The word Gluttony is derived from the Latin gluttire meaning to gulp down or swallow, means over-indulgence and over-consumption of food, drink, or wealth items to the point of extravagance or waste.

Gluttony is almost a competition in the New York Events office when it comes to eating (we’re not kidding).  So, when we heard about The Village Voice’s 9th Annual Choice Eats Tasting Event, we signed up and got our tickets immediately!

While this is not our first rodeo with the Village Voice, we never expect anything as we’re always surprised by their events.  Their latest announcement was for The 11 new restaurants announced today include: Ample Hills Creamery, Calle Dao, Doughnut Plant, Egg, El Quinto Pino, Emmy Squared, Genuine Superette, ilili Restaurant, Robicelli’s, Victory Garden, and Xe May Sandwich Shop.

Did you just say ‘YUM!’?!  Yes, we heard that! We’re all food critics these days. Living in New York’s culinary landscape, we’re exposed to everything and anything.  Choice Eats has the fix for our palate with a very diverse group of New Yorkers who come to feast on cuisines from over 35 nations, including Vietnamese, Italian, Uzbekistani, Brazilian, Cambodian, Russian, Tunisian, Greek and Cajun/Creole among many others.

This year’s Choice Eats will feature three tiers of ticket options – General Admission tickets ($70), Early Entry tickets ($85) and VIP tickets ($99). All guests will sample the best dishes from restaurants reviewed and heralded in the Voice along with complimentary craft beer pairings, wine and liquor beverages. The Early Entry ticket will allow guests to get a half hour head start on tasting and sipping. The VIP ticket will allow guests admission to the full event one hour early, with access to a private VIP Lounge that will feature a private bar, restrooms, snacks, and an exclusive VIP gift bag per person.

Can’t wait to see you there.  We’ll be the ones talking with our mouths full!
