Ladies who Lunch visit: Vegan Drinks NYC

The Vegan LWL will be hanging with non members (boys and girls), while enjoying some yummy Vegan drinks.

See details below:

This month, Vegan Drinks NYC benefits Empty Cages Collective (ECC), a New York-based animal and environmental advocacy organization. ECC aims to cultivate a culture where animals are recognized as fellow sentient beings worthy of respectful and compassionate treatment. Through advocacy, education, hands-on rescue and assistance, the ECC envisions a world free of animal exploitation, abuse, and ecologically destructive behavior.


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 veg*ns 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.

*Although we think love is grand, Vegan Drinks is not a singles’ event. But, if you happen to meet the love of your life at Vegan Drinks, don't forget to invite us to the wedding!


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 8pm, we'll turn down the music and encourage people to promote themselves, their groups and/or causes for 30 seconds. If you represent a veg*n 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?
Business cards
Pamphlets promoting your organization
Tip money for the cute bartenders
Your A-game
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.

If you have questions or comments, contact us at [masked].

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!

    Learned of some interesting groups working towards Vegan causes. Great to hang out with the VLWL NYC crew. The Vegan drinks event itself was okay. If you're looking for love, then this is a great event to attend. If you're looking for a cause to give to then this is a great event to attend. If you're looking to make some good business contacts then this is not the event to attend. Lots of people with ideas, but lacking the practicality of implenmenting those ideas. I also couldn't figure out why the bartender was wearing a "Sammy's Steakhouse" t-shirt.
