Nothing comes between a vegan and her Vegan Drinks. Not even a snowpocalypse. Truth be told, Vegan Drinks on Thursday, February 25th, at Angels & Kings Bar was a bit more intimate than usual, but it was a good time as always. Plus, DJ Lil Ray played a set of get-you-warm-all-over Motown classics to beat the cold away.
The “Shout Outs” featured both the usual suspects and some new faces! David from Farm Sanctuary provided a quick run down of his organization’s upcoming events. Sarah G. introduced us to Rescue Chocolate, which donates 100 percent of its net profits to animal rescue groups across the United States. (Try the Peanut Butter Pit Bull bar! It’s officially my favorite chocolate combined with peanut butter sweet treat!) Sarah H. wowed the crowd with news of Terri, a new vegan and organic cafe in Manhattan’s Flatiron District. (Try the Chickpea “Tuna” Melt!) Patrick from the Humane Society of the United States reminded folks about the upcoming March 24th New York State Humane Lobby Day in Albany. Wayne promoted the Veg Climate Alliance‘s work and Eileen made a similar plug for Vegan Outreach‘s activities in NYC. And, last but not least, Danny from The V-Spot spoke about his restaurant’s upcoming food-related endeavors. (Thanks for the empanadas and spring rolls, Danny and Alex!)
