March 1 Means National Pig Day, but there's also this...
Happy Pig Day Y'all!
Several restaurants are celebrating in a variety of ways, but I would highly recommend One Cup Two Cupcakes, making the above Maple-Bacon yummies for the day! And, of course, Baconery. Even if they celebrate the swine EVERY day. Speaking of which, 'Swine is probably a great place to go to as well!
I know, I LOVE bacon. But the truth is, it's not very good for you! So, after you've come out of your sodium-coma, go ahead and make your way over to the New York City Vegetarian Food Festival. The festival takes place this weekend at the Metropolitan Pavilion. The space is open from 10am-5pm both Saturday and Sunday, March 2nd and 3rd. VIP Tickets are $30 a day and $50 for both days, and get you priority entrance with 5 raffle tickets. General admission is $5 and can be purchased at the door. Just a couple of their vendors include: PETA, Earth Balance, Harmony Cafe Kitchen, Chicago Vegan Foods, & Back to the Roots. Not to mention the lectures, performers and entertainers there to educate your mind and body! Did I mention there's stuff for your kids? There is!
So PIG out today and cleanse your soul tomorrow...that's what I would do anyway!
