Join us THIS Thursday, December 27, 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. SoulKofa will be serving stuffed “duck,” General Tso’s Tofu, “salmon” smothered with mushrooms, vegan lasagna, South African smoked spinach, and three kinds of cake (chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry short cake)! Seriously, wait until next year to think about joining that gym!
This month, we’ll be benefiting the Empty Cages Collective (ECC), a New York-based animal and environmental advocacy organization. ECC aims to cultivate a culture where animals are recognized as fellow sentient beings worthy of respectful and compassionate treatment. Through advocacy, education, hands-on rescue and assistance, the ECC envisions a world free of animal exploitation, abuse, and ecologically destructive behavior. Stuff some dollars in their donation jar and stock up on their raffle tickets so you can walk away with the following great prizes:
- Franchia gift certificate
- Blossom gift certificate
- Candle Cafe West gift certificate
- ‘sNice gift certificate
- One Lucky Duck gift certificate and signed cook book
- Compassion Company gift card for t-shirt, buttons, and stickers
- Basket filled with vegan goodies and cruelty free products, hand picked by Empty Cages Collective
- Pangea Vegan Products t-shirt
- Mark Ross photography book
Music by some folks, including DJ Jason Das!
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. Do you represent an animal rights group you think should be the beneficiary of an upcoming Vegan Drinks NYC? Visit vegandrinks.org/beneficiaries to learn more about how to make that happen.
