- $75 for one ticket to the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival’s Hot Dog Happy Hour event hosted by Mo Rocca on Friday October 17 from 5-7 p.m. at The Standard, High Line
Mo Rocca— host of “My Grandmother’s Ravioli” on the Cooking Channel and CBS correspondent—will celebrate one of America’s most iconic snacks at a Groupon-exclusive hot dog tasting. Guests can expect to sample classic mustard-slathered franks from Walter’s Hot Dogs in Mamaroneck as well as more contemporary takes on the hot dog, such as Asiadog’s kimchi- and curry-smothered fusion creations. Bartenders will sling wine and beer from Southern Wine & Spirits as the party spills from beneath the Standard Biergarten shaded by the High Line into the adjoining Garden Rooms.
Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival Presented by FOOD & WINE
At Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE's events, culinary experts share some of their favorite things to eat and sip. Many of NYCWFF's hosts are acclaimed chefs with beloved television shows: attendees may rub elbows with the likes of Rebel Eats' Justin Warner and Andrew Zimmern of Bizarre Foods . At the festival's Groupon-exclusive events, they can also broaden their palates through a range of experiences, including tastings, cocktail parties, and gourmet food fights between celebrity chefs. It's for a good cause, too: 100% of the NYCWFF's net proceeds go directly to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign and Food Bank For New York City.
