thats what I was gonna suggest too...hope it works out/worked out well for you.

Gillibean, sorry if I sounded rude in my last post.



I would still argue that point. One of the reasons people become veg*n is because they're offended by what happens to animals. Doesn't mean to say they will be alienated by veg*n principles.

Is that too strong for this board?



Meat eaters are murderers and those who say that it's too harsh to call them that are surrounded by such murderers. Most people on this board are like that, they live and sleep with such murderers and are hence not as objective as they should be. How can you call a man 'murderer' when you had oral sex with him the earlier night?

I have absolutely no respect for such people.





To answer the original posters question, yes it will be better if you inform your client about your eating restrictions and choose an veg-friendly restaurant. I was in this position many times and it's always better to tell in advance. Although i would mention that all eat-outs in India offer veg food.

yeah i know, you have mis-interpreted my post completely. I was just saying that calling meat-eaters 'murderers' is not out of line. Vegetarians who take offense to that are not being objective.

Stay on topic guys, and keep it civil or the thread will be closed.

If you want to discuss something other than having dinner with a client, please start another thread.
