Although you already spend most of your days drinking and eating in a highly festive manner, the official New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE is taking over town from Oct 17-20, and it features so many tastings, cocktail parties, and intimate dinners that your mind and stomach might fuse into one.
The eat-down will be hosted by Robert Irvine, the impressively biceped host of Restaurant: Impossible, who makes his living doing very crazy things with food -- here he'll do something extremely crazy, although we can't tell you what exactly. But it will be damn crazy! And will serve to feed you.
In addition to all the food stations plying you with excellence, you can also expect beer, a performance by blues maestros Sunnyside Social Club, Gnarly Head Wines, and Larceny and Henry McKenna whiskey aplenty, and on top of getting you full of food and booze, the whole shebang's for charity, so you can end the night patting yourself on your slighter fatter back.
