However NOT in Queens, every once in a while we need to give props to a really cool event happening elsewhere. The New York Wine and Food Festival is going on October 8 – 11th and has tons of events for kids ranging from butter making to making sushi. The events are like mini classes and last about an hour. The cost is between $10 – $15, practically pennies for any Manhattan event. The only catch is you have to reserve tickets in advance and the classes fill up fast. My point…go there now and reserve your tickets.
