    Next Vegan Drinks NYC is THIS Thursday, March 31st!

    Help us raise funds for World Vets’ Japan Disaster Relief efforts at this week’s Vegan Drinks NYC from 7pm to 9pm on Thursday, March 31st at Angels & Kings Bar in the East Village.

    Vegan Drinks will donate a portion of bar sales and all funds raised through the night’s raffle to World Vets.

    Raffle prizes include generous gift certificates donated by MooShoes ($75), Terri ($50) and Angels & Kings Bar ($50)! Tickets are $5 each. Bring lots of cash!

    Dj3dg (aka, Brian from the Ulster County SPCA) will keep us entertained with his record collection and the kitchen will keep us well fed. Menu items include a vegan burger deluxe platter (with or without vegan cheese + fries and coleslaw), crispy vegan chikkin’ tenders, Pittsburgh-style coleslaw, fries, hummus & chips, and good ol’ chips & salsa or guacamole.

    Drink Specials will include $2 off everything until 8pm; $1 off draft beers and well drinks from 8-9pm! And, we’ll be serving spiked Apple Cider, too! Folks who don’t drink alcohol are much beloved and also quite welcome, but you do have to be 21 to get in.

    Have you read the new and improved Vegan Drinks FAQ? Please read it, even if you’re a regular at our event.

    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.

    If you’re not already following our every move, connect with Vegan Drinks on Facebook, follow us on Twitter (@vegandrinks), and join our e-mail list.

    Vegan Drinks NYC is usually held the last Thursday of the month from 7pm to 9pm at Angels & Kings, 500 East 11th Street (btw Ave A & Ave B), New York, NY 10009.

  2. There will be a concert featuring veg*n performers and vegan food tonight (Wednesday, March 23) at Angels and Kings in the East Village. (This is the same bar where we host Vegan Drinks.)

    Comedian and V-Spot guy Alex Carabano will MC, with music from Mercy Bell, John-Flor Sisante, and others yet to be announced.

    There is a $5-$10 suggested donation, with proceeds going to MercyCorps. Angels and Kings is a bar, so you need to be 21 or older to get in.

    There will be food from Verite Catering and The V-Spot, and a raffle.

    (Next week’s Vegan Drinks will be a fundraiser too, with proceeds going to World Vets Japan Animal Disaster Relief, but more on that in another post.)

    Vegan Drinks is THIS Thursday, 2/24!

    We’re celebrating Sea Shepherd Conversation Society’s recent victory in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary at this week’s Vegan Drinks NYC from 7pm to 9pm on Thursday, February 24th at Angels & Kings Bar in the East Village.

    Vegan Drinks is excited to donate a portion of bar sales to Sea Shepherd to help them celebrate Victory in the Southern Ocean Day! On February 19, 2011, after failing to shake the tail of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society ships, the Japanese whaling fleet announced they would return to Japan, cutting their whale hunt in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary short. Sea Shepherd NYC will be on hand to sell merchandise, sign up new Direct Action Crew members, and be available to answer questions about how you can get involved locally.

    Dj3dg (aka, Brian from the Ulster County SPCA) will be playing records at this event! Records as in vinyl, not MP3s, folks.

    The kitchen will be turning out great bar snacks like a vegan burger deluxe platter (with or without vegan cheese + fries and coleslaw), crispy vegan chikkin’ tenders, Pittsburgh-style coleslaw, fries, hummus & chips, and good ol’ chips & salsa or guacamole.

    Drink Specials will include $2 off everything until 8pm; $1 off draft beers and well drinks from 8-9pm! And, we’ll be serving spiked Apple Cider, too! Folks who don’t drink alcohol are much beloved and also quite welcome, but you do have to be 21 to get in.

    HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!!

    We had a spectacular Valentine’s Day down here in the Southern Ocean. The whales got love of love and the whalers got a new paint job, butyric acid!

    This morning, the Steve Irwin sent their Delta boat after the Nisshin Maru. Using a potato launcher and some very good driving, they dodged the NM’s water cannons and shot butyric acid right onto the slipway and flensing deck of the death ship. We could smell the stench all the way on the Bob Barker!

    Hey Tod!! I am soooo happy we found the whalers and got them running! I can’t even tell you what a relief it is to know the whales are safe for now. We hadn’t seen the Nisshin Maru since the Ady Gil was sunk a month ago. Then, three days ago, we knew we were getting close to finding them because there were whale guts in the water. Grim, but we were hot on their trail. Peter [Hammarstedt] asked for someone to go up on the mast to do watches up there for about four hours. One crewmember, Darius, was just at the end of a watch, and was taking his gloves off to come down, when he took one more look and spotted the NM! Wow! We were so lucky to find the factory ship before any of their other ships found us first. They must have been in the middle of processing too because there were more whale guts in the water and they weren’t moving. It took them a little while to get moving, so we caught right up to them.
