Everything But The Kitchen Sink - 2nd NY Wine & Food Fest Edition

I was fortunate enough to be able to go to the Grand Tasting of the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival again this year (Thanks MB)! This three hour event is seriously the ultimate foodie heaven. There were 32 participating restaurants and chefs creating delicious sample-sized dishes, and 76 distributors pouring wine, spirits, and beer.

So excited to meet/see some celebrity chefs and personalities!

"Ooooh, prosciutto!"

Diet Coke is a sponsor?! The Edwin McCain lyrics immediately popped in my head: "...and I could not ask for more..." I may or may not have consumed 8 [small] bottles.
And, a few more random pics...
