What to do in NYC This Weekend: Nov 13-15

We're back in NYC and are looking forward to all of the sweet events this weekend!  There's free sweet treats from restaurants including Bouchon Bakery, free wine tasting, and an amateur chef chocolate cook-off.

Friday:  Head out to the Time Warner Center this Friday for the lighting of "Holiday Under The Stars" followed by the dessert tasting event, “We Are Sweet On You.”  Look out for sweet treats including double truffle brownies from Porter House New York, nutella profiteroles from Landmarc’s ovens, hot chocolate Italian style from A Voce and Star cookies from Bouchon Bakery.  This free event happens this Friday at 5:30pm at 10 Columbus Circle (at 59th St) in NYC.  Make sure you also join the Circle of Taste for a chance to win exclusive meals at these restaurants.

Saturday:  Union Square Wines hosts its weekly wine tasting this Saturday with EUROVINO.  Over 2 dozen wines from Austria, Germany, Italy, and Spain will be available for you to try.  This free event happens this Saturday from 2-5pm at 140 Fourth St (at 13th St) in NYC.

Sunday:  Head out to Brooklyn for the Brooklyn Chocolate Experiment this Sunday.  Cheer on amateur chefs, like our fellow food blogger Shelly, as they create both sweet and savory chocolate dishes. If you want to compete, the deadline for recipe submission is Friday the 13th.  If you want to sample and judge the dishes, online tickets are $20.  There will also be a free after-party in the front lounge with chocolate galore.  This event happens this Sunday from 1-5pm at the Bell House at 149 7th St in Park Slope, Brooklyn.


  1. Thanks so much for your shout-out :) I'm really excited about the event, but as it's approaching, I'm getting more and more anxious (Andrew Knowlton makes me feel nervous!)

  2. @ECP: You'll be great! And Knowlton's just another guy (I saw him at the New Amsterdam Market last month and he easily blended in with all of the other food lovers in the area!) Can't wait to hear how it went!

  3. Thanks for sharing! I may try to go to the Union Square Wine, and perhaps even the event at Columbus Circle.

  4. @FLB: I'll be at the Columbus Circle event, so look for the girl with the Nikon D70 camera! =)
