In the run-up to the end of the year, I didn’t really have a spare moment to update the calendars on this website. With the cold snap in NYC this weekend, it was a great time to hunker down and work on the 2018 NYC Food & Drink Events calendar. The first month of the year is chock full of all kinds of great activities. Like Cassoulet? There’s two competitions at which you can sample this classic French dish: one held by Jimmy’s No. 43 and one by D’Artagnan. Looking for Burns Night festivities? MOFAD has one, as does the Flatiron Room. How does a Hot Chocolate crawl sound during these cold days? Check out these places to grab some during Valrhona’s festival. Looking for event more things to check out in the NYC food scene? Head on over to the NYC Food & Drink Events page to see what’s going on in January, as well as in the coming months.
