Join FGV for a bubbly and cake party
London. You are not just getting a few more vegan establishments opening lately.
You are being completely OVERRUN by some of the best vegan food outlets on the planet.
My friend Vanessa Almeida is opening her gorgeous vegan café in Shoreditch following on from years of running pop ups and residencies around the capital.
The lease is signed on the shop and I’m sitting inside right now as people paint furiously around me. It’s so thrilling to see Vanessa’s hard work and dedication to good vegan food finally paying off.
I’m working with Vanessa to raise some funds to ensure her Essential Vegan Café gets off to the best start possible. We are running a fundraising campaign to help pay for equipment costs, legal fees, paint, stock, furniture, and the countless expenses associated with opening a world class café in one of the most expensive cities on the planet.
If you think you have an idea of how expensive it is to open a business in London, I’d hazard a guess that your figure would be nowhere close to the reality.
I am trying to help Vanessa raise £30,000 to safeguard her business beyond opening. Most of the money is coming from Vanessa and her husband Neni, but they need a little bit of help from team vegan.
Essential Vegan Café is set in a stunning space just off Shoreditch High Street and it is the perfect location to showcase Vanessa’s Brazilian inspired menu that features seitan burgers, cheese bread and artisan coffee.
Of course there are a whole bunch of rewards on offer if you are able to support Vanessa’s campaign, but the one reward I’m most interested in telling you about today is the opening night party hosted by me!
If you donate £40 to the Essential Vegan Café fundraising campaign you can choose a ticket to the opening night party on Saturday September 30, 2017.
There are three separate sessions to join:
- 6:00pm until 7:30pm
- 7:30pm until 9:00pm
- 9:00pm until 10:30pm
The ticket includes entry to the party where you will enjoy:
- Free vegan bubbly to drink
- A slice of cake (you get to choose from a selection!)
- An Essential Vegan tote bag
- Sneak preview of the café’s new menu before anyone else in London
- 10% off your bill if you want to order food at the party
This is a very special event to help support a very special person. You will not meet anyone on the vegan scene who has worked as hard as Vanessa.
Join me for a party, eat some cake, drink some bubbles AND support an independent vegan business. It is going to be the MOST FUN.
