Los Angeles VegWeek 2010!
Compassion Over Killing is launching Los Angeles VegWeek tomorrow, July 11, with a kick-off party! There will be incredible food provided by Clara's Cakes (Clara is one of my favorite people in the world), Rawsheed's Dinner Club, Chef Tigre, Sun Power Natural Cafe, Veggie Grill, and Perfected Foods. The special guests will include Assemblymembers Pedro Nava and Ted Lieu, celebrity vegan chef Chloe Coscarelli, who recently won an episode of Food Network's Cupcake Wars, and Compassion Over Killing's Executive Director, Erica Meier.
In honor of Los Angeles VegWeek, Assemblymembers Nava and Lieu, as well as Congressman Brad Sherman, have taken a vow of vegetarianism for the entire week! Thank you, gentlemen, for setting an excellent example!
