Thank you for being a friend…to animals!
I double heart Rue McClanahan. Rue’s role as the spicy senior Southern belle Blanche Devereaux on the awesome late 80s/early 90s hit sitcom The Golden Girls won her a cult following of the gays and elderly women her character has inspired towards sexual liberation. And, as a longtime vegetarian and animal advocate, the actress has inspired people of all sexualities and ages to make more compassionate choices.
As a bonus, the party also features some great food and more great people. Here’s a list of some name drops: artist Peter Max, singer Nellie McKay, soap star Grant Aleksander, cartoonist Dan Piraro, Candle 79, Counter, Vegetarian’s Paradise 2, Madras Cafe, Soy Delicious Ice Cream, Whole Earth Bakery & Kitchen, WholeSoy Yogurt, Carbon Based Cookies, and Tastee Vegan. Plus, my two favorite words: Open Bar! Woo Hoo!
Saturday, November 10th. 8PM-12 Midnight. Jivamukti Yoga School, 841 Broadway, 2nd floor, between 14th and 13th Streets. Cocktail attire. $50. Tickets can be purchased in advance.
