Today, October 1st, is World Vegetarian Day. Did you have a tofu scramble for breakfast to celebrate? Or were you blissfully unaware of the occasion as you made your way down the buffet line, heaping bacon strips and sausage links on your plate?

So where among Las Vegas steakhouses and buffets can locals and tourists find creative vegetarian cuisine?
