Entertainment venues in Los Angeles may soon be forced to offer vegan options if a proposed piece of legislation comes into force, as reported by Forbes.

Movie theatres, concert halls, the airport, and ironically, the zoo, would have to put at least one vegan option on the menu if plans by councilman Paul Koretz are passed.

Koretz outlined his plans at a press conference, saying: "Any restaurant that doesn't serve vegan food is burning money."

Vegan option

The councilman didn't say exactly what constituted a vegan option.

According to Forbes: "He gave the example of serving vegan hot dogs the same way meat-based hot dogs are served at Dodger Stadium. But the question for theater owners will be is a bag of pistachios considered vegan food? Or will the legislation specify that it must be a heated product?"

Los Angeles is considered one of the world's most vegan-friendly cities, recently topping animal rights charity PETA's list.
