As we announced last month, we’re sponsoring a celebration of Morrissey’s birthday May 22 with At Last I Am Born, a show at Brooklyn’s Bell House with New York’s premiere tribute to The Smiths + Morrissey, The Sons & Heirs.

In honor of Morrissey’s outspoken vegetarianism + stances on animal rights issues, we at raven + crow studio are helping to make the whole affair as animal-friendly as possible. And we’re getting some help from our friends on that front.

We’ll talk more about the food options for the night in the coming weeks, but, first, we want to announce Moz’s Birthday Gifts—three weeks of animal-friendly giveaways from event sponsors. Starting this week and following suit in the next two weeks before the show, we’ll announce a collection of gifts from vegan and/or animal-friendly establishments each Monday. A winner will then be randomly chosen from the list of pre-sale ticket buyers and announced on the following Friday, starting this Friday, May 3.

All you need to do is buy a ticket to the show. Thinking of going? May as well buy your ticket now and have the chance to win some awesome stuff. This week’s giveaway includes:
• A $50 gift card to NYC’s very own MooShoes—who offers the largest variety of animal-friendly shoes and accessories in the world—and one of their hot-off-the-presses new shopping totes (designed by *ahem* us);
Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar—the stellar cookbook by Isa Chandra Moskowitz + Terry Hope Romero that includes 100 dairy-free cookie recipes and is signed by Isa;
• The premiere issue of Laika Magazine—the brand new vegan lifestyle magazine;
• And a gift certificate for a dinner box from Monk’s Meats—New York’s seitan specialists—that’ll include a delectable main dish + sides (we’ll have pics soon).

The earlier you buy your ticket, the better—everyone who already has a ticket is automatically included in the drawing and, if you don’t win this week, you might next week or the week after. So why wait? WHY‽

Buy your tickets now. And we’ll see you there.

Stay tuned to this space Friday to find out who this week’s winner is and we’ll let you know what we’re giving away next week on Monday. Best of luck, Reader!
