Vegans, come party in the Hamptons on August 9th at PCRM’s Passion for Compassion! »
Want to celebrate the animals with the country’s fanciest vegans this summer? Of course you (and your money) do! That’s why you’re attending PCRM’s Passion for Compassion: Creating a Better Future for Animals and People even in the Hamptons on Saturday, August 9!
Get your tickets here! This year there’s a special free shuttle from NYC; it says RSVP by July 15, but there may still be a few spots available, so call/email ASAP to get on there. We are imagining it’ll be an amazing vegan party bus! YAY I ALWAYS WANTED ONE OF THOSE.
If you’ve needed a destination for your vegan eleganza, exquisite beauty, and hardcore animal-rights ethics, Passion for Compassion is the place. We’ll see you on the party bus!
Los Angeles vegans, come to Sharon Palmer’s Plant-Powered for Life book launch at Real Food Daily! »
Delicious vegan food (a free tasting menu!), lively discussion between Plant-Powered for Life author Sharon Palmer and Real Food Daily owner Ann Gentry, and a raffle—anything else on a Wednesday night would be snoozeville in comparison. All this goodness happens Wednesday, July 16 (that’s tomorrow), from 6 to 8 p.m. at Real Food Daily in Pasadena.
Hey, Bay Area! What are you doing tomorrow? Going to the House Rabbit Society adoption event and vegan bake sale, is what!
This event not only benefits a truly wonderful rabbit welfare organization, but it’s part of the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale. So get out to Richmond and buy some sticky buns for the bunnies!
Your vegan-friendly weekend plans, NorCal! Sacramento, Hella Vegan Eats and a haunted hotel! »
According to a recent list by the Huffington Post, “anything off a food truck” is one of the 22 most hipster foods on the planets. Vegan cookies, tacos and beer made the list as well, so whatever. I bet the writer’s head would explode at the thought of SactoMoFo 7 in downtown Sacramento!
If you live in the Sacramento area, go check out Vegansaurus fave and Bay Area darlings, Hella Vegan Eats! The festival is free with a canned food item, or $5 at the door. Hella Vegan Eats, a beer garden and live music — sounds like an incredible afternoon to me! If you are considering coming from the Bay Area, why not make a weekend out of it and head to beautiful, vegan-friendly Nevada City afterwards? (Shout-out out to South Pine Cafe, my tofu scramble was DELICIOUS!) They’ve got a haunted hotel and I even heard there is outdoorsy stuff to do. I wouldn’t know, I spent all my time there in the old-timey bars and interrogating the staff at The National for all the ghost stories!
This weekend: Artisanal LA Spring show with Courtesan Cupcakes! »
Plans this weekend? Why not hit up this artisanal spring show in downtown Los Angeles? It looks like Etsy in action. I LOVE ETSY! I wish I could go, but I’m moving. You know how that is: lifting heavy boxes and waiting for the electric/internet/gas company to show up and set things up. Exciting! Exhausting! Maybe I’ll go on Sunday, we’ll see! My heart wants what it wants, and that just so happens to be sweets by Jessika Lauren’s Courtesan Cupcakes, and she’ll be there! I’m dying to try her stuff—it’s all so beautiful and 100% vegan. Plus, our LA vegan queen (via London now, I know), Quarrygirl, says those cupcakes are some of THE BEST!
I love these events because I always find fun vegan goodies that aren’t necessarily geared towards vegans, ya know? Presale tix are $12 and available right here. Otherwise, it’s $15 at the door. Happy shopping!
Have fun, Oakland: S+M popup at Beer Revolution on Friday! »
Did you have plans for Friday, Bay Area? If they don’t include hitting up Beer Revolution in Oakland for the S + M vegan BBQ, cancel ‘em! Or modify them, I don’t know! Please, just make sure you check this out, and then tell me everything. I’ve been hearing amazing things about this new vegan popup in town! I want to see all the pictures too, because your vegan food, cats and cocktails are what I live for on Instagram. Could I be anymore of a cliche? Answer: no.
Hey New York: Free food at Terri on Thursday for the Great American Meatout! »
Who wants to come to lunch with me on Thursday? Or breakfast? Or dinner? To celebrate this year’s Great American Meatout, Terri in the Financial District is offering $10 of free food for anyone who mentions the Meatout. That is an actual meal’s worth of food! And it’s all vegan, and everything I’ve had (and I work around the corner, so I go here … often) has been good, so really, what else do you need to know?
The Terri in question is at 100 Maiden Lane in Manhattan, and is open 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursday, March 20. Celebrate the Great American Meatout 2014 with free vegan food — what could be finer?
