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.

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.
Took a little time off to get my head right. I thought about whats next for PFU and for me in general. Along my journey, I’ve been faced with haters and folks who try to lay obstacles on my path to greatness. I almost let them get under my skin but I realized how far PFU has grown and the potential. So I decided to celebrate my greatness by attending New York Magazine Taste event. I’ve been going to this event for a very long time and it keeps getting better every year. Some of NYC’s best chef threw down.
