Vegan in Vegas?
The article states that a Harris Interactive survey taken last year found that 3.4 percent of Americans were vegetarian, while 0.8 percent said they were vegan. Although those are tiny numbers it is obviously a huge deal to have mega-mogul Steve Wynn add veganism to his successful hotels. It's significant and welcomed. One thing that I have learned from my vegan quest was that even though there are a ton of options, as far as restaurants go, in NYC, there are virtually no options for either vegan, or healthy meals at places like Yankee Stadium, and the old Giants Stadium. So, I think its great that a place like Vegas, which does not really scream healthy living, is offering a high-end vegetarian/vegan alternative.
Maybe I should open up my own shop!
