One of many reasons why vegetarians are awesome.....
We are cheap dates.
No matter where you go, the vegetarian items on the menu are going to be the least expensive. Meaning it is much easier to take a date who is veg out to the newest, hottest and most expensive restaurant in town. The price of your dinner will be pretty much dependent on what you eat. No need to worry what they order, because the one or two veg choices on the menu will be the least expensive hands down. If they're vegan, even better!! It is doubtful they will be able to have dessert at many places around town.
I'm definitely not saying that we like going to restaurants without good veg options, so don't go looking for veg dates solely because you are a cheapskate. If you want to date a veg you better consider that to get into our hearts, you need to do some research ahead of time. Ruby River or Ruth's Chris is not going to impress anyone and could be both the first and the last date on which you take us. If I was on the single scene and a date took me somewhere with either veal, foi grois, or worse yet, both on the menu, and my veg option was a salad......yeah....NO! You don't need to take us to a vegan restaurant on our first date, but for god's sake, do some research. We wouldn't scare the shit out of you and take you to Rawtopia our first night out, it's a slow gradual process.
You'd be surprised how many great local restaurants have some amazing veg options in this city...but that's for an entirely different post all together. This is merely a random thought.....
