The Animal Rights Coalition (ARC) and Fast & Furless Vegan Boutique will host "Vegan Drinks" on Saturday, March 7, 2009, from 7-9 pm, at 2615 E. Franklin Ave., Minneapolis. Vegan Drinks is a monthly social networking event for people interested in veganism and animal rights. Tip back a cosmopolitan, munch on some grubbin' vegan snacks, and meet other like-minded people. This event is free and open to ages 21 and up.
Vegan Drinks groups have started up all around the world. With its beginnings in New York City, 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. The premiere Vegan Drinks event in Minneapolis on March 7, 2009, will be catered by Rhymes with Vegan creator and host, Meagan Holtgrewe. (www.rhymeswithvegan.com)
If you have a vegan-friendly business, this is a great opportunity to talk it up. Share your interests, your favorite restaurant, your dream job helping animals, your blog, or whatever unique ideas you can bring to the table. All that is expected is an interest in animal rights, veganism, and the pursuit of a little fun on a Saturday night. Remember, bring business cards to share, a bit of tip money for the bartender, and your "A" game. ARC and Fast & Furless hope to have a new event each month.
