There has been quite a bit of feedback concerning the availability of vegan foods at the new location. I think it's time to make something clear- Vegan Drinks Philly is not a food-related event. It's not a dinner. It's not a potluck. It's about vegans, vegetarians, and veg-curious getting connected with like-minded people. Sorry to sound so harsh, but there are PLENTY of other vegan potlucks and dinners if that's what you're looking for.

If you're only concerned about eating, then this event is not for you. Please visit to read the purpose of Vegan Drinks events and if you have any comments regarding it, please direct them to That being said, I'm actively working to increase the vegan offerings available and the more people who come to these events, the more leverage we have :)

Helping Haiti!

Since we're not raising any money at this month's event, I'd like to direct you all to give what you can to help the people of Haiti. Food For Life Global is going to begin sending vegan food to Haiti within the next week and your contribution of only $25 can deliver 100 vegan meals to the helpless in Haiti. The situation in Haiti is nothing less than utterly devastating and if you aren't exactly aware of the situation, please watch this video clip of a recent interview from Democracy Now! Please give whatever you can, these people have NOTHING and desperately need our help.

Vegan Drinks Philly 1.28.10!

Don't be fooled by imitators! This is the PREMIER and ORIGINAL vegan social event in Philadelphia!

The first Vegan Drinks started up in NYC in May 2008. Since then, Vegan Drinks have been popping up in cities across the nation. So, what exactly is Vegan Drinks? Here's the lowdown from

"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!"

Vegan Drinks Philly took root here in Philadelphia, in January 2009 and has been going strong every month ever since! THIS IS OUR ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY! So, put down the leaflets and sit back to network and socialize with like-minded individuals. Together we can cultivate ideas, spread the vegan message, and work towards our one common goal- ANIMAL LIBERATION.

This will be our second event at our newest location:

Earth, Bread + Brewery (upstairs lounge)
7136 Germantown Ave (plenty of free parking)
Philadelphia, PA 19119
**no cover**all ages**bring friends (especially non-vegans)**
7-11 PM

Please bring non-vegans, or "veg-curious," as this is a great way to introduce people to other vegans and show them what a happy and fun bunch we all are! The last event was well-attended, but it's always nice when we get a higher turnout. So, if you haven't been in a while, consider making it out!

Also, if you haven't done so already, be sure and head on over to and click "subscribe" on the right-hand side so you'll get an email alerting you to all future Vegan Drinks Philly events!!

See you there!
