Running With Turkeys
For some college freshmen returning home for the first time, thrusting their newfound vegetarianism onto the family just isn't enough. They also want to get up early and run more than three miles in a costume around a stadium in Pasadena. The Rose Bowl Tofurky Trot fulfills all of these needs while also promoting a vegetarian lifestyle and benefiting the National Museum of Animals & Society. Yes, if tofu really was that delicious, restaurateurs would be working their hardest to make pork taste just like it. But there are still plenty of good reasons to bask in the glow of a stuffed roast that doesn't involve bloodshed --- and to mingle with a sweaty crowd of folks who agree that cheese is overrated and seitan is always a good sign. Rose Bowl Stadium, 1001 Rose Bowl Drive, Pasadena; Thurs., Nov 28, 9 a.m.; $25. Participants are asked to bring donations of nonperishable, vegan food to help the needy.
