Sweet! Chocolate, Dessert + Wine Lover’s Presale + Vendor Invite

13 Nov

Yes, The 8th Annual Chocolate, Dessert & Wine Lover’s Evening isn’t going down until February 4th, 6 pm, at the Stamford Marriott, but if you act before December 1 you can save some serious bucks. Instead of paying $45 per ticket, you’ll pay only $35 which adds up if you’re going as a couple or with a friend. We’re just saying, but this will make a great holiday present or an early way to prep for Valentine’s Day. Think how nice that’ll be to be prepped and ready to go that far in advance!

A weekend of decadence with drinks, food, art & more at the Westchester Magazine’s Wine & Food Weekend

26 Apr

Well, we know if you’re reading our blog you clearly love food, wine and beer, so we KNOW you’ll be all about Westchester Magazine’s 2nd annual Wine & Food Weekend coming up on May 17-20 at The Ritz Carlton Westchester in White Plains. Ritz Carlton, oooo fancy.

Eat up @ Fairfield County Eats! 2012 Charity Fundraiser at The Stamford Marriott

9 Apr

Fairfield County Eats! 2012 is on the way.  This year it’s taking place on 4/26, at The Stamford Marriott from 6-9 pm.  Tickets are $45 in advance (so buy them now) or $50 at the door.

So, you ask, what is this event?  Well, we went last year and were blown away by the scope of the food and drinks available to sample.  We were able to fill up pretty quickly on all the awesomeness and tried to stop at every spot.  There was so much to try that we actually had to limit ourselves…can you believe that?  Even we have limits.

We tried Bobby Q’s for the first time, met Amy Kundrat from CTbites for the first time, omnomnomed and just had a great time.  What made it better and what makes this year great, too, is that all proceeds go directly to The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County to help end hunger in our community.  Last year there were raffles and there were also crafts being sold, so we’re looking forward to this year’s offerings.  So, do yourself a favor.  Mark your calendar or tell Siri, “Put Fairfield County Eats! on my calendar on April 26 at 6 pm.”  Of course she’ll respond, “Ok, it is on your calendar…Food God.”  You know that “Rock God” is so overrated and overdone, anyway.
