2 weeks away!

Vegan Drinks Philly 3.23.09 @ Horizons (611 S. 7th St.) 5:30-9:30 pm

Hi everyone!

There are only 2 weeks left until the big event! This one will certainly be bigger and better than last time. We will have the entire restaurant to ourselves! Horizons will be offering another FANTASTIC Vegan Drinks menu that will again feature many low-priced appetizers and beverages ;) One of the things we are focusing on for this event is local, Philadelphia beers and wines. We may even have some local media visitors out to cover our story! How exciting!!

We are still searching for items that could be used to set up a silent auction to raise money for Chenoa Manor and the Humane League of Philadelphia. Right now, I have a signed copy of This Crazy Vegan Life that was generously donated by Christina Pirello. Unfortunately, in order to do the auction, we are going to need more stuff. If you have anything, or know anyone who might be interested in donating something such as artwork, gift baskets, gift cards, or maybe some vegan treats?? Don't be afraid that any contribution is too small. PIease get in contact with me for suggestions: ed@eatingconsciously.com

In addition, there MAY be an acoustic music set! Nothing is set in stone yet, but I am actively seeking musicians who may be interested in playing this, or future Vegan Drinks Philly events. Again, it must be acoustic because of restrictions by the city for the location (no amplified sound). Wouldn't it just make it a real party if we had some live music? Again, if you have any suggestions for this contact me: ed@eatingconsciously.com

What else? Oh! The people!! All of you! I know some of you are teetering on the edge of coming. The more support we get, the more we can do with these monthly events in the future. People are taking notice even after the first Vegan Drinks event and the more support we have, the more recognition we get. Pretty soon we could have a vegan city, right? So, remember ALL are welcome to come. Vegans, vegetarians, and even the veg-curious! Everyone should feel comfortable at Vegan Drinks Philly and maybe even walk away with more than they came with. If it weren't for all of you who supported the last event and continue to support this one, NONE of this would be happening. Spread the word, forward this letter, bring lots of friends, post flyers, you know what to do!

Everything is really coming together as we speak and there may even be a few more exciting details to be announced shortly. Be sure and check out Vegan Drinks Philly on Facebook and also sign up your email at www.vegandrinksphilly.com to stay up to date. Hope to see everyone there and don't hesitate to get in contact with any suggestions or ideas.

See you at Vegan Drinks Philly! ;)


P.S. Don't forget to come out on May 2nd for The Humane League of Philadelphia and PAWS Walk for the Animals. It's going to be HUGE!! Also, don't forget that on March 16 on HBO, they will be airing Death on a Factory Farm, by the same undercover agent who brought you Dealing Dogs. This would be great for friends and family to tune in to.
