i have a friend who updates me on upcoming food events and it's wondeful. however, there must be more out there to be discovered. some annual events i love are atlantic antic, nyc bbq, chile pepper festival at the brooklyn botanical gardens and my bf loves the annual all you can eat oysters at doc's... but i'd love to add more food events to my calendar. preferably, because my jack russell loves to join us on our ventures, i am biased towards the outdoor events but all indoor/outdoor annual food event suggestions are welcome. i live in brooklyn and have a car, so i'm open to all recommendations that are in reasonable driving distance. thanks in advance.
