It’s not often I get to write about a music venue—I leave that to our pals over at Ticket—so I’m jumping at the opportunity.
Philly’s World Cafe Live is hosting its first-ever, 100-percent-meat-free meal next month, where even the beer is vegan.
The Vegan Beer Dinner, to take place on Monday, April 28th, will include four courses (menu TBA) and five beers, along with live music from jazz singer Sara Street. From the event's website:
"All food items will be 100% vegan, and all beers will be styles made without animal product, and coming from breweries who do not use any animal products in their fining process(no isinglass, gelatin, bone char, etc). Confirmed beers include: Southern Tier Gemini, Founders Imperial Stout and Lancaster Hop Buggy."
Last year Philly Beer Scene hosted Band of Brewers with six local breweries putting together bands to rock World Cafe Live in a battle-of-the-bands type of event. And this year it promises to be even bigger.
Curt Decker of Nodding Head Brewery will serve as emcee and each band will have the opportunity to perform three songs on stage. A panel of celebrity judges will pick a winner. The audience will also get to choose a fan favorite. A part of proceeds will go to the charity of choice of the winning band.
Each brewery will be also be represented by at least one of their draft beers.
