Because it’s not just soulless rich white people in Marin*—there are also some rich white people with hearts—there’s now a Marin Vegan Drinks! And they’re on Twitter and Facebook (go like them because they need to get to 25 likes before Facebook will give them a custom URL! Facebook don’t mess). Oh and may I mention that I love their logo, it’s so ultra New Wave. It almost kinda reminds me of a Nagel. Yeah? Not at all? Whatever, you have a terrible eye. Also, GOD I WANT A NAGEL SO BADLY.
Anyway, this event will be great and the organizers are charming and adorable and if you’re in Marin, you need friends. Trust me. From Pepper, one of the organizers:
We will be starting off our events at The Nickel Rose which is a pretty “swanky” place, as they say. But really, it’s awesome looking, with fabric draped from the walls and checkered floor and candles on tables, in a very modern-vintage look. They make some badass cocktails and mixed drink things—like possibly the most delicious mojitos I’ve had in the bay area. We aren’t aiming to get sponsorship or deals from the bar *yet* (a la SF Vegan Drinks) as we want to make sure there is actually an audience. Seeing as there are enough vegan-interested people in Marin to warrant vegan menus at various restaurants, and In Defense of Animals is located in San Rafael, we figure there is at least some built-in community just waiting to party!
*Don’t get me wrong, it’s still MAINLY soulless rich white people in Marin but obviously there are a few good ones and so you all might as well band together because when the race wars begin, we’ll let you all over the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge (along with the San Quentin inmates, naturally) to fight with us.
