Vegan Things to Do in LA This Weekend: November 23-25
We search the web for the best vegan things to do in the city, so you don’t have to. Here’s what’s happening this weekend.

VegOut Los Angeles is teaming up with LA vegan restaurants and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to host a vegan food drive for the month of November.
