Tour de Champagne New York

by: Patrick "Lone Star" Chang

Champagne connoisseur, I am not - but a fan of the bubbles, I am. The Tour de Champagne New York was held on Thursday, November 12, at the La Venue on 28th and 11th avenue. This multi city tour allowed guests to sample champagnes from more than 20 champagne houses, enjoy live music, taste bites from local restaurants and, best of all, vie for the chance to win a trip for two to Paris! The anticipation for the event turned my week leading up to the Tour de Champagne into one of my longest and most agonizing weeks ever!

2009 Cook. Eat. Drink. Live New York

By: Ethan Shen

This past weekend was the 2009 Cook. Eat. Drink. Live. food extravaganza in New York City's Meatpacking District. From the wineries and mixologists to the restaurants and celebrity chefs, the three day festival was overflowing with an eclectic assortment of comfort foods and edible finery. After getting a week’s worth cravings satisfied in one afternoon, I was certainly a believer.

New York Goes Around the World in 80 Sips

By: Anne "M" Raso

Yes, I survived Friday the 13th - and it was spent drinking the night away at the Around The World in 80 Sips event held in recently renovated Delano & Aldrich building on 583 Park Avenue. Despite not quite being able to sip all 80 varieties of wine offered, I did sample a few morsels of cheeses from the Artisanal Premium Cheeses Company ( and Rick's Picks Smoked Okra and Phat Beets ( in between sips. If I did sample all that vino, no doubt a 911 call would have had to have been made by effervescent publicist Marybeth Bentwood of Delicious PR on my behalf!

Sweet Tooth Friendly at The Chocolate Show New York

By: Finance Foodie

Halloween in New York – home to the crazy and creative costumes, the over the top parties, and the infamous West Village parade – just got a little sweeter (literally) for me. That’s because this year I was finally able to attend the Annual New York Chocolate Show (I missed it every year when I lived in the City due to my crazy work hours). Held in the Metropolitan Pavilion, this three day affair showcased all things chocolate – as a raging chocoholic – I think I might have just died and gone to heaven!
