This Week in NJ

Join your pals from V Marks the Shop and Queen & Rook Game Cafe for a fun-filled night of quirky themed trivia with a VEGAN twist to support a great cause! Each month, they will feature a trivia theme with a sprinkle of knowledge potpourri and vegan goodness! There will be a $7 fee to play and the fee and other proceeds will go to benefit the Children's Crisis Treatment Center.

Plant Based Health Coach Cecilia Basbus will hold a seitan cooking class this Friday in NYC. Seitan or "wheat meat" is a vegan substitute for meat. Its chewy, dense texture makes it ideal for salads, sandwiches and more. Learn how to make it yourself and the best ways to cook with it to make you love it. There will be some getting dirty with flour, kneading of dough and boiling and tasting. Tickets are limited and can be purchased here.

Stop SeaQuest Woodbridge will hold another peaceful protest at the Woodbridge Mall this Saturday. More information can be found here.

Take a break from the winter blues and cozy up next to your favorite vegan. Join Marley Meadows Sanctuary for their second annual Winter Break at Eclipse Brewing. Enjoy the finest drinks, the warmest company, delicious vegan eats, and help raise money for animals who really need your help. There will be a ton of auction items, 50/50 raffle, and a chance to enter in to win a pot of loot when you guess the gender of Quinn's cria (baby llama). A $10 donation to reserve your spot is recommended beforehand as space is limited

Finally, the Jersey Shore chapter of Food Not Bombs will be feeding those in need at the Asbury Park Train Station between 3:00 and 4:00. If you want to donate something, contact them via their Facebook page or by emailing them at The Jersey City chapter meets at the Journal Square plaza at noon every Sunday.
