    dinner plans tonight? head over to the newest veggie grill location by the fairfax farmers market and fill up for a good cause.

    from 5pm – 10pm on thursday august 4th (that’s today!), all you gotta do is mention bark avenue foundation when you order, and 50% of the proceeds from your meal will be donated to them. if you haven’t heard of bark avenue, they’re a local animal shelter and rescue/advocacy group committed to reducing companion animal overpopulation through spay/neuter, humane education, rescue, re-homing, and community outreach. they support lots of animal shelters in the area (including fur baby rescue), and proceeds from tonight will go directly to surgeries and expenses to care for homeless animals. official flyer after the jump…

    hey los angeles, if you like to help animals and enjoy tasty food (who doesn’t?!?!), then you gotta hit up the 8000 sunset veggie grill location on the evening of THURSDAY JULY 22nd, and let them know you are dining to support ARME.

    from 5pm-11pm on 07/22/10 when you purchase food or beverages (take-out as well!) and mention ARME, veggie grill will donate 50% of your purchase to the organization! in case you haven’t heard of ARME, they are an incredible non-profit organization that strives to end the suffering of animals through rescue and education. they not only do hands-on rescue, but have made award-winning animal rights documentaries such as skin trade and behind the mask. this organization has already made an enormous difference for animals, but they’ve spent a huge amount of money on outreach and film production and need our help. they even have a new documentary in the works, so let’s MAKE IT HAPPEN.

    we all know veggie grill as one of the best places in town to get hearty vegan grub (i HIGHLY suggest the new daiya cheese nachos and el dorado!), and now you can help animals even more just by enjoying their delicious food…with no extra cost to you. go to veggie grill thursday night and mention ARME. there is honestly no easier way to help animals just by eating a tasty dinner.

    here is the flyer. check it out, but you only need to MENTION ARME for the discount to count.

    huge props to veggie grill sunset for making this happen. we love you, and all the new menu items ROCK…even though you took away the caesar salad. :/

    so i will see you all there, right?!
