Freebie of the Week Luke's Lobster is throwing their first-ever Lobster Bake this Saturday (Oct 26th) with whole lobsters, blueberry cake, and hot apple cider included with your ticket, as well as brews available for purchase (a portion of proceeds go to charity). If you're feeling lucky, we've got you plus a guest's ticket covered if you tweet at @ThrillistNYC and @LukesLobster with #ThrillBake and tell us your craziest, weirdest, or most interesting fact about lobsters. Thursday, October 24th It's white truffle season, which means it's time to put the expensive delicacy all over everything. Do it in style at Ribalta's launch of their new white truffle pizza, at a dinner featuring truffles all up on everything from said showstopping pizza to vanilla gelato. Call for reservations
Saturday, October 26th Since Oktoberfest is sadly over, join the people at Good Beer Seal as they celebrate anyway with "Alt-toberfest", featuring a stein-hoisting competition, BBQ meats, pretzels, and a "Tappy Hour" tap dance demonstration. That's right
More lobster and more festing is in store this weekend thanks to "Lobstoberfest" at Hudson Common, featuring crazy lobster creations like salted caramel lobster rolls, white truffle lobster rolls (there they are again), grilled tails, and a polka band. Don't eat the band
Sunday October 27th The fourth annual Not My Day Job "talent extravaganza" is featuring musical performances from food and beverage industry folks as well as bites from the very same folks, including Anfora, Gin Palace, Roberta's, Khe-Yo, The Wren, and more. And hey it's for charity, so grab a ticket here
