Last night, my boyfriend’s mom invited us to dinner for boyfriend’s brother’s birthday.
At the Texas Steakhouse.
We’re talking about Buffalo heads hanging from the walls, and stuffed quail and skunks around the tables.
I didn’t say anything, because I try really hard to get along with his family.
I figured “hey, they’re bound to have something I can eat.”
My options were LITERALLY lettuce and tomatoes… and applesauce.
The lettuce was wilted, the tomatoes were squishy, and I don’t like applesauce so I didn’t get any.
I can honestly say, I’ve never been to such a non-vegan-friendly restaurant. Granted, it is a STEAKHOUSE but still… They have to figure at SOME point a vegan or vegetarian is going to get dragged along with their family.
I actually think I’m going to write them a letter about how uncomfortable and disappointing the experience was.
@hakred – I KNOW RIGHT? If someone had just invited me to go, I would have gracefully declined. The only reason I went was because it was my boyfriend’s brothers birthday. Plus, I agreed to go before I knew where we were going -.- His sister seemed to think we should have gone somewhere else just to make me more comfortable, but the night wasn’t about me. It was definitely a suck it up situation lol.
As soon as we got home, I made vegan rib patties and was very content haha.
OH MY GOD! I COMPLETELY OVERLOOKED THE BAKED POTATO! -.- I totally would have gotten that. Still a wilted salad, a baked potato, and some applesauce being the only options at this one isn’t right. There are plenty of vegan things they could offer that omnivores eat all the time, you know? Things that would appeal to both crowds, so they don’t feel like they’re adding things just to make the vegans happy.
Or at least make things without butter with the option of adding butter -.-
@veganistdestrox thats really cool that they offer that 😀 are you in area where veg*nism is more widely accepted?
