When Lesley Townsend Duval launched the Manhattan Cocktail Classic five years ago, "cocktails were a trend," she says. "You could count on two hands the number of cocktail bars in New York City."

Disclosure statement: They say that all the cells in your body regenerate every seven years, which means that I'm now completely made out of plants. Like a cow, only way better-looking. I quit eating meat because animals are cute. Even the ugly ones are cute when they're babies. Plus, the Ed Gein torture-shed conditions provided by industrial agriculture are also environmentally grim. But! Some of my best friends -- and also the person I intend to marry -- eat meat, and I would never judge anyone by their dietary choices, unless those choices include quinoa, a high-protein pseudograin that tastes like chlorophyll mashed up with dirt, popular within an insufferable demographic cohort that likes National Public Radio and wears New Balance shoes. Other than that, no judging! Disclosure ends.

We're not particularly interested in the East Coast/West Coast rap-style rivalry between vegetarians and carnivores, mostly because there are few things more personal than individual food choices. We're also not a bunch of culinary evangelists over here (though we will take this opportunity to say that science has shown in at least one study that vegetarians are sexier than carnivores -- thanks carotenoids). But even if you're not a vegetarian motivated by vanity, health, or the sentience of cute animals, you should think about picking up a ticket to the annual NYC Vegetarian Food Festival -- the flagship event of U.S. Veg Corp -- founded in 2011 by Nira Paliwoda and Sarah Gross.
