Law School visit with Son

Father and son visiting Law College on Monday. I Have booked them into the Sheraton for Sunday night.

I have noticed comments about difficulty with getting room service there at night time. Their arrival will probably be later on Sunday evening. Where can they get a vegetarian meal that would be close by to campus at that time?

Any tips what my husband can do on Monday while my son is occupied with Law School visit.

My vegetarian freshman daughter recommends Masala, an Indian vegetarian restaurant open until 9:30 on Sunday and just 2 blocks from the Sheraton. http://www.masalaiowacity.com/ .

The Pita Pit is a fast food kind of place with vegetarian offerings less than 10 minute walk from the Sheraton. It is open until midnight. www.pitapitusa.com/main.php…

The Red Avocado is her favorite vegan, local, organic place. It is more expensive and not open for dinner on Sundays. Some other time: http://theredavocado.com/ .

The previous poster has made excellent recommendations. Almost every restaurant downtown will have vegetarian dishes on the menu. A couple options nearby, especially veg-friendly, and in order of proximity to your hotel:

Bread Garden - nice salad bar with lots of interesting options. Just downstairs from your hotel! It is also a small grocery store. Closes at 10. http://www.breadgardenmarket.com/

Thai Flavors - quick service, lots of tofu or veg options, just around the corner. Closes at 9. http://www.thaiflavors.net/

New Pioneer Coop - Grocery store with nice deli. Best sandwiches in town. Plenty of veg options. Closes at 11. www.newpi.com/Products/DeliandCatering.aspx

The previous posters provided some great advice regarding dinner. As for your question about what your husband can do during the day, what are some of his interests?

There's a natural history museum on the campus, just a few blocks from the hotel. There is a fabulous independent bookstore (Prairie Lights) close to the hotel, if he's a reader. There's a fossil gorge north of town, an Amish community within a half an hour's drive, the university's sports hall of fame, etc. There are some pretty drives through the rural countryside, if that's something that he would enjoy. Would any of this be of interest to him?
