I'm on the Boroondara B'Arts mailing list and this was listed amongst the July events:

Ethics Cafe: Is Speciesism Justified?

Readings Hawthorn: 701 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn, Victoria, 3122
Free monthly event.
Enquiries - 9819 1917


I've never heard of the "Ethics Café" before, and a Google search didn't turn anything up, so I don't know what format this will be in? But I thought some people may be interested.

Also a heads-up about the 2008 Janine Haines Lecture, by Peter Singer ("Animal Welfare and Environmental Ethics: Parallels and Divergences"), in case you hadn't already read about it on veganpeople or elsewhere.

Edit: And I've just realised that I missed this event that was on yesterday afternoon (as part of the State of Design festival):

Afternoon Tea 17th Thursday
AFTERNOON TEA: 3.00-5.00

Professor Peter Singer (contemporary philosopher, author and professor of bioethics)

The Ethics of What We Eat: Nothing affects the surface of the earth, and the sentient beings living on it, more than the way we produce our food. This session explores the ethical issues raised by our food choices.

Oh well, it was a bit pricey anyway, and hey I don't want PS to think I'm y'know, stalking him or nothin' ;)

9th-Jun-2008 04:03 pm - Best restaurant?
Hi there,
I thought I would start some conversation by asking about your favourite Melbourne veg restaurant..

i'll start the ball rolling:

Mine, without a doubt is VegieHut in Box hill, I go there for the incredibly greasy fried Kuey Teuw (spelling?) and mock roast duck, both dishes are incredibly bad for you, but so tasty!  Although recently i'm back at uni so i'm rather poor... =(
They know me by name and as soon as I walk in they start putting my order in ahha.

21st-May-2008 09:09 am - Chicken congress in Australia
Superman & Louis Lane
Hey guys.

There'll be a chicken/poultry congress happening up in Brisbane from the 1st - 4th of July. Protests will/have/are being organized for it.

If anyone is interested in attending, there will be many people willing to offer a lift if you don't live around Brisbane (i.e Melbourne or Sydney). Get in touch with your local Animal Lib or Animals Australia office and ask about it.

Or, feel free to message me over LJ and ask for details. I'll get back to you asap.

x-posted around. Sorry for the spammage.
21st-Apr-2008 11:46 pm - shoes!
does anyone know exactly where I can find black synthetic school shoes? As cheap as possible, and less than $50, I've already tried Kmart and Target etc.
Good support and grip a plus.
Looking for vegan black shoes that aren't from VeganWares (as cool as they are, wayyy off my budget).
13th-Apr-2008 01:05 am - Vegan cheese slices in Melbourne
Simple question - where in Melbourne would I buy vegan cheese slices?

Extra points if they melt well.

Also, any reviews of any of these?
hi folks

i stupidly ordered the wrong size belt from pangea vegan products so now i have a very lovely size 28 black square studded belt like this:


it only arrived today, and since it is the wrong size has not been worn.

the belt cost $29.00 and the postage cost $33.00 (usa to australia) so im wondering if anyone wants to buy it for $40 ONO.

im in melbourne but ill pay for postage to send it anywhere in australia.

and my apologies if posts like this arent allowed?

cheers and thanks,

23rd-Jan-2008 12:22 am - Female housemate wanted (Camberwell)
Anyone in Melbourne, Australia looking for somewhere to live, or know anyone who is?

Come the second week of Feb, we'll have a spare room. It's big and bright, and the house is located close to public transport in leafy Camberwell. You'll be sharing with me (Jo, 23, vegan, student) and Jess (19, junkivore, works in admin) and Escher (small, shy, black and white, favourite word seems to be "meow"). We want someone who is happy, sociable and mature.

The rent is $115 per week (not including bills), plus bond.

Cross posted, because I can never decide which of these Melb/Aus veg communities to post to!
26th-Nov-2007 11:41 pm - VNV Christmas party / trivia night
Is anyone going to this?

I don't know anyone who's going, and it is arranged in "tables", but apparently the odd loner is welcomed, and I figure it's a good thing to be social.

Is anyone here planning on going? Or can you give me reasons why I should/n't go? Will it be all daggy old people?

From the linked web page:

Saturday, 1 December

Trivia night combined with the annual Christmas party. A night of fun, trivia, games, good food and good company.

3 course meal catered by Soulveg. BYO drinks and alcohol, there will also be wine by donation available.

We will also have a raffle with a range of fantastic prizes and a number of 'silent auctions' where bidders write down their bids.
There will be the usual fun games during intervals, bawdy rivalry between competing tables, and good natured heckling of presenters.

The first 20 people to sign up for membership on the night will not only receive their member cards entitling them to these dicounts but will also receive a free gift bag full of goodies!

Tables will again consist of ten people. If you'd like to come along but don't have a table, then book anyway, we'll fit you in.
