Treats & Eats
1. This Friday & Sat, Mar 4-5 at the 69th Regiment Armory, is Wine Riot by Second Glass. From Second Glass: "Wine Riot is your all access pass to hundreds of new wines. With two parts education and one part revolution, Wine Riot has reinvented "wine tasting" for the thirsty and curious..interactive booths and crash courses loaded with tips and tricks for conquering the wine world. Fueling your night of conquest is a tireless DJ, photo booth, temporary tattoos, and..The best part is, we made an app that tracks your favorite wines and shows you where to buy them later, arming you with all the tools needed for total wine domination."
2. Today (March 3rd) at La.venue in Chelsea, is Edible Manhattan's 7th Annual Good Spirits event. Boasting "many spirit offerings making their debut in the city, as well as the trusty and true — in one evening, under one roof. These cocktails will be expertly paired with top-notch tastes from some of New York City’s most acclaimed and up-and-coming chefs and food artisans". Attendees include some of my personal faves: Black Dirt Distillery, Wassail, GuS, and Brooklyn Gin.
Sights & Sounds
1. It's art fair season and there are multiple shows this weekend. I'm heading to Art on Paper at Pier 36 on the Lower East Side. The NY Times states "Art on Paper features sculptures, drawings and paintings by artists who work with paper as their medium. The fair is back for another round after its debut last year." The fair is from Mar 4th-6th, with a private view on Thu Mar 3rd at 6-7:30 pm. All proceeds go to deVivre fave the Brooklyn Museum.
2. While you're in an artsy frame of mind, do not miss Steve McCurry: India at the Rubin Museum through April 4th. This breathtaking collection of photographs really emphasises how wonderfully colorful and vibrant this Country is. From the Rubin's website "The exhibition, which is representative of three decades of McCurry’s work, is the first museum presentation to focus on his India photographs and includes some that have never been shown before." Go on a Friday between 6-10 pm and the museum is completely free!
