Isn't being Vegan the Best?
Isn't being Vegan in Portland the BEST EVER?!?
I'm entirely serious today.
The second annual Vegan Prom at Report Lounge was spectacular, minus an awful fur incident. Just gross. I'm sorry that some folks left, and devastated that a fur coat showed up, and that it may have been intentional.
That's all I'm comfortable saying here.
Tasty vegan snacks! Hell yeah, hummus is party food! In Living Color on the big screen!
A ridiculous number of prizes!
Just look at this list of donations/gift certificates:
Yarp?!, Whiffies, Sweet Masterpiece Chocolate & Coffee Bar, It's a Beautiful Pizza, Laughing Planet, Food Fight! Grocery, Herbivore Clothing, Old Wives Tale, Follow Your Heart, Sjaacks Chocolate, Sweet & Sara Marshmallows, Turtle Mountain, Black Sheep Bakery, Go Max Go Candy Bars (Portland based!) Back to Eden Baking Co. - storefront opening soon! with Chicago Soy Dairy Temptation soft serve! and Sweetpea Baking Co. for the delicious cookies!
Super thanks to our TWO vegan DJs - John Vincent and Brendan!
Yeah, vegan community!!
Thank you everyone for donating! And attending!!!!! Try Vegan Week 2009 had a fabulous turn out and Deanna and I had a blast organizing & then attending the Prom to top it all off!
The entire Try Vegan staff deserves applause!
Extra special thanks to Maeve,
for helping out so much, coming up with the theme and wearing a really sweet dress!
First prize went to Simon, Second to Angela, pictured below! They rule.
Dancing happening in moments...
More awesome vegans!
Maeve and Caitlin, sassy and grunge!
Our custom drinks for the evening were the non-alcoholic Carlton: a refreshing fruity lemonade, the Ninja Turtle: a vivacious non-alocholic mojito, the Vanilla Ice: vanilla stoli + orange + soda to get you on the dance floor! and the Blossom: a tropical vodka drink that put a smile on your face, just like Miyam!
There were door prizes galore, two dance off winners (first picture!) with awards for Phat Moves! and Dope Moves!, Best Dressed going to Nick as Waldo and Jack - for looking freaking tight! and our Prom King and Queen were Aaron and Michelle!
Already thinking of a theme for next year.............and making plans for Portland's first Vegan Iron Chef this winter!
