Is vegetarianism becoming a thing of the past? Newsweek says "flexitarians" are becoming more common than ever, with more knowledge of where livestock is coming from and how it's being raised. Remember how vegetarian Lisa Loeb on the Food Network show Dweezil & Lisa claimed she ate bacon occasionally? Coming from an ex-vegetarian/vegan: when you eat bacon, I don't care what you think you are, you're not a vegetarian. I'll head up the utopian movement where we don't even need labels for our food habits (unless you are labeling yourself a serious eater). We eat what we want; meatless somedays, even no dairy or eggs on others.
At least one borough is hoping vegetarians still exist. This Sunday, October 19, through Saturday, October 25, starts Bklyn Goes Veg!, a vegetarian restaurant week in Brooklyn, which currently has a lineup of 9 restaurants—vegetarian and non-vegetarian—and one online vegan restaurant. You're not required to be of any eating class to visit the restaurants, and at this point there's no info to be found on what kind of pricing or special menus we'll be seeing.
