and vegan fare will be available for purchase from Blossom du Jour to benefit the animals and the work of WFAS. The event is hosted by Brett Wyker as part of his upcoming marathon run for WFAS in which he’ll be running 26.2 miles at the Smuttynose Brewing Company’s Rockfest & Marathon on World Farm Animals Day. Visit Brett’s Crowdrise project page for more details.

    And to help raise additional funds, The Half Pint will feature Smuttynose Brewing Company beers. It’s clearly a win-win situation.

    Also, the next Vegan Drinks on Thurs Sept 29th will benefit WFAS so if you miss the fundraiser tomorrow there’ll be another chance to drink beer for the pigs (and goats, cows, chickens, turkeys, rabbit, sheep, ducks…).
