It's Almost the Weekend...Time for Food Festivals!

Of course one of the biggest and best food festivals of all happens this weekend.  The New York City Food & Wine Festival starts tomorrow and has tons events all weekend long.  The ever popular Blue Moon Burger Bash is Friday night hosted by Rachel Ray.  Saturday the Grand Tasting should pack in a great crowd for sampling delicious small plates and drinks.  While Sunday I can't think of a better place to be than Dale's Dim Sum Party.  Some events are already sold out but many tickets are still available  Head over to their website to check out what's left.

If you feel like getting out of the city this weekend I have another great food event for you out in Dover Plains, New York.  Mavada Farms, home of Crown Maple Syrup, is opening up its' new cafe and visitor's center on Saturday.  You can expect a full on tasting event from some great Hudson Valley producers such as Mast Brothers Chocolate, Blue Marble Ice Cream, Captain Lawrence Brewery (one of my favorites) and of course the Crown Maple team themselves.  What a better way to spend a relaxing Fall Saturday!
