Vegan Drinks XX: Stuff Happened

A LOT of folks bundled up and headed to Thursday, December 17th’s Vegan Drinks at Angels & Kings Bar. If you were busy typing a final exam or avoiding awkward holiday office party conversations or simply stuck at work, then you missed one of the biggest Vegan Drinks to-date. The 20th Vegan Drinks in NYC featured vegan nog and rum cocktails, DJ Lil Ray‘s selections on the sound system, and giveaways from V-Spot, Compassionate Confections, Evolve Accessories and Rational Animal, as well as books from Melanie Joy and Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero.

The good people got up and made their “Shout Outs”, too. Matt from Mercy For Animals made a general call for volunteers. Joyce & Jenny from Pets for Life NYC reminded the crowd about all of the good work they do. Brian introduced us to the Ulster County SPCA. Beth spoke about the Healthy Planet mission. Kate explained where to learn more about her jewelry line, Evolve Accessories. Lauren told everyone how to get more truffles from Compassionate Confections. Dawne announced that she is opening The Good Pantry, a vegan grocery store(!), in NYC soon-ish (Update: Dawne is planning to start a pilot version of the store inside the V-Spot). And, Andreas needs a new vegan neighbor to fill the vacant apartment in his all-vegan apartment building in Manhattan.

If you would like to get in touch with any of the folks mentioned above, please email info@vegandrinks.org.

Extra special thanks to Jesse the Bartender, Jesse the Raffle Ticket Giver, and Matthew the Photographer.

The first 2010 Vegan Drinks NYC is Thursday, January 28th, at Angels & Kings Bar from 7pm to 9pm. We are looking forward to seeing you in the new year! Get on our mailing list!

    I’m so happy that I finally made it out! It was an awesome time. The raffle prizes were so rad – I was bummed that I didn’t win any. :( I guess that means I have to come next time and try again! Indeed, I was so psyched about the event that I broke my almost-three-week hiatus from blogging: http://toomanycombined.blogspot.com/2009/12/vegans-drink-erm-that-is-vegan-drinks.html :D

    Hard to believe there are places that actually have vegan drink get-togethers. With food, to boot! I’m jealous. It’s hard to find any vegan food in my town, much less vegan drinks. I guess we’ll have to settle for eating and drinking, and writing about it at http://www.vegan-o-rama.com. Our local no-kill shelter used to offer a vegetarian option at their fundraising dinners, but they don’t anymore.
