Happy Vegan Day! Excited for today’s meat-free holiday but don’t know to celebrate? Well the veggie lovers at Busboys & Poets have got you covered. At the 14th St. & V St. 5th & K St. location tonight at 6:30pm, they will be hosting a Vegan Day event featuring speakers who know their stuff when it comes to veganism. The first half of the program will be focused on stories of how their panelists have lived meat free, while the second half will be a Q&A designed to answer all the questions you may have about going vegan, staying vegan and enjoying being vegan.

As a bit more incentive, the first 75 people in the door will get a free goodie bag filled with all the snacks and information your vegan heart desires, includng treats from Stickey Fingers and Divine Chocolates. And come hungry, Busboys & Poets has an extensive vegan menu for you to munch on while you discuss the age-old seitan vs. tofu debate. (I’m a tofu girl myself.)

  2. Thanks for catching my mistake, Michael C., all this Vegan Day excitement is just too much for me!

  3. This whole Vegan thing is interesting to me!
    1. Will these Vegans take the metro? (The metro uses electricity with much of the coal to generate it coming from WV, where animals are killed and habitats destroyed in it’s mining)
    2. Did these Vegans use fabric softener (some manufacturer use animal fat to make this)
    3. Did they take the flu-vaccine (which uses fertilized chicken eggs in the cultivation process)
    4. Or How about the bugs/insects that will inadvertently be in you vegan dishes that you will not see?

    What people should be really worried about is “sustainability” not “veganism”. e.g., the Native American philosophy.

    I think veganism is a feel good thing kinda like NGOs, breast cancer walks, and secret Santas at the office!
