Thank you to everyone who came out despite the rain last night!  Once, again, there was a great turnout (but who wouldn’t brave the rain for ice cream??)

Among  all the vegan oldtimers, there were a few veg-curious and vegetarians in attendance looking to make the transition to veganism.  Rachel Kay, longtime animal activist and vegetarian since age 10, shared some great tips and resources in the city to make the vegan life easier.   The seasoned ones know, NYC is an incredible place to be vegan.  The correct answer to “Isn’t it hard being vegan?” is a resounding, “NO!”  With all the vegan cafes and restaurants (Candle 79 tops my list), bakeries galore (Cowgirl’s Baking, BabycakesGonepie), and most importantly, Lula’s Sweet Apothecary, it really is one of the most veg-friendly places in the world.  What are your favorite places to wine and dine in the city?

We have an incredible team of mentors who have generously signed up to provide guidance to a new or struggling vegan.  If you’re in need of help, sign up here!  Help is only three blank lines and a circle away!

Join us next week for the next edition of Veg Tuesdays: Business Networking.  Bring plenty of business cards and have a 60-sec commercial ready (optional but highly encouraged!)  Let’s support like-minded professionals and businesses!

If you’re new to the vegan lifestyle or possibly curious about what it means to be vegan, come out to next week’s Veg Tuesdays: Vegan 101!

Learn of the many reasons for going vegan (we’ll keep it light, this is a party after all!)  We’ll have tips and tidbits on surviving in the city and some yummy treats to help acquaint you with the joys of veganism.  Enjoy a variety of different ice cream and sorbets by Verite Catering and escape from the insane heat!

See you Tuesday!

Thank you all so much for coming out to our very first Veg Tuesdays! It was a huge success! If you couldn’t make it, here’s what you missed out on!

Veg Tuesdays is a new weekly veg social event that aims to bring together people of different backgrounds who have one thing in common, their avoidance of animal products.  Whether you are vegan/vegetarian for ethical, health, environmental, or religious reasons or an omnivore curious about the lifestyle, all are welcome to join in the festivities!

Each week promises to be a good time meeting new friends with fine wining and dining.  Some will have a charitable spin, others will be pure gluttony.

Admission will always be FREE!
