This year's Toast of the Town, hosted by Wine Enthusiast, will be held at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center, with an opportunity to taste over 500 wines, beers, & spirits. Though a liquid diet is more than acceptable, 35 unique NYC dishes from 35 restaurants will be showcased, as well -- including tasty morsels from such hot spots as db Bistro Moderne, BLT Fish, Bar Basque, and Plein Sud. The event is from 7-10PM on Thursday, May 5, but VIP ticket holders can arrive as early 6PM for some one-on-wine time with wine makers before the crowd thickens at 7 o'clock.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit RiverKeeper, New York's clean water advocate. Representatives from Global Giving will also be onsite to collect donations for relief efforts in Japan. Click on the banner below for tickets and more information.
