It’s warming up in New York City again, which means that the cherry blossoms are blooming, the cafes are opening up their outdoor seating, and vegan pirates are coming out of the woodwork. If you’re going to a vegan venue in the city this week, chances are you’ll see an Antarctic captain or a Cove Guardian or a vegan Australian sailor, and on May 4th, you’ll get to see the entire menagerie at the same time, at Sea Shepherd’s 35th anniversary party in Manhattan.
Just like when the Sea Shepherd vessel the Steve Irwin came to Chelsea Piers two years ago, Whale Warriors are now flooding the city’s vegan joints. SSCS Captain Peter Hammarstedt visited this month’s Vegan Drinks at Pine Box Rock Shop before continuing on his way to Sweden. The Bob Barker ship manager and former New Yorker Andrea Gordon returns to NYC this week to make sure all the good NYC vegan restaurants are still good. And this Friday night, in Manhattan, you’ll get to see pretty much everyone in NYC who’s ever worn an SSCS Crew jacket, including Paul Watson himself.
On Friday, May 4th, at DCTV from 7pm to 11pm, Sea Shepherd celebrates its 35 years of direct action ocean conservation in NYC. Incidentally, there are still tickets left!
Everyone who attends will get to meet Paul Watson as well as campaign veterans from Operations Waltzing Matilda, No Compromise, Divine Wind, Ferocious Isles, and Infinite Patience. Candle 79, Vegan Treats, Verite Catering, and Cinnamon Snail will be providing food for this event, and you will have the opportunity to win Sea Shepherd campaign memorabilia. Get your tickets here before they sell out!
