Go Vegan with Animal Acres in Long Beach Tomorrow
I didn't know that International Vegetarian Day falls on Oct. 9--I didn't even know there was an International Vegetarian Day (is there an International Carnivore Day?). To celebrate this day, Animal Acres--the Los Angeles-area farm that saved a piggy I bought from the cleaver--will hold a fundraiser at Cal State Long Beach tomorrow. Tickets are $35 presale, $45 at the door, but catering comes from a lot of local vegan eateries in the Long Beach area and you get to support a cool organization. Starts at 7 p.m. at the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at Long Beach St., 1250 Bellflower Blvd., Long Beach. More info, call (562) 439-1736.
And now, one of the great arguments against animal cruelty: Babe!
