Being a vegan has never been easier. Vegan convenience foods are now a billion-dollar industry. Vegan options at restaurants across the country are growing. We now have vegan department stores (online), vegan specialty stores, vegan items of every variety, and even vegan stores of, ahem, a personal nature. America’s favorite pastime has also gotten in on it. No, not that. Get your mind out of the gutter. We meant America’s national pastime. At AT&T Park in San Francisco, home of the world champion San Francisco Giants, veganism has gone to the dogs… hot dogs that is.
And our recent visit to the ballpark was a feast both on and off the field. It was a cool, clear night, the fog drifting far off on the Bay which we could clearly see from our nosebleed-level seats. AT&T Park may just be the most beautiful ball park with the most stunning views. But what really stole the show was not the view, nor even the fact that the Giants won in extra innings. It was that we won off the field with a delicious meal of veggie dogs, fries, and soda pop. And the guy next to us even offered us (which we gladly accepted) our fave lollipops from Yummy Earth.
Thankfully, the world champion Giants (did we mention we were world champions?) aren’t the only team to cater to vegans. Here’s your guide to other veg-friendly ball parks: www.soyhappy.org/venue.htm.
