Boston Vegetarian Society

For the third year in a row I’ve missed the Boston Vegetarian Society’s New Year’s Day dinner. They try to make it easy on people, too, with seatings at 12:00 and 3:00, but after New Year’s Eve I just can’t make myself get out of the house that early. I curse myself for this every year.


I’ve also never been to the BVS’s monthly seminars/dinners at Grasshopper, but I have been to some of their other dinners, and they’ve all been great. The special menu nights at Veggie Planet are especially delicious. They remind me of the ONCE vegetarian that Jason and I went to (where we actually ended up sitting with some BVS members!). It can be a little pricey, but the food is thoughtful and seasonal, and it’s really fun discussing each course with your seatmates. Seating is all family style, and, as antisocial as I am, even I enjoyed meeting new people there. It’s reassuring to know we all have at least one thing in common.

BVS also puts on the Boston Vegetarian Food Festival in the fall, as well as cooking classes and other events throughout the year. Sign up for the BVS newsletter to keep up to date. I feel like they’re a valuable resource that I’m not using as well as I could.
