What we're about

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/

Irish Coffee Happy Hour

The Ragtrader & Bo Peep Cocktail and Highball Store

This Friday, Jan 25th is National Irish Coffee Day so thought why not celebrate it over a happy hour. Let's plan to meet at The Rag Trader, (36th btw 5th and 6th) for a toast to Irish Coffee. Hope to see you there! (This will be done in tandem with several other groups I run as well)

FarePlate - Celebration of Irish Food & Drink

Join FarePlate this March - the premier celebration of Ireland's food, drink and craft story in New York City.

Taking place at The Rag Trader, a recently awarded top international design award by Fit Out Ireland, guests will enjoy food and drink tastings featuring Irish ingredients and recipes. There will be the opportunity to graze between tasting bars across the two levels of the space, meet producers and brand ambassadors of Irish origin food, drink and craft brands and partake in a vibrant and energetic event vibe. For a more enhanced experience guests may opt for the special VIP experience. With early VIP access at 1:30PM, VIP guests will enjoy an exclusive Hennessy tasting and brand experience, followed by a presentation of custom crafted and innovative tasting plates at a selected seating time of 2:30PM or 4PM, the FarePlate signature cocktail, and curated gifts PLUS all the benefits of the General Admission experience. These are limited in availability. So join this March and celebrate all things Irish in the lead up to St Patrick's Day. More info: www.fareplate.com
