The Village Voice's 'Choice Eats' Event

Kampuchea noodle bar pork gyoza Piselli panna cotta!
Some foods. Previously eaten.

If my brain were less stupid I would've mentioned Choice Eats, the Village Voice's food fest featuring 30+ restaurants picked by Robert Sietsema (meaning that they cover all kinds of cuisines and many are probably awesome) earlier. Because it's on March 11th (this coming Tuesday) from 6:30 to 10:30 and advance tickets have already sold out. You can buy them at the door for $35 (although I'm not sure how limited those tickets are) or you can try to win a pair from Ed Levine.

So why am I mentioning it now even though tickets are mostly gone and I've had this press release since the end of January? Besides that I don't really post press releases, I figured that in the possibility that you're walking near the Puck Building on Tuesday night with a rumbling belly, now you know that you can pony up $35 and eat shittons of food and drink buckets of booze. Okay, maybe not that much, but I suspect there will be pleeeenty of goodies for you to stuff your face with.

If I thought I could eat $35 worth of food, I think I'd go. I mean, it's worth it when you have that many restaurants at your fingertips, but at the same time I can't really enjoy food if my stomach is so engorged that it feels like it's pressing against all my other vital organs, my lungs in particular. Out of the list of participating restaurants, here are the ones that I've been to:

Damn, I have a lot of work to do.

John: HAHA...oops...

I would hope 5 is early enough! Eek! If you get in, let me know how it goes. :)

Serena: Aha, some people appreciate my advertising! ;) You'll also have to let me know how it goes!

Hey, it was an amazing experience. almost 1k people in 2 huge rooms. Everything is a blur and I have no idea everything I ate - and I ate EVERYTHING. I need a photoblog or something to help.

I didnt drink anything, only water. I didnt wnat to waste any room in my stomach with beer.

Cool site though. I like it a lot.

Jeff: It's hard to take notes when you're eating loads of stuff. Which is why I take photos, but then...even then I can't remember everything, or I forget to take a photo of something. OH THE FUN OF FOOD BLOGGING!!

Thanks for stopping by my site! I like your URL. It speaks the truth.
