Want to grab a Vegan Drink after work? Monthly mixer spreads across the nation and beyond

Vegan Drinks started in New York City as a monthly mixer for people attracted to the meat-free, animal-friendly lifestyle.

“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,” according to their website.

You don’t have to be a strict vegan to attend, just a person who is interested in vegetarianism, concerned about animal welfare issues or simply looking for happy hour fun.

Since its start in 2008, Vegan Drinks events have spread to major cities across North America and abroad, reaching as far as Sydney, Australia.
