Hey SoCal vegans,

Just in case you didn't know (you probably do!), there are a couple of fun vegan events coming up:

1. L.A. Vegan Beer Fest. May 4. If you've never been, and you like craft beer and vegan food trucks, this is the event for you. :) Tony (from Mohawk Bend, Tony's Darts Away, and Golden Road fame), Quarrygirl, and Nic Adler (of the Roxy) put this on -- I think it's the 4th annual? I've been the last two years and it's awesome.

2. WorldFest. May 19. All vegan, very hippie, sometimes crazy speakers, but fun. Lots of booths, animal adoptions, great vegan food stands, etc. Easy to get to using the Orange Line.

Thanks. It's not a vegan event, but the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books is coming up on April 20-21.

I will be in L.A for that, so that's my Sunday sorted - thanks! Will you be going?

Some of my fave authors are going to be there, I wish I was coming a month earlier just for this event!

I will be going to WorldFest! I'll probably be there all day hanging out, and helping staff either the HSUS or Compassion Over Killing tables for a couple of hours.

Jaclyn Moriarty (Aussie author) and Elizabeth Wein (author of the amazing Code Name Verity). I hope you enjoy the festival, LFL!

I did. I was at the panel Elizabeth Wein was on, too, but I got there late and was only there for 15 minutes of that. I started Code Name Verity a while ago but had to put it down because of the interrogation scenes. My grandparents were Holocaust survivors so that is a difficult time period for me to read about. But I heard from many friends who loved the book and if she writes another YA set at a different time period I will read it.

Thanks.

I see tickets for the LA Vegan Beer Fest are sold out, but there's a mention of non-drinking tickets sold at the door. I wonder if that means those are still available?

The food vendors are listed at this link:

Never mind, all tickets are sold out. I'll have to try to go next year.

It's that time of year again. LA Vegan Beer and Food festival general admission tickets are still on sale, but unfortunately the non-drinking tickets are already gone! For those of you who do drink, tickets can be had here: http://www.ticketfly.com/event/479439

Along different lines, the LA Times Festival of Books passes go on sale tomorrow! This year, vegan cookbook authors / actresses Mayim Bialik and Alicia Silverstone will be there. As well as authors of many other wonderful books. More information can be found here: http://events.latimes.com/festivalofbooks/

I want to go to this SO BADLY. My partner and friends are craft beer crazy and they are always going to beer festivals.

Chances of them going to this one are about 0% though, unfortunately. Put vegan in front of something....its a no.

Wow, that sucks. Your partner won't even go with you, just the two of you? Can you trade going with him to somewhere he wants to go for him going with you to the Vegan Beer & Food Fest?

Well, he said he would go but he didn't seem very excited about it. He was like "well, I guess i can eat BEFORE I go..."

Welcome to my world dude.

Then he noticed Seabirds will be there, and he perked up a little. He does love their jackfruit tacos.

Wow, that's too bad. I guess I'm spoiled -- I converted my husband to veganism soon after we met. I'm glad Seabirds will be there. Are you going then? I would love to hear more about it if you do.
