Longtime readers of this blog know that I pretty much never miss a party at MooShoes, a vegan shoe shop on the Lower East Side. This past Friday was no exception, as I trotted down to the launch party for Our Hen House, a nonprofit working to improve the treatment of animals. This party was particularly well-attended, and I saw a lot of familiar faces from other vegan events. Small but vocal community we are!

Now, the highlights in pics!

The crowd perusing the very desirable raffle prizes

Lovely wines provided by Frey Vineyards, an organic winery. The rosé was particularly good, I must say.

 I’m not much of a chocolate person, but I do appreciate the concept behind Rescue Chocolate, which donates all net profits to animal rescue groups.

 My fave munchable of the evening: “faux gras,” a walnut lentil pate that was mad good. Provided by the chef and caterer The Regal Vegan.

Always, always good: Sweet & Sara s’mores. (And always good when I don’t have to pay for them—you can get their vegan marshmallow treats at Whole Foods but they are a smidge pricy.)

 The ladies behind Our Hen House, Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan.

Victoria Moran, a very sprightly raw vegan speaker and author of The Love-Powered Diet.

 Jasmin Singer’s mother, talking about being in a family of vegetarians. Cute!

Well, that’s it. I had a great time and look forward to the next time I can stop by MooShoes, get free food, and mingle with all you lovely vegan folk!
