The demonstrators were set up outside Vic and Anthony's Steakhouse on Texas Ave. in front of signs that read "If Slaughterhouses Had Glass Walls... Go Vegan!" and "Meat Is Murder."
Other PETA members distributed materials to passers-by.
"We are challenging people to really think about what meat is," PETA campaigner Adam Miller said. "When you eat flesh, you're eating the corpse of an abused animal who did not want to die. We're encouraging kind consumers to try going vegan."
