It seems like NY’ers can’t get their fill of alcohol. The Craft Beer Festival just ended last weekend and now, to be fair, we’re on to the Hard Cider Festival.
Cider enthusiasts can pay one-price and have an opportunity to try some world class ciders made locally and around the globe. You can speak to over 30 different brewers, responsible for creating some of the world’s most popular and award-winning fermentations. The one-day event will have live music, lectures, and an array of food trucks.
My favorite ciders are J.K.’s Scrumpy Hard Cider and Strongbow. What’s yours?

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!
The NYC Food Film Festival kicks off this weekend – October 13-16th.
Through documentaries, features and short films, the Festival showcases the best, and the most memorable, of the world’s favorite foods. Along with a heaping helping of mouth-watering films you are served up the food that you are watching on the screen for a multi-sensory, full-bodied experience.
The NYC Food Film Festival is a competitive film festival that presents awards in seven categories: Best Feature, Best Short, Best Super-Short, Best Food Porn, Best Film Made In New York, Food Filmmaker of the Year and the Audience Choice Award. The Official Selections of the 2011 NYC Food Film Festival are reviewed by a judging panel comprised of members of New York City’s food and film communities.
For the 3rd year in a row, the NYC Food Film Festival announced its partnership with the Food Bank For New York City; a portion of Festival proceeds will be donated to the Food Bank to assist in its important work.
