PETA Recognizes….Ben’s Chili Bowl?

Ben's Chili Bowl is basically one giant ode to meat. It smells like meat. Meat on the grill is the first thing you see when you walk on the door. Hell, it's the home of the half-smoke. So it might seem a little strange that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals—whose motto contains the […]

Nationals Park Ranked Among the Best Ballparks for Vegetarians

Buy me some peanuts and cauliflower sandwiches? People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has named Nationals Park the No. 5 most vegetarian-friendly Major League ballpark in the country. Among the reasons cited in the decidedly unscientific ranking: the roasted cauliflower sandwich from Mike’s Isabella’s G, the vegan crab cake and vegan cheesesteak from […]

A PETA-Approved BLT

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has released a list of its top 10 vegan BLT sandwiches in the country, and D.C.'s own Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats makes the cut. The Columbia Heights vegan spot makes its "TLT" version with tempeh bacon, lettuce, tomato, and Vegenaise, instead of mayo. The $7.05 sandwich comes […]

Extra Stuffing

A deer is staring at my pulled pork sandwich. The beady black eyes peer down from a stuffed, mounted, and antlered head above the bar at the U Street NW barbecue joint American Ice Company. It’s part of the hip vintage-saloon look of the place, just like the rusted car battery display case repurposed as […]

Anthony Bourdain on Foie Gras

Anthony Bourdain has been a staunch defender of foie gras ever since Chicago banned the fatty liver (and then rescinded the ban on the fatty liver). In the past, Bourdain has focused on shooting down the ethical/humane arguments promoted by animal activists. Or arguing for an eater's right to choose. On Friday night at the […]

Jiminy Glick Interviews Ronald McDonald Over Killing Chickens

Jiminy Glick Interviews 'Ronald McDonald' – watch more funny videos It's apparently PETA day here at City Paper. Over at The Sexist, Amanda Hess is slamming the animal-rights organization for not exploiting women well enough in the name of critters (former CPer Jule Banville's fave word). I think Hess is being ironic, but I'll say […]
