Etiquette: on potlucks and vegetarians [moved from General Topics]

I'm having anywhere between 5 and 10 people over for a Thanksgiving potluck this coming Sunday. 3 confirmed guests are vegetarian. Everyone seems to bringing some sort of side (pie, squash, cranberries, what have you). My plan was to try and offer some sort of main dish, but I can't decide whether I should make it vegetarian or not. I don't criticize other people for their eating choices, but vegetarianism doesn't jive with my own training diet, and meat is delicious.

Do I offer an animal-based main dish at the risk of making the veggie guests feel alienated, or do I proceed as I normally would, given that I am the host, and let them adapt?
