Hollywood Bowl's Food Vendors Go All-Vegetarian for Morrissey - LA Weekly

Excerpt:
"As his fans well know, Morrissey is no shrinking violet when it comes to his advocacy for animal rights and vegetarianism. He's been a longtime supporter of PETA and other animals-rights groups, and frequently demands that concert venues refrain from cooking or serving meat during his shows.

Today, the Hollywood Bowl announced that for Moz's shows there next week, it will become the latest venue to honor the singer's meat-free M.O. For the first time, according a press release, all menus at the Bowl's various food vendors will go completely vegetarian (though not full vegan — some dishes will still contain cheese and other animal products)."

Morrissey's concerts are attended by adults. Whether they individually eat meat or not, they all know that what goes on in slaughterhouses is not particularly kind and a bit stomach-churning. The images are not going to convince many people to give up meat. They're probably going to reinforce some people's notion that vegetarians and vegans are no fun at all and a bit judgemental, and that's about the extent of it.

There's an old advertising adage, unfortunately a bit inappropriate for the context, which is that you need to sell the sizzle. Posturing and hectoring doesn't do that at all.
I'm actually bringing my kids to the show at the Hollywood Bowl - they are already vegetarian. Any advice on how to handle this? Blindfolds?

Just warn them in advance that not every Morrissey song is a home run.

Not something you always see:
The venue itself advertising Morrissey's wishes by reposting the article.

What is the difference between a ham sandwich and a cheese sandwich ?

With regard to animal suffering, there is no difference other than the fact that the meat cow probably suffers less than the dairy cow.

Here's the menus for this weekend's Hollywood Bowl shows with a plethora of animal cruelty options for 'woke' Morrissey fans:

I note with amusement the amount of seats still available for his supposedly 'sold-out' gig, at least 400 for sale on morning of gig.....& that's just Ticketmaster....so much for Los Angeles 'Morrissey Day'....LOL!
