Returning this year from last years launch, the Queens Night Market summons the foodie crowd out to Corona, arguably the heart of the original NYC food scene. While hovering over Peruvian, Dominican, Indian, Ecuadorian and Irish neighborhoods while on the 7 train, ready those tastebuds for a similar cultural explosion of food, drink and sometimes music. Jump off at the 111th St. station and head to towards Hall of Science parking lot. Don’t miss the shark sandos, chicken fried bacon and fresh Ecuadorian juices. Starting April 23rd on Saturdays from 6PM-Midnight @ New York Hall of Science in Queens.

It might have been a rough night and you have a huge presentation today. No problem. The Hangover Club has you covered with IV Hangover Therapy. They even make house calls so no need to reroute your morning commute. A certified nurse will show up in as little as 45 minutes with 1000ml+ of feel better juice. As it pushes through your veins and heals your aches you can double down with a vitamin boost. 30 minutes later you are done and ready to kill that presentation.
In a Brooklyn world we love to see Queens getting it’s fair share of glory. After all, we think Queens has a lot more range than Brooklyn’s artisanal, reclaimed wood, farm to table world of new. (Not haters…Just sayin’) Check out what we mean this weekend in Sunnyside with a few tastes from countries you probably forgot had such a strong food culture. Tuesday, May 19 – 5:30pm-8:30pm.
You’ve heard the names Joey Chesnut and Kobayashi for years. Their world series is pounding down hot dogs in the bottom of the BK on July 4th for Nathan’s 2016 Hot Dog Eating Contest. You should go watch it. It looks something like the above just live and in crazy motion. I promise you’ve never seen people eat food this fast. I’d suggest getting yourself a dog prior to the madness because after you see how they dip and slurp those poor wieners you might be of mind to skip the Nathan’s famous. Good news is, there is plenty more to do down in Coney Island pre and post eat off. Make a day. Hang old school Brooklyn style. 12 noon on July 4th in Brooklyn.
This Oyster Festival is near and dear to my childhood heart. I learned how to swim with oysters under my feet. Since I was 10 his festival, named after the bi-valve and the town I grew up in, has taken over the small North Shore Long Island village. Back then, a few buses of people would amount to 10,000 people over the three-day extravaganza. Now in its 32nd year, 200, 000 attendees flock to what was my sleepy hamlet on the bay. It’s fair to call it BIG TIME. The food vendors now require a food court. There’s a seafood themed shopping pavilion. Music is no longer sourced from the high school band talent. Of course, there are plenty of competitive eating bouts. Most oysters, fastest oysters, biggest oysters, they all get prizes and make for some crowd roars. Being an insider, I tend to hang back. Belly up at one spot and let the action unfold around me. Give it a try. October 15 – 16 Weekend in Oyster Bay, NY.
