Summer in the City…

…means vegans, vegans, vegans! 

Summer is in full swing, and if you’re looking for a way to spend these balmy…okay, sweltering days and nights, here are some fun ideas: 

Check out the NYC Vegetarian & Vegan Meetup, a Meetup group with upwards of 5,000 members that’s been going strong for 10 years! Here you’ll get the opportunity to meet other like-minded foodies, animal lovers, and general health nerds (hey, we are too) at great veg friendly restaurants and bars like Juice Pedaler and Soaked (the closest to a “healthy cocktail” that you can get!). And if you meet the love of your life, we’d love to cater your wedding!

If you’re looking to network with other ambitious Veg Heads, there’s Vegan Drinks, a monthly social networking event (like Facebook, but real life!) for folks committed to veg-related causes. This month’s Vegan Drinks is July 25th, so you have a full week to get excited!

So maybe drinking’s not your cup of kombucha, but we bet playing with animals is! Why not take a trip to the ASPCA to make some new furry friends? Or, if you’re looking to make a day of it, visit our friends at Catskills Animal Sanctuary (they recently named Beyond Sushi a Compassionate Cuisine Champion, no biggie) in Saugerties, NY. CAS is a completely free-range sanctuary for farm animals who have been rescued from cruel treatment. They offer tours, vegan cooking classes, and other great events geared toward animal rights education. 

We’ll be hard at working making fresh vegan sushi for you all summer, but we hope you check these out! And if you hear about other cool veggie events happening in NYC, let us know in the comments!
