If you are like me, you live for food and wine pairing, and what better way to experience that than at the ultimate NYC food and wine showcase, the NYC Wine and Food Festival, hosted by Food Network. I visited the SoBoWFF in Miami Beach a few years ago, which was pretty cool and very cocktail-heavy, but NYC is THE food and wine mecca...need I say more?
The past events have been amazing, including a Meatpacking Wine Walk, Champagne Brunches, Food Truck Tournaments, and more. You can even get to see the stars of Food Network live and in person, which is the icing on the cake.
Tickets go on sale June 23, or if you have a Mastercard on June 9th (and you can try to scope Living Social closer to the dates for any discounted tickets). Be sure to sign up for the Grand Tasting though, as tickets go quick for that event.
