Vegans in Baltimore promote 'cruelty free' diet
Do we eat too much food without thinking about where it comes from?
The animal rights group Compassion Over Killing is trying to draw some attention to the issue and, at the same time, bring more vegan offerings to Baltimore. It's got some things planned:
COK is joining with Emily's Cafe and Deserts, at 4901 Springarden Dr. in north Baltimore, this Sunday from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. in a benefit and free movie event. A portion of your breakfast or lunch bill will be donated to the group's efforts. The movie is Chicken Run.
Beforehand, from 10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. COK is also hosting a "Dunkin' Cruelty Feed-In." They will ask Dunkin' Donuts at 25 Light Street to stop using milk and egg products. RSVP for this at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-891-2458.
Also, the group is working with other restaurants to up the number of vegan menu offering. One such place is Pizzazz Tuscan Grille, at 711 Eastern Ave. inside the Pier Five hotel. It's expanded its menu and is hosting an event on April 9 from 7 p.m.-10 p.m. to show it off and raise money for COK's efforts. The restaurant is offering 20 percent of your bill -- plus all the tips earned by our a COK bartender. Drink specials will include $5 martinis and two-for-one drinks.
Anyone been to these place? Enjoyed vegan offerings? Think Baltimore has good vegan, or vegetarian, options?
