WME Hosts the First Plant-Based Pre-Oscars Party
Hollywood’s vegan takeover continues with the first plant-based pre-Oscars party hosted by WME! WME, also known as Endeavor, is a Beverly Hills-based media and entertainment agency that represents some of the most high-profile actors, including every movie-goers favorite vegan, Joaquin Phoenix! WME’s pre-Oscars party follows the reduced carbon footprints of other award ceremonies such as the most recent Screen Actor’s Guild, Golden Globes, and Critics Choice Awards, by serving a plant-based menu by Nic’s On Beverly!
Whether you’re happy with this year's Oscar nominations or not, this is something to celebrate for the vegan world! Why? This invite-only shindig will feed the mouths of the most prestigious actors, directors, producers, and more! Who knows? This might just be the mouthwatering menu that converts Martin Scorsese, Charlize Theron, Jonathan Pryce, or Quentin Tarantino to veganism!
The veggieful menu presents all-vegan appetizers, mains, and desserts by one of the hottest and trendiest plant-based restaurants, Nic’s On Beverly! Falafel Sliders, Avocado Tacos, and the Chinois on Beverly Salad are just a few flavor-bursting favorites that might make a star appearance at the party! The Messy Table joins forces with Nic’s to stunt on the A-list attendees with a stellar snack spread! Want in on the deliciousness? If you didn’t get an invite to the bash, host a party of your own and make a reservation at Nic’s with your friends so you can eat like Hollywood royalty! Pro-tip: take part in their $39 dineL.A. dinner menu until January 31st for three courses of culinary bliss––it’s a steal!
