2010 NYCWFF Grand Tasting Day 2

Here, Gary eats his way through a second session of the 2010 New York City Wine & Food Festival’s Grand Tasting.

As luck would have it, my duties on my second day of Eater Lounge coverage were done by noon so my editor asked if I wanted another go at the Grand Tasting. Um, hell yeah! My first go the previous day was an abbreviated one – I arrived over two hours into a three event so I didn’t really get a chance at some of the goodies. This time around, I got there close to the beginning and really did a bang-up job getting through as much as food as I could. […]

2010 NYCWFF Grand Tasting Day 1

Here, Gary eats his way through the first session of the 2010 New York City Wine & Food Festival’s Grand Tasting.

This past Saturday, it was fortuitous timing that I showed up at the Eater lounge when they needed someone to cover the Wine & Food Festival’s Grand Tasting. I was hungry and just wanted to jump right into the action so, with pass in hand, I was off to the piers by the Hudson River. Most of the atmosphere and food media-related photos can be found on the Eater write-up but if you want to see what the food looked like, then click on through this gallery. […]

Top Pot Doughnuts

Here, Gary starts his morning off with some delicious doughnuts at Top Pot Doughnuts.

Ah, doughnuts, the deep fried dough delicacy that never fails to make me happy. There’s no better way to start the day than with a nice, chocolate frosted doughnut and a cup of coffee. So on my first morning in Seattle, that’s exactly what I did, making the one mile walk from my hotel over to Top Pot Doughnuts. Was it worth the long walk and the subsequent time spent in line? Hell yes. […]

Seattle Food Stands

Here, Gary makes his way through some food stands during a long weekend in Seattle.

As you can tell from the many photos I took at last weekend’s Vendy Awards, I’m a big fan of street vendors. When I got to the Pacific Northwest a few days ago, I was hoping I’d find some excellent street vendors in Seattle. My mistake – apparently, all the real trucks are in Portland! Instead, I found some nice stationary stands in downtown Seattle serving up some classic street food and some not so ordinary stuff. Without further ado, here comes the first in many sets of photos to come from my trip to Seattle. […]

2010 Vendy Awards

Here, Gary shares photos from a wonderful afternoon attending the 2010 Vendy Awards on Governors Island.

This past weekend, I had the privilege of covering the 2010 Vendy Awards for Eater – for a complete writeup of the event and the winners, check out my post on their site. But afterwards or even before you click on that link, you should check out this photoset of all the food I managed to eat in the four hours I spent on Governors Island. I made it through all five finalists for the Vendy Cup and all five finalists for best dessert. I missed all the rookie competitors and made it to only one of the three Philadelphia vendors that made the trip up. […]
