An up-tempo alternative to munching quietly at a desk or slogging through a long line at a local cafe, midday parties provide a place to shake and shimmy at least for a while.

"There's so many great aspects - the exercise, it relieves stress, it gets people out of their routine," the New York Daily News quoted Sarah Reynolds of Astoria, who organizes events called Lunch Beat LIC in Long Island City, as saying.

"Everyone just comes out and they have a wonderful time," she said.

The hour-long bashes are based on the Swedish-born Lunch Beat, which bans shop-talk, is not-for-profit and serves water for free. Similar events have popped up around the globe from Porto, Portugal to Portland, Oregon.

"It's one of those ideas that's 'the more, the merrier,'" Reynolds added.
