Meat Free Week in DC

Meat Free Week in DC

Meat Week is still sating Washington’s carnivores, but tomorrow is the start of DC Meat Free Week. The event was cooked up by DC Vegans, and details (hours, reservations, etc.) are here.  Participating venues have sprouted all around the metro area; there’s probably one near you:

Saturday, February 6: Great Sage , Clarksville, MD

Sunday, February 7: My Little Bistro, 353 Cedar Street NW, DC

Monday, February 8: The Mansion on O Street, 2020 O St., NW

Tuesday, February 9: Sticky Fingers Bakery, 1370 Park Road NW, DC

Wednesday, February 10: Busboys & Poets, all three locations

Thursday, February 11: The Source, 575 Pennsylvania Avenue  NW, DC

Friday, February 12: Restaurant Nora, 2132 Florida Ave., NW

These aren’t garden variety restaurants, and several are introducing new vegan menus for the occasion.  There are bake sales benefitting Haitian relief efforts, too.

Don’t be a couch potato. Celebrate DC Meat Free Week.

    A whole week without meat sounds like a pretty bad week to me!

    Actually, after a great South Indian meal, we usually forget that it was meatless. And many omnivores are following the lead of our pal Mark Bittman and becoming “Lessmeatarian.”

    I don’t think you will ever see me digging into a “South Indian” meal, so I will stick to my occasional piece of meat.

  4. Amanda Says:

    Wow, Lawrence, you are really missing out if we will never see you digging into a South indian meal! South Indian food along with most ethnic foods are often vegetarian by nature as most cultures would see a week or even a month of no meat as normal. I think “meatless” might sound “boring” or imply being deprived of something to someone eating it every day if not more, but my definition of deprivation is limiting myself to meals that only include meat.
