Washington – PETA’s sexy vegan “milkmaids”—decked out in flirty skirts and body-hugging corsets—will descend on D.C.’s Capital Wine & Cider Fest to offer attendees the chance to complement their drinks with free samples of Daiya’s new dairy-free smoked Gouda cheese and tasty vegan pâté from Tartex. The delectable ladies, bearing signs reading, “Vegan: GOUDAnough to Eat!” will also serve up a reminder that going vegan is the best way to help animals and stay trim and fit.

Where:           Dock 5 at Union Market, 1309 5th St. NE, Washington

When:             Saturday, July 11, 12 p.m.

“Tasty vegan cheeses are the perfect cruelty-free accompaniment to fine wine,” says PETA Senior Director Colleen O’Brien. “PETA encourages people who are eager to keep a slim waistline and a clear conscience to go vegan.”

As PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—points out, in addition to being far less likely to suffer from killer diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes, every person who goes vegan saves the lives of more than 100 animals every year.
