NYC vegans flocked to Angels & Kings Bar this past Thursday night like it was their birthright. New faces mixed well with the more seasoned ones. An enterprising gent even brought his own soy milk to the bar so he could down vegan White Russians like a pro all night long.
The usual suspects and then some got up to spread their messages during “Shout Outs.” Robyn reminded everyone to register for Farm Sanctuary’s Walk for Farm Animals* (Sunday, October 4th). Susan announced NYC Vegan EatUp events, including the Daiya Cheese Crawl on October 2nd. Jessica updated the crowd on the availability of spectator tickets and chef spots at September’s Veggie Conquest (secret ingredient: squash). David of Farm Sanctuary listed a litany of events sponsored by his organization in coming weeks, including October 14th’s “Farm Animals and the Law” at NYU. And, last but not least, Jeff, founder of Veg Social NJ, announced that he recently moved to NYC and started a Veg Social NYC chapter. The next two potlucks will be held October 17th on the Lower East Side and November 5th in Brooklyn Heights. Follow both chapters on Facebook and email VegSocialNYC@gmail.com to get on its mailing list!
