Eating healthy doesn’t always require counting calories—just remember that “green” rhymes with “lean” and “fried” rhymes with “died.” Nosh mnemonically with this Groupon.

On March 2 and 3, the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival invites local vegetarian restaurants and food companies to share their mouthwatering, cruelty-free fare with the city’s resident foodies and vegetarians at the Metropolitan Pavilion. This year’s food vendors include Lizzmonade, Field Roast, and Sacha Vida. Live entertainment keeps the festival lively while vendors from animal-rights groups and wellness centers educate guests on healthy, conscious living.<p>
The official after party kicks off on Saturday, March 2, when guests gather at The Cutting Room for a night of live music and charity with drink specials and vegan food (available for purchase). Performances from Elaine K, Ashley Allen, and Mick Lewis & The Fine Print keep things lively. During the party, guests dance and sip for a good cause: a portion of the proceeds benefits Mercy for Animals.<p>
Better Booze Festival
What do tofu and beer have in common? Quite a bit actually, thanks to the Better Booze Festival, presented by the eco-conscious team at U.S. Veg Corp. At this event, two floors surround attendees with samples of wine, beer, and spirits—all of which qualify as vegan. That means the brewmasters here eschew any and all animal products—even honey and magic from a witch's familiar—as do the festival food vendors who hand out mouthwatering vegan cuisine.
Lectures, classes, and live entertainment add to the festivities, which help support a good cause. A portion of the proceeds from the event benefit Animal Aid USA.
