This month's Vegan Drinks is March 29 at Solas Bar NYC. We’ll be raising money for The Coalition for Healthy School Food.
At the event, you can support The Coalition by purchasing raffle tickets for some exciting prizes. Those will be announced soon.
One of our favorite food vendors is coming:
Marty's V Burger!
Once again, DJ Miss Blue Sky will be in the booth.

The Coalition for Healthy School Food (CHSF) is a nonprofit that introduces plant-based foods and nutrition education in schools to educate the whole school community.
Vegan Drinks is a monthly social networking event for people interested in promoting veganism and advocating for animal rights. Vegan Drinks’ mission is to bring together a diverse group of people—from cupcake aficionados to animal lawyers to vegans of all stripes in between—to build new coalitions and promote the sharing of resources. Vegan Drinks is for newbies and oldies. All we expect is an interest in animal rights, veganism and the pursuit of after-work fun. Show up and introduce yourself, pass around business cards (if you've got ‘em) and embarrass yourself at least once an hour.
What to do?
Be friendly! We'll be passing out nametags, so you can march right up to someone and greet them by name.
Promote! If you're representing an organization (either as an employee or volunteer or general supporter), talk up the organization and the work you've been involved in. If you're representing you, talk up your vegan and AR interests, your favorite restaurant, your dream job for animals, your blog, etc., etc.
Make a shout out! Starting around 8:30pm, we'll turn down the music and encourage people to promote themselves, their groups and/or causes for 30 seconds. If you represent a vegan or animal rights group, come prepared with your spiel and literature!
Sip a drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic, we don't care!) and relax with like-minded folks for a couple of hours.
What to bring?
Pamphlets promoting your organization
Tip money for the bartenders
Vegan Drinks takes place the last Thursday of the month (usually; check the date to be sure!) from 7pm to 10pm. It's an alcohol-based event and it's at a bar, so you have to be at least 21 years old.
Our venue, Solas, is ADA compliant and wheelchair accessible.

There is no dress code. If you come straight from work in a suit, we promise not to make fun of you. Entrance is free, but the booze is not. Remember to tip your friendly bartenders!
Come on out - we'd love to see you!
