Our weekly dining and drinking newsletter features all the coolest epicurean events in the city.

New York Taste
Skylight, 275 Hudson Street
November 2

New York Magazine is hosting its 11th annual New York Taste event, benefiting City Harvest. Join culinary editor Gillian Duffy and more than 40 chefs from around the city for an evening of tasty eats and drinks. You’ll get to try bites and sips from the likes of Dan Barber of Blue Hill, Andrew Carmellini of Locanda Verde, Michael White of Marea, and Audrey Saunders of Pegu Club.

Cocktail Tweetup with Chartreuse and LUPEC NYC
Astor Center
November 2

The ladies of LUPEC (Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails) are at it again. This time, they’re inviting you to come taste Chartreuse and Chartreuse-inspired cocktails, as you help raise money for them and meet the city’s cocktail twitterati. LUPEC isn’t just about preserving cocktail culture; it also raises money for women-driven charities. So, have a yellow drink for a good cause.

Spit & Twit: Tasting the Future
City Winery
November 8

Cocktails aren’t the only tweet-friendly tipples out there. Find out what happens when the traditional world of wine meets today’s new media as Manhattan’s only winery hosts a fully interactive online wine tasting. Instead of scribbling your tasting notes, you’ll be encouraged to tweet them as you walk around, sipping and spitting. The tweet feed will be simulcast on screens around the room.
