On Saturday night I went to New Taste of the Upper West Side – a 3 day food festival highlighting the restaurants on the Upper West Side. It was a fun atmosphere, complimented by Joe Battaglia and his big band sound. I left full, with a listof dining experiences I’ll try this summer. Thanks to all at the event who made it a success!
It might be rainy this weekend, but this looks like a fun thing to do in regardless because fall is apple season in New York!
Come to the farm to buy a variety of apples, donuts, freshly-pressed cider, and apple pie. See cider-pressing demonstrations and watch as the nation’s largest apple cobbler bakes on site! Treat yourself to unique collectibles & local food items for sale, take a hayride, and participate in free children’s games.
Gate admission to this event is free. Sunday October 7, 11:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
