Cheese and wine party, vegan style

Illustration by SARAH HANSEL

Apparently, the first weekend of June is a popular one for vegan events. First, there’s the Nevada City Vegan Food + Wine Festival Fundraiser Soiree on Friday, June 2, in Nevada City. It’s hosted by Miyoko’s Kitchen and Clavey Vineyards & Winery. (Translation: it’s a vegan cheese-and-wine party!) Tickets are $25 and limited to 40 people, so get them while you can at www.brownpaper
. The next event shouldn’t be a big surprise: It’s the Nevada City Vegan Food + Wine Festival. This free event on Saturday, June 3, is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Odd Fellows Lodge at 212 Spring Street and puts a spotlight on the vegan offerings in Nevada City. Expect food (more Mikoyo’s!); speakers and that adorable, creative California mining-town vibe. See
WineFestival for more info. There are two more vegan-friendly events happening that weekend, so tune in to next week’s V Word for the lowdown.
