Join Plants & Animals Denver
, a vegan advocacy group, for Chomp, a pop-up vegan dinner that starts at 7 p.m. tonight at the Horse Barn
, 1031 33rd Street. In keeping with that setting -- an old stable that's been converted to a work space for non-profits and other do-good organizations -- the dinner will have a Western theme. And vegan fare, of course. "Why vegan?" asks the group's website
. "Because the food is so good. Because it is the right thing to do. Because it is easy. Because it is empowering. We all have our reasons. Give it a try and to find your own!"

The dinner, which is prepared by volunteers, is free, but an $8 to $10 donation is appreciated, and diners should bring their own set-ups.
The group hosts similar dinners on the first Wednesday of every month for more information and reservations, visit the Plants & Animals website.
