This weekend, I might check out the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival, which starts today and runs through Oct. 14th. Presented by Food & Wine magazine, the event celebrates one of the greatest dining capitals of the world and some of the world’s greatest chefs, winemakers and spirit producers. The proceeds go towards the hunger-relief programs of Food Bank For New York City and Share Our Strength®. This is the perfect opportunity to rub elbows with other foodies—and maybe even a Food Network star or two—at a series of events, dinners, seminars and more! For a full list of events, click here.
