Join us THIS Thursday, August 30, from 7:00pm to 10:00pm for Vegan Drinks NYC! We’ll occupy the Chandelier Room at Fontana’s Bar, located at 105 Eldridge Street on the Lower East Side. Clementine Bakery will be there to feed you silly and represent for Brooklyn! (Scroll down for Clementine’s special Vegan Drinks menu!)
Grand Format returns to play great music for us. Plus: Special guest DJ set by Arthur Smilios (Gorilla Biscuits, CIV, companion of Lysaght, the most photographed cat on the internet!) and Jay Johnson (Punk Rock Karaoke Chicago, straight A student!, companion of Liam, definitely not the most photographed pup!).
This month, any money you throw in the donation jar will benefit the wonderful (and easy to visit!) Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary (WFAS). Surrounded by the Catskill Mountains in the town made famous for peace and music, Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary provides shelter to cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, sheep, and goats who have been rescued from cases of abuse, neglect and abandonment. WFAS is a place where visitors can come face to face with the animals who most only know as dinner and learn about the devastating effects of modern-day agribusiness on the animals, the environment and human health. At WFAS you can frolic with goats in a large open pasture, sit down with a pig who wants nothing more than a belly rub, cuddle with chickens who seek out your attention or get nuzzled by some very friendly sheep!
WFAS will have a slammin’ raffle for all your raffle-winning needs (all money raised goes to WFAS, of course!). Enter to win the following:
A night’s stay at WFAS’ new bed & breakfast!

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.
