Why can't we just love one another

As a devoted vegan flower-power child, this week is a frustrating but popular event that makes me want to cut off my ears. I understand that the week of March 18-24 is one that is greatly loved and supported by restaurants and Haligonians. Sure, it’s great exposure and competition for restaurants. But constantly hearing what kind of flesh sandwich you can't wait to devour is extremely vomit inducing and hard for me to get my head around. I can understand that this week is one where people come together and bond over meals and get deals that allow them to have a cheap beer with their flesh sandwiches, but like WTF. I know that there is a demand for vegan/vegetarian burgers, and yes I know they've been minutely included in this event, but why isn't there a vegan Burger Week where I can celebrate how wonderful plants are and not be HIGHLY excluded from this event? Feeling like the only vegan in Halifax is one thing, but why can’t we all just chill and bond over plant burgers with each other, y’know? —Passionate Groovy Vegan Chick
