Subject: [Traction] Iron Chef Durham: Vegetarian

> There are lots of good reasons to go veggie: shrink your carbon
> footprint, save money, stay healthy.

> Although not all of us are willing to say goodbye to bbq and bacon,
> nowadays most of us have a vegetarian friend, sweetheart, co-worker
> or family member, and wouldn't it be nice to be able to cook them a
> real meal (one that doesn't leave you thinking "where's the beef?")?
> Or maybe you just want to impress your progressive friends at the
> next potluck by showing them that you're not afraid of tofu.

> I'll show you how...

> What: Vegetarian Cooking Class for Carnivores
> (actual vegetarians welcome too!)
> When: Saturday, July 12 at 5pm
> Where: Traction HQ (our new digs!)
> 1018 Broad St. in Durham

> vegan-chocolate mousse with summer fruits.

> This class and these delicious eats come with an exciting
> opportunity. When you register for the event, we ask you to become a
> Traction rockstar (aka monthly donor). For a minimum of $5/month,

> (vegetarians and meat eaters alike), you'll be helping to build our
> progressive community and supporting our fantastic new community
> space where you can expect see more awesome events like this one.
> All that for the cost of a couple of frappe-latte-chinos.­
