MeatlessMonday is officially a thing, as proven by thousands upon thousands of Instagram posts featuring balsamic glazed carrots or artfully arranged romanesco. However, hashtags are not born out of thin air; they are created and promoted by “influencers.” The first person to promote the concept of Meatless Mondays was food blogger, food journalist, and all around food thinker Kim O’Donnel. You might expect her to be an obnoxiously preachy vegetarian activist, but she's actually the author of The Meat Lover’s Meatless Celebrations. She's not forcing veggies down your throat so much as pointing out that they are really good for you and delicious. This week, she's putting on a dinner at Pioneer Square’s E. Smith Mercantile focused on the vegetarian bounty of the Pacific Northwest, and it’s only $55, which includes a cocktail to get you started. E. Smith is great, we should all strive to eat more veggies, and this is a great way to eat great veggies (like fiddleheads!) at a great price. There's also an optional cocktail pairing menu, which—it being E. Smith—really isn't optional.
