Have you considered becoming a vegetarian but are not sure where to begin? CincyVeg has just the solution for you; it is a one-stop green-shop for all things veggie in the Tri-State. This new online resource is hosting a launch party 6-9 p.m. Friday at Park and Vine (1202 Main St., Over-the-Rhine). You will be able to sample local products from Sweet Peace Bakery, Lucky John’s Slow Market, PhroZEN Vegan ice cream, Five Star Foodies and Chocolat Latour.
CincyVeg was started by a group of vegetarians and vegans who wanted to create a place for news and information on green living in Cincinnati. CincyVeg.com is not just a Web site but a virtual community where people with common goals and interests can come together to share and grow. The site features a local and green directory, events, health, news, recipes and reviews. A membership is not required so if you want to try your hand at vegetarianism and need a little guidance, take a virtual tour of the Web site or stop by P and V to sample the goods.
