Eat friendlier

September 14, Meatless Mondays at Old Ironsides

There are lots of good reasons to be a vegetarian. It's healthy. It good for the environment. And, of course, there's the whole not-killing-animals part. That's why many participate in Meatless Mondays, which advoctes that abstaining from meat even just one day a week makes a positive impact. Local chef Gabriel Aiello adopted that ethos a while back by preparing healthy vegan or vegetarian meals for folks at home. Now he's moved it to Old Ironsides, serving up $5 plates every second Monday. 6 p.m., Monday, September 14, $5. 1901 10th Street;
