Wine & Dine: Make Plans For Next Weekend — Now!

1
You may still be figuring out what to do tonight, let alone next weekend. But with tickets selling out (fast!) for the Meals on Wheels Celebrity Chef Ball on Friday, October 12, we suggest getting a jump on your plans.
What's the urgency? Aside from helping out an amazing cause, a simple Friday night dinner turns into a food festival with substantial bites from over 60 chefs. Though it's hard to narrow down the culinary talent, some notable participants this year include: Patrick Fahey (Sixteen at Trump Tower), Ryan Poli (Tavernita), David Posey (Blackbird), Tony Priolo (Piccolo Sogno), Brian Huston (Publican), and many more. Of course, there will also be plenty of beer, wine, and cocktails — obviously.

If you really want to go big, there's also a VIP Chef's Table, a seated dinner experience, complete with wine pairings. Whichever route you choose, may we suggest another plan for your weekend: a trip to the gym.
