5 Events You Must Check out at #NYCWFF

One of fall’s biggest culinary events and perhaps our favorite event of the year, the New York City Wine & Food Festival, happens this weekend from Oct 13th to 16th. Where else can you see some of your favorite chefs and culinary personalities, enjoy fantastic food and drink all while doing it for a great cause? Net proceeds from the festival will benefit the No Kid Hungry® campaign and Food Bank For New York City.

The weekend is full of walk-around tastings, culinary demos, panel discussions and exclusive dinners. Here are five big tasting events we’re looking forward to this weekend that you should totally check out:

Tacos & Tequila

Grab some of the city’s best tacos and wash it down with an abundance of creative tequila cocktails! A marvelous way to get a jump-start on the weekend.

Thursday, October 13, 10:00 PM — 1:00 AM @ The Eventi Hotel

Chicken Coupe

If you’re a fan of Whoopi Goldberg (who is the event’s host), fried chicken in all its forms, and champagne, then head over to the event at Williamsburg’s new William Vale Hotel!
