    I forgot to mention, but I'm a "free agent" looking to break into the food space industry. If there's any food company in NYC that's willing to take a risk on a "proud foodie" like myself who is all about community building and partnerships, and loves connecting people through food and fun, kindly reach out to me under this thread. Thank you and look forward to meeting you at the event!
