New York City's first-ever Divorce Expo is being touted as "one-stop shopping" for lonely hearts suffering through a breakup.
"Start Over Smart" will be held at the Metropolitan Pavilion this weekend. Its founders say the expo is an antidote to the nation's massive wedding planning industry.
Various exhibits will help people sort through recommended divorce attorneys, therapists and financial planners. There will be free makeovers and dating advice, personal shoppers, hairstylists and matchmakers. An evening "mixer" will allow people to socialize and perhaps meet someone new.
Divorce expos have been held in other cities, but this is billed as the first for New York.
Francine Baras, who co-founded the event, says they are hoping to show people that there really is a life after divorce.
