Last night foodies from all corners of the 5 boroughs gathered together to mingle and nibble on the some of the city’s top eats to raise funds for Slow Food NYC at the Village Voice’s Sixth Annual Choice Eats at the 69th Regiment Armory. Joonbug, for one, should’ve went with a better plan instead of trying to eat everything in sight. We don’t recommend eating Liberian, brownies, ramen noodles, halibut ceviche, and sweet shrimp rolls in the same sitting but we absolutely don’t regret it either. In an otherwise impossible feat in a 3-hour time frame, Choice Eats allowed foodies to sample foods that may have been outside of their comfort zone and not within the reaches of their neighborhood.
This weekend is a big holiday weekend with Easter on Sunday and a lot of fun activities being planned throughout the city. Aside from Easter egg hunts and chocolate bunnies, a very important Jewish Holiday is just around the corner.
For those of you who are not familiar with this religious holiday, Passover celebrates and remembers the story of Exodus, in which the Israelites were freed from slavery in ancient Egypt. This year, the holiday begins on the evening of Friday, April 6th and ends on Saturday, April 14th.
