  1. marchvdsignJoin us THIS Thursday, August 29, from 7:00pm to 10:00pm for Vegan Drinks NYC! Find us at Fontana’s Barlocated at 105 Eldridge Street on the Lower East Side. Show up hungry because Chef Oscar Vegan Revolution will serve up what is rumored to be the best vegan tuna melt and mac ‘n cheese in town, among other delicious fare!

    This month, we’ll be benefiting Evolve for Animals, “a grassroots nonprofit organization that unabashedly advocates for the total and unfettered rights of non-human animals through education-based outreach events such as tabling, leafleting, public speaking engagements, film screenings, and vegan soup kitchens. While other organizations may focus on the treatment of animals, EFA presents the case for animal rights from the perspective of use and commodification where any and all impositions on sentient life is defined as violence, and veganism is the proposed solution.”

    Stuff your dollars in the donation jar, and buy raffle tickets from Evolve for Animals to win one of these great prizes:

    • Copy of Sistah Vegan
    • Copy of The Global Vegan Family Cookbook
    • Copy of Defiant Daughters
    • T-shirts by Arm the Animals
    • $25 Vegan Essentials Gift Certificate

    Wanna let all your Internet friends know you’re going? RSVP on Facebook if you’re of the mindset to do so.

    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.

  2. TCBY-SilkIt looks like all 350+ TCBY locations are now serving Silk-branded almond-based frozen yogurt, though details may depend somewhat on the local franchisee.

    Go Dairy Free, in a post aimed more at the allergy crowd has a bunch of further details (and they actually tasted the stuff; they like it!).

    There is also some social media sweepstakes thing going on around the new product, if you like that kind of thing.

    I’m assuming that the cultures used are not dairy-based, but you might want to check on that.

    The press release contains zero mention of anything to do with veganism, or any acknowledgement that some customers might have an ethical problem with dairy, but I suppose that’s to be expected from a giant dairy chain. No doubt, if this stuff sells well, they and other large chains will invest even more in dairy-free products.

    This is definitely good news in that it presumably means less dairy will be purchased (unless they’re banking on a reverse-veto halo effect, and they’ll sell more dairy because dairy-free eaters will now want to go to TCBY their with dairy-eating friends?). Of course, ethical eaters may wish to minimize patronizing giant amoral MadrigalElectromotive-like conglomerates such as TCBY parent Mrs Fields Famous Brands, and Silk’s parent Dean Foods. But hey, it will be a great day when McDonald’s adds more vegan options, too, even if you never eat there yourself!

    Thanks to our good friend Jessica of NYC Veggie Prom and Vegan Conquest for letting us know about this.

    Update: As careful-reading commenter Charie points out, the Go Dairy Free interview with Reno TCBY owners Vince & Marlene says “It is not only a dairy-free frozen yogurt, but also soy-free, gluten-free, and vegan.” So there’s the “v” word from the local franchisee end, anyway.
