  1. Vegan Drinks Logo

    Join us THIS Thursday, June 28, from 7:00pm to 10:00pm for Vegan Drinks NYC! We’ll be back at Fontana’s Bar, located at 105 Eldridge Street on the Lower East Side, with a food slinger in tow, Heirloom Vegan Eatery. Wear your best loose fitting garments!

    And, if the prospect of being able to tell your grandchildren you were at the 50th Vegan Drinks NYC isn’t enough, you’ll be supporting GooseWatch NYC just by showing up! This month, any money you throw in the donation jar will benefit Goosewatch NYC, an advocacy coalition committed to the preservation of New York City’s Canada geese and opposed to the Canada goose roundups which have been conducted in New York City by the United States Department of Agriculture.

    Cleverly on-topic raffle prizes will include Faux Gras (thanks for the donation, Regal Vegan!) and Goose Watch Wine! Additional donated raffle prizes include a cooking class from Cassie Karopkin and a painting by GooseWatch NYC Inwood Hill Park organizer Rosemarie Kliegman. We hope you win big!

    You will find us in Fontana’s Chandelier Room (don’t worry, it’s not too fancy). There is a (free!) pool table. And a DJ booth up high to make DJ Grand Format that much taller than you, shorty.

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

    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 7:00pm to 10:00pm.

    Four years of Vegan Drinks!

    Join us THIS Thursday, May 31, from 7:00pm to 10:00pm for Vegan Drinks NYC! We’ll be at the fabulous Fontana’s Bar, located at 105 Eldridge Street on the Lower East Side. It’s right near the Grand Street and Delancey/Essex Subway stops and very well situated for biking in from Brooklyn.

    We’ll be celebrating the fourth anniversary of Vegan Drinks and six years of SuperVegan! Come break cake lovingly prepared by Vérité Catering with us.

    You will find us in Fontana’s Chandelier Room (don’t worry, it’s not too fancy). There is a (free!) pool table. And a DJ booth up on a balcony for DJ Grand Format to judge us from.

    This month, any money you throw in the donation jar will benefit the not-for-profit Anjellicle Cat Rescue, a Hell’s Kitchen-based nonprofit that has been a lifeline for abandoned, stray, and neglected cats and kittens for over a decade. Be sure to bring your good luck with you as Anjellicle will be raffling off prizes donated by Vegan Essentials and One Lucky Duck, among others!

    • A screening of Forks Over Knives convinced Ozzy Osbourne to go vegan in an effort to stay healthy. Maybe he can take cooking classes with this guy.
    • Same thing happened to Russell Brand after seeing the film. Meanwhile, over at Smith, students were in an uproar over rumors that the school was going completely vegetarian and locavore. Like that’s a bad thing?
    • Famous veggie Paul McCartney released his first vegetarian cookbook this week, The Meat-Free Monday Cookbook. And on the other side of the Channel, the French government has said Non! to vegetarian meals in schools. What the foudre?
    • Chrissie Hynde’s Akron restaurant, VegiTerranean, might be closing, but the singer is set to open up a new vegan eatery in LA with Ellen and Portia.
    • Don’t throw meatballs at vegan actress Lea Michele if you don’t want to get kicked off the set of Glee. Well, unless they’re these.
    • I don’t know about you, but I don’t get out to Jersey much. Which is why I’m thrilled the Cinnamon Snail Truck is heading to Manhattan and Brooklyn starting in mid-November.
  3. I don’t know about you, but I love art. But other than stumbling into the odd gallery on my way to dinner every once in a while, I don’t really follow contemporary artists, and I couldn’t tell you who’s who or what their work is like. That goes double for vegan artists. Right now the Metropolitan Community Church of New York is giving us a chance to change that, by hosting a Vegan Art Show, with an opening night reception this Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    The exhibit, which opened Sept. 4 and runs through Oct. 28, features 19 vegan artists working in a variety of mediums (the only participant whose name I recognized was Mickey Z., but you might also know Antonia Barbano, Pam Curry, Alyssa Diaz, Daniel Dunbar, Shoshana Frishberg-Izzo, Danielle Geist, Thomas Good, Valerie King, Lauren Krohn, Les LaRue, Kerry Lea, Sara Pegarella, Jennifer Powell, Jody Rasch, Karen Stevenson, Greg Straight Edge, Frances Wood and Claire Zeaman.) And the free fete this Wednesday, from 5pm to 8pm, will be replete with vegan wine (from Vegan Vine, perhaps?), hors d’oeuvres from Caravan of Dreams, and music. Some of the proceeds will benefit the church and other charities, while a portion of handmade jewelry sales will go to New Jersey’s For the Animals Sanctuary.

    I’d be first in line if I could get out of work at a decent hour, but hopefully your job is more conducive to socializing than mine is. If so, get yourself to the church’s Jackson Hall Art Gallery and soak it all in. Then leave a comment and let us know which artists’ work spoke to you. As Georgia O’Keeffe said, “I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way—things I had no words for.”
