Found February 15, 2013 on Bush League Chronicle:
A congratulations is in order for the STAPLES Center after the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) recently named the Los Angeles venue as the most vegetarian-friendly arena in the NBA.In the press release, PETA recognized the home of the Lakers and Clippers for providing fans with an "exceptional array of delicious and healthy meat-free fare." Because Lob City is playing its best basketball in years, thanks to Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, Clippers fans may have more to cheer about this year than Lakers fans do. But fans of both teams have reason to celebrate the STAPLES Center's awesome vegetarian fare. With vegan sloppy Joes, a veggie burger, vegan sushi, a grilled veggie sandwich, and a hummus-and-pita plate, the STAPLES Center's vegetarian concessions are a slam dunk for fans, no matter which team they're rooting for. Of course, given the economic inflation in the country's second most-populated city, fans of the two LA teams are probably paying a premium price for such items. Nonetheless, at least those with meat-free diets have ample options at the STAPLES Center, according to PETA.The home of the Toronto Raptors, the Air Canada Centre, ranked second on the list while famed venue Madison Square Garden failed to crack the top ten. The Knicks' home did garner an honorable mention, though, for its falafel, veggie sushi, and edamame.Via SportsbyBrooks
