New York is rife with festivals, especially the foodie sort. But a new food-and-music fest is coming to Brooklyn courtesy of a viral source: Jack Goldburg, a.k.a. Jack’s Dining Room, the NYC-based social media creator known for showcasing global restaurants and bites to his 2 million-plus followers.
