Food Network celebs join NYC’s top toques for this annual celebration, with a nonstop stream of tastings, workshops, lectures and parties. While many marquee events such as the Burger Bash have already sold out, you can still snag tickets to the star-studded Grand Tasting on Sat 13 and Sun 14 (single day $195, both days $350), as well as Trucks & Train with Andrew Zimmern—a food-cart festival with a live performance from the “Hey, Soul Sister” hit-makers (Sun 14; $150). There’s plenty to keep the boozehounds busy, too: This year’s impressive cocktail programming includes a sold-out molecular-cocktail seminar with Wylie Dufresne and Dave Arnold, and a whiskey pairing dinner at STK with New York Distilling Company’s Allen Katz. Don’t kick yourself too hard if you missed out, as you can still catch Katz at Gin Revolution (Sun 14; $65), learn about hot cocktails from the Lambs Club crew (Sat 13; $100), or join Andrew Carmellini at Astor Hours Cocktails, a late-night sipfest featuring the talents of Willy Shine, Andy Seymour, Justin Noel, Tim Cooper, the Dutch Kills team, Seamus Mullen, Karen DeMasco and more (Thu 11; $95).
