I’m Going to @VillageVoice’s @ChoiceEats Tasting Event!

I love Fridays and I love weekends, but I really wouldn’t mind if it all just flew by and I was plopped down right in the middle of Tuesday. Why, you ask? Because Tuesday, March 13 is the Village Voice’s sixth annual “Choice Eats” event, which I am attending!

If you haven’t heard of “Choice Eats,” it’s a foodie’s ultimate paradise: a tasting event featuring 83 handpicked restaurants from all five boroughs, along with complimentary craft beer pairings, wine and liquor beverages.

In addition to tastings, guests will enjoy DJ sets by Andy Rourke of The Smiths, the legendary alt-rock band that materialized from the British indie music scene in the 1980s, and guest chef-celebrity, Ty-lor Boring, of Bravo’s hit show, Top Chef Texas. Ty-lor will host a demo for all VIP ticket-holders during the VIP hour from 5:30 – 6:30 PM.

VIP tickets have sold out, but a limited number of General Admission tickets are still available at for $50 each. A complete list of participating restaurants and sponsors is also available on the event website.


Here are the deets on the event:

WHEN: Tuesday, March 13 from 6:30pm-9:30pm with a VIP-only preview from 5:30pm-6:30pm
WHERE: 69th Armory on Lexington Avenue @ 26th Street, NYC
