Movember Kicks Off, Veganism Spreads, and Other Community Events this Week
By Nov 1, 2017 Community


It’s my favorite time of year and not because I like to watch the leaves change from green to varying shades of orange—I just go weak in the knees for a good mustache. The Movember Shave-Off is at the Caxton tonight, making sure your lip ferret is on fleek for a cause. Later this week there'll be talks from Vegans of Shanghai, Young China Watchers, and Learning2 for you teachers. There's also Ladyfest's Dating Monologues to look forward to and the last IPWS mentor walk of the season.
