Oktoberfest Dinner on the Farm
Tonight, October 7th, 6-10pm
Get away from the city without actually leaving it by attending a hearty Oktoberfest dinner at the Queens County Farm Museum’s Adriance Farmhouse. The event features plenty of sausage and other good food, beer and live music.
Why: I’ve been at Oktoberfest, and I’ve been on a farm. They’re both quite fun and the combination should be stellar.
Queens County Farm Museum, 73-50 Little Neck Parkway, Floral Park
$50. Buy tickets here.
Gretchen Jones on Sale
Find eco-designer and Project Runway finalist Gretchen Jone’s Fall 2011 collection online at Steven Alan. It’s highly edited (read: not much to choose from) but didn’t you know that choice doesn’t equal happiness?
Why? Her edgy sparkly rock jewelry and jumpsuit is all you need to wear on a nippy Friday night to impress.
$219 to $595, pick up it up here.
SLOW U: Sustainable Sashimi
Tuesday, October 11, 6-8pm
The event will feature a tasting of four fish species from local Montauk waters, which could include Yellowfin Tuna, Swordfish, Scallops, Fluke, Striped Bass, Golden Tilefish, and Porgy, depending on what the fishermen catch the day before. Chef Katie O’Donnell, of Esca, will serve the fish in its raw form while attendees enjoy local wine. Sea to Table co-founder Sean Dimin will tell the story behind the catch.
Why? Proceeds from this event, hosted by ICE, will help support the activities of Slow Food NYC, including the Urban Harvest programs of good food education for NYC kids.
