Just heard about two eating events. Meet the Chefs on Downing and Carmine. $25 gets you tastes from 5 area restaurants (including Blue Ribbon, AOC, 28 Carmine), meet the chefs and pizza demos. 9/17. Oyster Frenzy at Grand Central oyster bar. $80 gets you all the oysters you can eat from 15 varieties(I can do 5 dozen easy) and all the wine you can drink plus other hors d'oeuvres and live music. 9/29. These are annual events. Anybody go in the past? Sounds good to me.
