In a city where seafood is sometimes billed as a meatless option, New Orleans vegetarians don't have the easiest path. But Veggie Fest is a showcase for the local vegetarian and vegan lifestyle. The two-day event features nutrition and fitness experts, food booths, films and live music. It is May 21-22 at the Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Arts Center (1618 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., 527-5858). Visit www.nolaveggiefest.com for information.
