On Wednesday, NBA champ John Salley will host PETA's 23rd annual Congressional Veggie Dog Lunch — the group’s answer to the meat industry’s hot dog luncheon.

PETA and Salley will dish up free Beyond Sausages from Beyond Meat — which were named one of the Best Inventions of 2018 by TIME magazine — and give away miniature basketballs with a “Go Vegan!” message. Score!

When: Wednesday, July 17, 12 noon sharp

Where: Outside the Rayburn House Office Building (beside the main entrance), 45 Independence Ave. S.W. (between S. Capitol Street S.E. and First Street S.W.), Washington, D.C.

“Whether you’re looking to assist animals or experience a health rebound, veggie dogs can be your MVP,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA is proud to team up with superstar and super vegan John Salley to champion pig-friendly and heart-healthy fare at our Congressional Veggie Dog Lunch.”

PETA asks everyone to turn up their snout at meaty hot dogs — which can be concocted from pigs’ lips, spleens, intestines, stomachs, and anuses. Meanwhile, vegan hot dogs are Earth-friendly, healthier, and animal-friendly. Vegans have a smaller carbon footprint and a reduced risk of suffering from heart attacks, diabetes, obesity, cancer, and strokes than meat-eaters do — and they each spare nearly 200 animals a year a miserable life and terrifying death.
