The November 19th installment of Vegan Drinks featured a solid lineup. Fresh faces mixed with the very familiar ones. DJ Lil Ray kept the crowd in steady beats. Angels & Kings bartender Jesse replenished drinks effortlessly. And, David from Farm Sanctuary helped us all to adopt turkeys, pigs and cows just in time for the start of the winter holiday season. We owe a special thanks to our friends who donated Farm Sanctuary memberships and adoptions for us to give away to three lucky folks in the crowd.
The people lined up to spread their messages during “Shout Outs.” David announced a plethora of upcoming Farm Sanctuary events. Joyce introduced us to Pets for Life NYC. Kneel revealed that Vegetable Slut has a new Web site and vegan-friendly designs for sale. Abby made an appeal for one of the dogs on Friday’s euthanasia list at Animal Care & Control and offered her assistance to anyone who could foster the dog. We plugged Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s and Terry Hope Romero’s new cookbook, Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, which will get the book release party treatment at MooShoes this Tuesday, November 24th, at 7pm. (Free cookies and sandwiches, y’all!) And, the über talented Mascha returned to Vegan Drinks with her completed photo project, VEGAN NY, which was projected on one of the bar’s walls.

The next Vegan Drinks NYC is Thursday, December 17th, at Angels & Kings Bar from 7pm to 9pm. (Note: This isn’t the last Thursday of the month.) We’ll have many more items to give away and DJ Lil Ray will be back! We can’t wait to see you again! Get on our mailing list!
