WHAT: Vegan Drinks Rome
WHERE: The Beehive Hotel & Cafe, via Marghera, 8
Rome, Italy (map)
WHEN: October 18, 2009, 6 - 10 pm
The Beehive is introducing Vegan Drinks Rome, the first Vegan Drinks event outside of the U.S.! Vegan Drinks (http://www.vegandrinks.org) is a monthly social networking event for people interested in sharing veganism and advocating for animal rights. Vegan Drinks' mission is to bring together people from all walks of life to build a stronger community and promote the sharing of resources. Anyone can come – the only thing required is an interest in veganism and animal rights, as well as a desire to have a good time.
I will be there selling exquisite, fairly traded, hand-crafted scarves, bags, and jewelry from India, as well as black and white photographs of Indian street dogs. All proceeds from this sale will be donated to animal welfare organizations in India and Italy.
Catia Briganti - an artist with artwork that is part of The Beehive's permanent collection - will be holding a finissage of her recent exhibit. The artwork currently on display is Catia's "Progetto Totem." Catia's handmade totems are an explosion of colors and shapes - one different from the other. They are made with recycled wood - full of history and assembled in what could be called a contemporary mosaic.
A selection of mixed drinks, wine and beer will be served - appetizers from the cafe are included in the drink price:
Wine & Beer: €3
