Village Voice Choice Eats

Mad restaurants under one roof.

Mad restaurants under one roof.

Village Voice is a long standing o.g in New York culture. As a youngster hanging downtown, I would always kill time by looking at the weekly publication. When the Village Voice changed their format and made the paper into a free weekly thats when I appreciated it more. It was always my go to, to see which music artist were in town.  Indeed , I would check the tits and ass  in the back pages and I’m sure I applied to test some shit for 2500.  These days I don’t get to grab the newspaper as much as I used to but I try to go to their events. In March, Village Voice will be celebrating their 9th annual Choice Eats. The awesome thing about this event , the food represents all walks of life. It’s a must go to event.  Straight New York talk.

Events: New York Taste 2014

One of my favorite New York magazines so happens to be the New York Magazine. New York Mag is pretty on top of the pulse of what’s happening in the city. They are also known for being on top of what’s new in the New York food scene. Every year, New York Mag assembles some of the top restaurants under one roof for a great dining experience. Check out some of the yummy bites from New York Taste 2014 below.

NICE PARTY

Last week, I attended an extraordinary culinary experience at Basketball City. The event was put together by one of the finest charitable organizations in the city. Although I had to use some old-school Brooklyn style tactics to get in, the event was one for the books. With over 70 restaurants participating, it was wall to wall of delightful bites. The venue also was set up with a dessert bar, an auction, a few mixologist, a scotch whiskey station and a cigar corner. Not only it was a fun event but the charity raised over a million dollars to help feed hunger. PINKYFINGERUP
