Making the switch to a plant-based diet might seem intimidating, but modern eating has eased this transition. Don’t believe us? Check out these Columbus options offering delicious meatless meals at a fraction of the price and virtually none of the cholesterol.

The question at BIBIBOP for Meatless Monday isn’t if you should get one bowl, it’s should you get more for later? A veggie bowl (tofu or just no protein) is already on the cheap side ($5.50) and on Mondays, you can enjoy yours at 20% off. Toss in an always free cup of miso soup and you’re eating like plant-based royalty.

BrewDog Franklinton: Meatless Mondays | 463 W. Town St.

You know what pairs well with a vegetarian dinner? A BrewDog beer. The vegetarian options here are offered at $8 a dish featuring dishes like a sweet potato burger or a grilled cheese with tomato bisque. That being said, all eyes will surely be on whoever orders the fried cauliflower tossed in a sauce of their choosing.

Woodhouse Vegan At Oddfellows Liquor Bar | 1038 N. High St.

On Mondays and Tuesdays, the women at Woodhouse Vegan set up shop at Oddfellows serving up all kinds of incredible and approachable vegan dishes. The menu is always updated week-in and week-out, so follow them on Instagram for the latest. And next time you stop by, tell the bartender you ordered a vegan dish for $1 off your next beer.

Forgetting about Memorial Day isn’t as much a sign of how irrelevant the calendar has become as compared to this following anecdote from a cherished local business. 

When talking to the owner of Buckeye Donuts about its National Donut Day plans, it didn’t dawn on him until a few days ago that he needed to start preparing for the holiday. Now, Buckeye Donuts is more than prepared, assuming a 10 p.m. curfew, which will keep the 24/7 campus spot from operating out of its original pocket.

The following list consists of five places where you can get your donut fix on Friday.

Buckeye Donuts

A local and campus establishment for 51 years, Buckeye Donuts will again be pulling out all the stops; that is, as much as they can. Being a 24-7 establishment, Buckeye Donuts has layers of bakers on deck prepared to do big bakes every eight or so hours with all sorts of varieties and specialities to indulge in.

Duck Donuts

Duck Donuts wants to promote kindness throughout the community this Friday. Whatever way you order, you’ll be treated to a free cinnamon sugar donut, at participating locations.

Amy’s Donuts

No purchase necessary, Amy’s Donuts is offering a free bag of cake donut holes, while supplies last.

Dunkin’ Doughnuts

Stop by any participating Dunkin’ and you’ll be given a free donut with any beverage purchase.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

All week Krispy Kreme has been spreading donut kindness. If you place an order with them today, you'll receive a free donut. The promo started on June 1.

Condado Tacos open in select locations after closing its doors Tuesday

Condado Tacos is open once again after closing its doors to the public Tuesday following an employee walkout Monday night. Polaris and Clintonville locations remain closed until further notice.

Employees at the Polaris location walked out Monday after refusing to fulfill a catering order by the Ohio Highway Patrol, according to a press release from Condado Tacos Wednesday. The employees who walked out were given the opportunity to not work on the order, without repercussion, if they didn’t feel comfortable, according to a statement provided by Linda Powers, Condado Tacos director of marketing.

The order by the Highway Patrol was placed at the Condado Tacos Polaris location on the fifth-straight day of George Floyd protests in Columbus. Floyd’s death was ruled a homicide following an incident where a Minneapolis police officer placed deadly force on Floyd’s neck with his knee. The incident has sparked protests across the country, including Columbus.

After reaching out to Condado’s PR agency over email, the contact stated that their team has “parted ways” with the business. 

Wednesday’s statement by Condado says they “value different points of view,” but, “choosing not to serve a particular group, in this case law enforcement officers, in itself is discrimination and goes against our core values to welcome and serve everyone.”

Read the full statement here.
