Prabhat Gautam, owner of Positive Television and a local vegan gadfly (also, a former LAist contributor), is a very energetic guy. This month, he set out to accomplish the goal of 30 straight days of vegan events. "A lot of people said it could never be done, but lots of people stepped up," he wrote in an e-mail. And so it began last Tuesday night at SunPower Natural Cafe and continue throughout September.

Upcoming events include a healthy chocolate enthusiasts (what?!) meetup in Irvine, vegan soft serve ice cream social at Millions of Milkshakes in West Hollywood, a Bruins for Animals Party/Vegan Potluck (this event is tonight), a vegan happy hour, a veggie hikers group, a local food eat potluck at Milagro Allegro Community Garden in Highland Park and a vegan stand up comedy show with Leo Flowers (dude is funny as hell), among many other activities.

Gautam also teases in his e-mail about a grocery store he's working on. "This [event] is the start of the L.A. vegan world changing forever and next up is an all vegan grocery store that I'm starting with some close friends," he writes. "L.A. will undoubtedly become the vegan destination of the world, if it isn't already."
