I see so many great food-related festivals and events going on in NYC throughout the year, but I believe I probably miss out on even more that I never hear about! So I thought it would be fun to put together a group to keep each other informed of events and hang out at them. For example, I just realized that I missed the Lobster Rumble a few weeks ago, but will be 100% attending the upcoming Bacon Bash and Cheesemonger Invitational! (as of 6/23/12)
Please feel free to schedule events, and/or send me your event ideas and I will try to organize them all. Please note the costs of each event, everyone is responsible for buying their own tickets.
Update (Fall 2012): I wont' be updating this group until the spring when more events come around and more people are up for coming out to them. In the meantime, I highly encourage you to follow Dave Cook's Eating In Translation Blog, Street Fairs category: http://www.eatingintranslation.com/street_fairs/
