This day is phenomenal; you really need to see it to believe it.
One year, we handily gave away over 4 cartons of
101 Reasons Why I'm a Vegetarian, the pamphlet, in 3 hours.

Saturday, April 22, 2006

11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
VivaVegie tabling, outreach, video marathon
Silk Road Place
30 Mott Street, China Town,
part of a giant street fair: Taste of China Town
VivaVegie will share a table with Tien Garden (the restaurant),
engaging in vegetarian street outreach in New York City's China Town.
Just inside, on a giant screen, will be a marathon of vegetarian
videos - borrowed from VivaVegie's Vegetarian Center of NYC - each
with a vegetarian/environmental theme.
Don't miss this one. Volunteers needed.
Volunteers call 212-966-2060
This will prove to be a great event, and perhaps an annual one at that.
