January Events

January's half over, but there are still several cool veggie events to check out!

Wednesday, January 20th

Veg for Life leafleting with Farm Sanctuary- 5:30pm to 7:00pm at Whole Foods, Union Square. Help educate the general public about the vegan diet as well as compassion for animals. If interested, RSVP to David at dbenzaquen@farmsanctuary.org. Leafleting will also take place on Tuesday, January 26th.


Saturday, January 23rd


MFA's Celebrating Compassion Gala- 7pm to midnight at the Prince George Ballroom,  15 E. 27th Street, $75. A fundraiser to benefit Mercy for Animals' work to protect animals, and a fancy-schmancy way to do it too! Vegan hors d'oeurves, vino and cocktails, silent auction, and mingling with vegan guests of honor- you know you'd like to meet fellow veggies outside of Angels and Kings! 



Sunday, January 24th



Edible Queens Winter Warmup- noon to 3pm at L haus, 11-02 49th Avenue, Long Island City, free with canned food donation. Celebrate the new issue of Edible Queens with food, drink, music, and a panel on the Queens food scene. Sample munchies from Manducati's Rustica, Sweetleaf, Sage General Store, and Queens Country Farm Museum. 


Thursday, January 28th 


Vegan Drinks- 7pm at Angels & Kings, 500 E. 11th Street, free. The monthly meetup where you can connect with (and drink with!) like-minded vegans. If you go to any Vegan Drinks meetups, please go to this one- there will be a vegan bake sale to benefit victims of the Haiti earthquake.


Sunday, January 31st


Vegan Bake Sale for Haiti- all day at Moo Shoes, 78 Orchard Street. You've got a real reason to enjoy that delish vegan cupcake- all proceeds from the bake sale go to Doctors Without Borders. For a list of vegan bake sales for Haiti happening across the country, visit The Post Punk Kitchen blog.
