Tailgating with Jets + Chefs at NYCWFF

by Tracy Kaler                                                                                            ***SPONSORED

The Food Network NYC Wine & Food Festival attracted thousands last weekend.

What do New York foodies and Jets fans have in common? A tailgating party at the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival. Mike and I joined hundreds on Saturday at the Esurance Rooftop at Pier 92. It was a gorgeous day weather-wise (not too warm and not too cool), for meat eaters and Jets devotees. If it wasn't enough to have star players like Quinton Coples and Erik Coleman handy for photo ops and autographs, celebrity chef Mario Batali and the ultimate Jet, 'Broadway Joe' Namath were in the house.

Woes of the New York City Pedestrian

LIFE IN THE APPLE
by Lauren Malamala


How nice it would be to hop in a taxi to head downtown for a night out with the girls.

Unless you have the budget to take a cab everywhere you go, living in NYC means that you’ll be hitting the pavement and doing a significant amount of walking. I'd love to take a taxi downtown for a night out with the girls, but that’s often coupled with the thought of “Wow, I could've used that money to pay my electricity bill.” So, for the most part, my main mode of transportation tends to be the subway, bus, or my feet.

He dressed thousands of women over the years including first ladies Jackie Kennedy, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Laura Bush, and most recently Michelle Obama. Celebrities are no stranger to the artist's creations, either. And some, such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Amy Adams, and Jessica Chastain, have graced the red carpet more than once in Oscar dresses.

A Great Musical Has Been 'Found'

A Theatre Review

 “Dear Mom, summer camp is not fun anymore. Everyone is dying.” This and other sentiments are expressed in Found, the new Off-Broadway musical with a book co-written by Hunter Bell, one of the masterminds behind the Broadway meta-musical, [title of show]. Found tells the story of Davy Rothbart, creator of Found Magazine, which is a collection of real-life notes, lists, and scribbles that have been discovered by actual people in Chicago and around the country.

Harding's NYC: Fresh Americana and a Brunch Burger Like No Other

WINE DINE & FOOTLIGHTS
by Tracy Kaler


Carnivores flock to Harding's for one of the best burgers in NYC.

When the folks at Harding's invited me to stop in and check out their new brunch menu, I couldn't refuse. Despite what the NY Times wrote recently in the article "Brunch is for Jerks," I thought I'd take my chances at the risk of coming off as another youngish, conforming Gothamite. Because the truth is, I like brunch now and then.

Why Blogging Is Better Over 40

TRACY TALKS

Is blogging the "it" occupation at any age?

There was a time when I thought I was too old to blog. To me, blogging had always sounded like a teen or college student hobby, and not one that could ever be a job, let alone a career. But bloggers are everywhere.

Eating and Drinking Your Way Through Astoria, Queens

THE BBQS
Straight from the outer boroughs
by Jerry Del Priore 


Upscale Trattoria L'Incontro has brought mouthwatering Italian dishes to Astoria since 1999. {credit}

Astoria happens to be one of my favorite New York City nabes to grab a tasty bite and a dazzling drink. Though this section of Queens is primarily Greek, the area also has a rich, eclectic mix of other nationalities such as Italians, Asians, South Americans, Eastern and Central Europeans, and Middle Eastern people who call it home. 

As for its fare, Astoria’s melting pot population is surely represented well, with a little bit of something for everyone to enjoy. From great Greek places to iconic Italian spots, to Japanese gems to Middle Eastern marvels, Astoria will never disappoint as a food and drink destination.
