Animal Rights Group To Protest Haven Gastropub's Foie Gras Dinner Tonight

Categories: News
Looks like diners at tonight's "Fight For Foie" event at Haven Gastropub will have company. The Animal Protection and Rescue League (APRL) plans to protest the multi-chef, multi-course foie gras dinner by displaying signs and videos of "the way ducks are force fed to make foie gras." To the right is an example of such imagery, posted on the group's Meetup page.  

Haven Gastropub is anticipating the protest, and therefore will not be seating customers on the patio. 

As Dave reported, July 1 is the day that foie gras becomes outlawed in California. Haven chef Greg Daniels and others are fighting for humane and ethical farming instead of an outright ban. APRL, on its Facebook page, called such attempts "last ditch efforts in a failing cause to keep cruelty on their menus." 

There may be a couple spots left for dinner if you want to watch the action unfold from inside the cozy restaurant. Check out all the details here, and call 714-221-0680 to make reservations.

Also, the above photo (which was taken from the APRL website) was not taken at *any* US Foie Gras farm. It's outrageous, untrue propaganda meant only to stir the emotions and forward their agenda, not to educate.


To be honest I dont really give a rats ass... 

I drive by veal crates everyday of my life coming in and out of my community, you know what I think?  Thats gonna be some tasty ass veal! Perhaps Chops... Perhaps Veal parm... Perhaps Saltimbocca.

Both protesters and California legislators really, REALLY need to read this article, because their outrage is completely unfounded... unless it's a generic anti-meat crusade (in which case, they should be honest about it)... 


Gah. Wish the foie industry had lobbyists as good as poultry. 


Nothing grosses me out more than Gluttony. Eat more vegetables and sustainable food products . Geez fat asses wake up !

Let's see if animal rights protesters get delicious livers when subjected to gavage.
