Date: Friday, October 21st, 2016

Event: Project by Project’s ‘Plate By Plate’

Place: Metropolitan Pavilion

Cost: General Admission – $250

The Scoop:  More than 200 guests will mesh food and philanthropy during Friday evening’s 2016 Plate by Plate event.  Organized by nonprofit organization Project by Project (PbP) at the posh Metropolitan Pavilion, some of New York City’s finest restaurants like Toloache, Vai, Thalassa, Annisa and more will be surrounded by beers, sakes and spirits (Asahi Beer, Kikusui Sake, Tiger Beer, Suntory Whisky Toki) for a three hour tasting frenzy.  The organization works with a different charity partner each year as its beneficiary, from the tickets sold and from the incomparable array of silent auction items distributed.  This year’s net proceeds will benefit NQAPIA, National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance, a group that promotes visibility, develops leadership and challenges homophobia and racism in our communities. On those grounds alone, PbP is certainly worth attending – the food and drink are just icing on the cake.

Event: Thrillist Food Presents ‘Empire Oyster’

Place: Villain

Cost: General Admission – $75

The Scoop: One of Williamsburg’s most unique event spaces will be outfitted with empty shells and beer cups with the return of Thrillist’s Empire Oyster, a three hour feast that meshes New York restaurants and seafood dishes with beers from Blue Point Brewing Company.  Just $75 gets you inside the fun-filled affair for an afternoon that will surely beat out the most festive of bottomless brunch affairs.  Indulge in excellent eats from Swine, Schiller’s Liquor Bar, Seabird, Soju Haus and plenty more to be announced- alongside thousands and thousands of oysters from Lake Montauk to Kumamoto and everywhere in between.  Nobody throws a party like the folks at Thrillist and Saturday afternoon will be no different in the Burg!
