Second Annual NYC Food Film Festival
CHEESESTEAK PARTY

Second Annual NYC Food Film Festival

We aren't crazy about foodie festivals, but they're kicking things off with a cheesesteak party at LIC's Water Taxi Beach, which is enough to lure us across the river. Also, we imagine there will be films of some kind.

SATURDAY AFTERNOON FRENCH BOWLING

Pitstop's Petanque Tournament

Scotch and Steak Pairings at Strip House
