It’s your weekend activities, featuring Chrissie Hynde, fancy pets, and protests!  »

Are you ready for fun this weekend? Well? Because we have FUN ACTIVITIES for you and we expect you to PARTICIPATE. The Chrissie Hynde show, Pet Pride Day, rodeo and animal testing protests, and the Mini Maker Faire—FUN!

Saturday, Oct. 23
Chrissie Hynde plays Bimbo’s, and you could win tickets to see her! Remember, your Vegansaurus has three pairs to give away; enter ASAP because the contest closes at 6 tonight (FRIDAY!). Purchase tickets here if you don’t win!

The last protest of the gross, gross rodeo happens tonight at 6 at the Cow Palace.

Sunday, Oct. 24
It’s the East Bay Mini Maker Faire! It’s just like the big-time annual Maker Faire, but just for Alameda and Contra Costa counties, and should be pretty cool. It runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Park Day School at 360 42nd St. in Oakland. Tickets are $15 now, or $20 at the door.

Come out to San Francisco Animal Care and Control’s Pet Pride Day, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Sharon Meadow in Golden Gate Park. Visit the website for details.

Or first come protest animal testing at UCSF at noon for National Primate Liberation Week, the importance of which we illustrated yesterday with a cartoon.

Tuesday, Oct. 26
The Vegansaurus/Nasoya/Skinny Bitch/awesome shorts giveaway ends today! Better enter NOW!

Friday, Oct. 29
Wildcare is having another one of its lovely fancy benefits; tonight it’s an Evening with Owls! Held at the Marin Art and Garden Center from 6 to 9:30 p.m., this will benefit the Hungry Owl Project. Tickets are $75 per person, and festivities will include appetizers, light dinner, desserts and wine, and live owls will be present. Goodness.

Saturday, Oct. 30
It’s East Bay Vegan Bakesale time! Get to Issues at 20 Glen Ave. at Piedmont in Oakland between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.; proceeds will benefit Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue and the East Bay Children’s Book Project.

Vegansaurus Giveaway: Tickets to Chrissie Hynde at Bimbo’s THIS SATURDAY!  »

Chrissie Hynde, we love her so. Not only is “Brass in Pocket” the preferred Karaoke song for several Vegansaurus writers, she’s a bad-ass vegan and even owns a vegan restaurant, Vegiterranean, in Ohio. How much do you want to marry this woman? The only correct answer is VERY FUCKING MUCH. 

But wait! It gets better! Chrissie Hynde is performing at Bimbo’s 365 Club this Saturday and Bimbo’s is awesomely making their entire menu veg for the event. I mean, it’s no Millennium but the fact that you can eat a Boca burger and french fries and watch Chrissie Hynde be amazing just sounds really, really happy-making. 

So, we’re giving away THREE PAIRS OF TICKETS to the show! Lucky you! It’s THIS Saturday, Oct. 23; doors at 8 p.m., show start at 9. For a chance to win, let me know what Chrissie Hynde song you’re gonna rock the next time you do Karaoke. And don’t say, “Back on the Chain Gang,” because that’s totally mine. I even act out laying train tracks during my rendition. It’s actually kinda poetic, I mean, the whole story of a woman on a chain gang, only there because she killed her husband and his mistress after catching them in the act. She must pay for her crime of passion by doing the hard time, but really, who can blame her!? 

Alternately, just type your name in comments. I’m not picky. I’ll pick a winner randomly tomorrow evening so make sure to leave a good email address with your answer and lez do this!

If you don’t win, you can still go! And support a rad vegan artist and eat a Boca burger or two and shake your ass to her sweet, sweet sounds!
