Village Voice Choice Eats sold out

If you don't have tickets, start crying in your napkins now.

The second annual Village Voice Choice Eats tasting event is now officially sold out.  The event,  Tuesday, March 31, 2009 at the 69th Regiment Armory in Manhattan, features only restaurants reviewed by celebrated resident food critics, Robert Sietsema from his column “Counter Culture” and Sarah DiGregorio from her weekly column “Fork in the Road.”

Ticketless New Yorkers will be missing over 50 restaurants and over 25 nations represented under one roof for only one night. New York Magazine proclaimed it “…a global cheap-eats summit. No self-respecting New York gastronaut should consider doing anything else that night."

Choice Eats benefits Slow Food NYC, who hosts the event.  The non-profit, member-supported organization is dedicated to counteracting the industrialization of our food supply.

A portion of ticket sales goes to their new program, Harvest Time, promoting good food and nutrition education, including hands-on food preparation and communal dining, edible school gardens, and student operated farm stands offering local farm-fresh produce at three schools in East Harlem and Williamsburg, neighborhoods identified  by the City's Health Department as food deserts, with high rates of food related diseases like obesity and diabetes.
