Weekend Fun!

As if the Veggie Calendar didn't have enough goodies, here are a few more fun things happening in the city this weekend:

Friday, November 13th

Eco-Conscious Cocktails - 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the Astor Center, 300 Lafayette Street, $75. Put a new spin on a classic Friday night by sampling organic spirits and mixing cocktails- you can feel good about saying "Bottoms up!" Well, maybe not the morning after.

Sunday, November 15th

The Brooklyn Chocolate Experiment- 1pm to 5pm at The Bell House, 149 7th Avenue, $25 at door.  Brooklyn sure loves it's food throwdowns, and when they involve chocolate, I love them even more! Amateurs take their shot at glory in a chocolate recipe contest, with both sweet and savory dishes. Free Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream afterparty to follow.

Monday, November 16th

Toast With Hot Bread Kitchen- 6pm to 9pm at Chelsea Market, 75 9th Ave, $50 advance tix. Technically it's no longer the weekend, but start your work week in a toasty way with this fundraiser for Hot Bread Kitchen Bakers, which assists immigrant women in obtaining culinary jobs. Enjoy wine, baking demos, and goodies from Bar Boulud.
