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?
Guest post: Second NYC vegan and animal rights book swap happening Saturday! Be there! »
The first vegan and animal rights book swap was such a hit, we are gearing up for Bookswap 2.0 on Saturday, Dec. 10! At the first swap, we raised $124 to donate to Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, with about 20 swappers donating $62 dollars, which got a matching donation. All books that weren’t swapped were donated to nearby thrift stores. Success!
For the second swap we’re moving to Brooklyn’s community space Launchpad, with raffle prizes from local Mexican restaurant Chavela’s, a $20 gift certificate from the vegan restaurant Terri, and donations from local shops Owl and Thistle General Store and Raganella, which makes handmade body care products.
Once again, the swap is free, and all money raised will be donated to Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. What’s more, through the end of the year, all donations made to Woodstock through Dec. 31 will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $100,000! Your money is going even further! Read an FAQ about the event, find out about volunteer needs, and keep updated on further swaps with our mailing list. Come and swap me your books, won’tcha?
