Today's side deal turns the color of the Hulk, but without a penchant for cutoff shorts. For $10, you get an all-access pass to the Go Green Expo on Saturday, March 20, and Sunday, March 21 (a $25 value). Go Green Expo is a massive, eco-friendly consumer-goods trade show. Green-carpet guests and speakers include actors Mariel Hemingway and Matthew Modine, fitness expert Bobby Williams, Eco-Sex author Stefanie Iris Weiss, and professional Ed Begley Jr. impersonator Ed Begley Jr. Everything green and good takes place at Pier 92. Your pass also includes admission to the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, adjacent to the expo.
See natural building materials from The Home Depot, exhibits from Volkswagen and GM, and a huge array of grass-fed blenders, electric commuting zeppelins, and solar-powered forks. There's also a full calendar of lectures and panels dealing with how to green your business, live sustainably, and dress eco-cool (fig leaves are out, palm fronds are in). The woven grass doors open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and the following day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Present your Groupon at the registration table for entry.
