It’s the most wonderful time of the year, a weekend of food and fun. I begin my journey to New York City on Friday for the New York City Wine and Food Fest presented by Food and Wine. I am attending the wine and food fest this year with a special role at the ShopRite Grand Tasting New York City Wine and Food Fest 2014.
I’ll start my New York City Wine and Food Fest weekend by attending the Blue Moon Burger Bash on Friday night which is presented by Pat LaFreida Meats and hosted by the amazing Rachael Ray. The Blue Moon Burger Bash is one the festival’s marquee events. During this event some of the best chefs in the U.S. will be serving up their favorite burgers to satisfy every palate.
After a fun-filled Friday night I will then head to the Grand Tasting hosted by ShopRite. I will be live blogging and social media sharing from the ShopRite booth from 12 pm – 2 pm as part of my on-going relationship with ShopRite. The ShopRite Grand Tasting New York City Wine and Food Fest 2014 is the centerpiece festival overlooking the beautiful Hudson River at Piers 92 and 94. The Grand Tasting is the perfect combination of some of the greatest food stars in the country and local NYC restaurants, some of the most sought-after wines and spirits and exciting interactive experiences with your favorite brands and foodie products. It is truly a food-lover’s dream and one of the most memorable part of the festival!
I’ve been a ShopRite girl all my life, shopping there with my mother as a child and shopping there with my children today. I am so excited to be attending the Grand Tasting and having the opportunity to share my love of ShopRite with the thousands of attendees.
