New York City Wine & Food Festival 2013 - Grand tasting.

As a blogger, I get invited to a lot of cool events. My most recent event was dinner at the NoMad rooftop hosted by Buick. With this being my first event hosted solely by a car company, I was very interested to hear how Buick would be incorporating themselves into the food world. Dinner at the NoMad was a great start. With a quick presentation from Buick, which is known to be a entry level luxury American sedan lineup, I started to understand exactly how they are integrating themselves into the food world. Whether you're going out for a nice dinner or to the farmers market to pick up a few things for dinner, you need transpiration. Why not get there in luxury and comfort and still have a little extra cash in your pocket for that midnight snack. 

Another great way that Buick is integrating themselves into the food world is as a sponsor of the 2013 New York City Food and Wine Festival - a four day food festival with proceeds benefiting No Kid Hungry and The Food Bank For New York City. Buick was also nice enough to give me a pair of tickets to the Grand Tasting. A warehouse that once held machinery and army supplies was now filled with seventy-five plus food and drink vendors catering to thousands of food lovers. Here's my quick recap of the food filled afternoon.
