Couldn’t put it more succinctly myself. It would make a perfect fortune cookie line or even a better culinary event.
Culinary events in New York are getting bigger and badder all the time, but this puppy is so HUGE that it’s going to require all of Pier 94. Cook. Eat. Drink. Live. to be held October 26-27th, will be a combo of a giant trade show (think the Fancy Food Show) as well as a giant dining event (à la Taste of New York), adding in fifteen cooking classes a day, five wine-tasting classes, and five mixology classes too, taught by celebrity chefs such as alumni of Bravo’s “Top Chef” program, Ilan Hall and Sam Talbot, and by Gotham’s top restaurant chefs, including Brad Farmerie of Public, and Amanda Freitag of Gusto.
Want more? There will also be opportunities to sample wines and spirits from around the world, and seminars on sushi-making, and caviar tasting. Younger visitors can develop their palates at the Children’s Pavilion, where there will be cooking demos targeted at the elementary school set. The Make-A-Wish Foundation will receive 5% of proceeds from the sales of tickets.
Normally, this orgy of A-list epicureanism would cost $325 a day, but buy tickets with the NYMAG code for a reduced rate of $175 a day or $350 for the weekend, including all demos.
Thursday, October 25–Saturday, October 27, Pier 94, Twelfth Avenue at 55th Street,

P.S. I’m flying cross-country for this bad boy!
