Minneapolis – For the first time in four years, the vegetarian fare at Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, home of the Minnesota Vikings, is being recognized by PETA. For its exciting and customizable meat-free versions of stadium classics, the Metrodome has earned an honorable mention on PETA’s 2013 list of the Top Five Vegetarian-Friendly NFL Stadiums.

“Vikings fans can always count on Adrian Peterson and the delicious meat-free options at the concession stands,” says PETA Associate Director Ryan Huling. “Maybe the Metrodome’s return to PETA’s list of top vegetarian-friendly stadiums will signal good things to come for the Vikings, too.”

The best way to start getting fired up for the game is by biting into a delicious three-grain veggie burger—brown rice, quinoa, and vegetables combined to create the texture of a meat burger—served with field greens and topped with basil pesto. Discerning Vikings fans can also enjoy the Gardenburger, a custom-designed salad with unlimited toppings from the Farm to Fan cart, and the Farmstand Nachos, which include black beans, red jalapeños, pico de gallo, and fresh cilantro and can be ordered without cheese.

Topping the rankings this year is the Philadelphia Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field. Rounding out the top five are the Kansas City Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium (second place), the Oakland Raiders’ Coliseum (third place), the Detroit Lions’ Ford Field (fourth place), and the San Diego Chargers’ Qualcomm Stadium. Also receiving honorable mentions are the homes of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos, and Arizona Cardinals.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
