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 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.
