Vegan Chicago's 16th Anniversary Celebration!
Greetings! December marks Vegan Chicago’s 16th anniversary and we hope you’ll join us at Moonlight Vulture ( to help us celebrate! Upon check-in near the door, guests will receive a name tag and a raffle ticket for prizes that will be given away during the event. From there, attendees can socialize and optionally order from Moonlight Vulture’s vegan menu selections ( As Moonlight Vulture is BYOB, attendees of legal drinking age are welcome to bring the alcoholic beverage(s) of their choice. There will also be non-alcoholic options for purchase. There will be seating for approximately 30 people. With that in mind, if attendance exceeds 30 people, I kindly ask that, if you’ve secured a seat, if you’ve already eaten, and if you see someone in need of a seat to eat or for other reasons, please consider offering yours. It’s a great opportunity to mingle with others! Vegan Chicago’s membership consistently continues to grow and, with the current figure at 5,800+, we couldn’t be happier. As the longevity and success of any group is attributable to the support of its members, on behalf of the Vegan Chicago organizing team, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you!” to all of you. You’re wonderful! Please consider joining us for this anniversary celebration. If you’re unable to attend, we hope to see you soon. Thank you for choosing to live a compassionate life.
