Come to the Vege-Table


Team Vegetable doesn't get a lot of play this time of year, mostly because Ham and Turkey are hogging all of the attention. And when the veggies do get some action, they're usually smothered under a creamy soup or slathered up with cheese. Poor vegetables! The St. Louis Vegetarian Society does them up right, though, and this group showcases our meat-free friends at the Holiday Potluck Dinner tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the First Congregational Church of St. Louis (6501 Wydown Boulevard, Clayton). During the supper you'll have the opportunity to chomp on a tossed salad, savor the tofu-vegetable shepherd's pie and warm up with the vegetable barley soup. Plus, other vegan and vegetarian dishes will be served — including something you bring, if you want to share. Admission to the dinner costs $5 with a dish and a list of ingredients or $10 without; you can also bring along an unwrapped children's toy or book to donate to Food Outreach. For more information about the potluck, call the society at 314-995-2699 or visit
