Joy of Sake

The Joy of Sake, is a sake lovers dream. Picture a  room with over 300 sakes to taste test. Perfect event to get your sake 101 and take notes. On top of drowning in sake there was some wonderful, clean fresh food. Some of favorites were from Zuma and O ya. Pinky-

All Star BBQ

Rounding out this fabulous dream team includes Leah Cohen (Pig&Khao), Alex Guarnaschelli (Butter) and Missy Robbins(Lilia) to name a few.

Taste of Williamsburg/Greenpoint




In my book, one of the most solid neighborhoods in the food and drink scene is Williamsburg. So many dope spots opened up this year alone, joining some old classics. Stop all that noise, good ol’ Billy Burg is still the place to hang especially is your questing for food.  Can’t hit every restaurant so I suggest you go to the Taste of  Williamsburg/Greenpoint for  a foodgasm .

Pig Island is a do not miss event. When ever Jimmy and the Food Karma put together event, do me a favor and scoop up tickets. All through the year, the team throws all different themed events. This one can be the Granddaddy of all of them. Pig Island will be taking place in Red Hook Brooklyn at Erie Basin Park, next to Ikea. Soak in the sun, have a few cold ones at some pork from some of the finest pit masters and chefs.
