Meatless Draw & Bingo Jamboree to Shake Up British Ex-Serviceman’s Legion

On Thursday, March 22nd the British Ex-Serviceman’s Legion is hosting a very unconventional, very vegetarian-friendly spin on the familiar Meat Draw theme that sounds like a blast, regardless of your dietary convictions. “Don’t Have a Cow Man: A Soy-tacular Meat Draw & Bingo Jamboree” is an evening that includes an extraordinary fancy-faux-meat raffle, plus two requisite, ages-old Legion pastimes: bingo and karaoke.

Now for the important part: the meatless foods up for grabs! We’re not talking about bland tofu in various states of solidity here. If you’re unacquainted with the enormous advances in meatless substitutes, let me reassure you that the stuff of this Draw is pure deliciousness. Organizers have solicited donations from local veggie suppliers (PlantBase, Richmond’s Happy Veggie World, and Chinatown’s newish addition,Vegan Supply) and from around Canada (Victoria’s Very Good Butchers and our veggie-meat purveying friends out east, Yam Chops, of Toronto).

Tickets are available for $10 in advance either here or at the door, with all proceeds going to support two animal-loving charities. NB. If your budget is a little too squeezed but you still want to show your support then don’t fret — no one will be shooed away from this shindig!
