Last year was the first one! I know some people who went to it and it sounded pretty cool. It's the day after my graduation so I don't know if I'll get there this year.
I went to this last year...it wasn't as big as I thought it would be BUT it was the first year, so I suspect it should be bigger this year. They gave a lot of free samples or magazines, some canvas bags and snacks above this you get to represent your veg*n peps...if you're going to be in the NYC during this time, def participate, the extra support is always appreciated :)
Anyone planning to go to the parade
If I am in the city I will be there.
The North Jersey vegan meetup.com group is having a get together before the parade.
here is the link for all who may be interested.
I might be going to this after all!! My sister is going to NYC after my graduation tomorrow and I said I wanted to go too because of the veggie pride parade so she said I should come and she has a free hotel room I can stay in with her! I hope this works out! :>
oh I didn't end up going...
Did you dress up? They were giving away some cool prizes it seemed.
How did your move go?
I went!! I had a good time and it was nice to see so many other veg ppl!! I hung around Union Square for a bit grabbing some of the free info so i could give it to people who are always asking me to help them to transition to veg eating!!!
I did expect a little more as far as vendors ... but hey, it's only the 2nd year ... it's catch on!
And btw, i got a piece of the brown rice cake with choco frosting ... mmm it was good ... and of course the vegan pizza ..... lmfao oh, and I grabbed a raw food sports bar and coconut water! BUT i did buy a cookbook as well! :)
My girlfriend came with who has recently been trying to eat ovo-lacto vegetarian and after some of the info she recieved ... umm ... it's looking like we have a new vegan in the veg pool!
Vegans for the win! lmao
... I actually am moving to NYC ...
Ohh .... Welcome!! ...
Yeah, It's never hard to get a good dish here EVEN at non-veg restaurants ... and shopping is always a breeze .... i live by the worlds worst Key Foods (grocery store) and i can still buy pretty much everything ... ............. try shopping in the Asian markets ... they speak NOT A WORD of english but they make fresh tofu daily and sell it on the street ..... ugh .... it's good and like $1 for 2 HUGE pieces!! 3 to 4 times the size of the blocks you buy in the grocery store and you get one of those med. sized plastic containers of silken tofu for like 90 cents !! :) lol. .. sorry i get very excited about that! ahhaha
