Have You Bought Your 2013 Choice Eats Tickets Yet?

Dirt Candy Cotton Candy 
I know it's only January...but March is right around the corner and in the NYC food world that means time for the annual Village Voice Choice Eats. They just announced the third round of participating restaurants--they're up to 35 so far with more on the horizon and I'm willing to bet that before all the restaurants are named this event will be totally sold out...

The VIP tickets for the 6th Annual Choice Eats sold out in a record thirty minutes. Thirty minutes people! And they only have a limited number of general admission tickets left. Here's who's coming so far...

606 R&D
Black Shack Burger
Bobwhite Lunch and Supper Counter
Brooklyn Cured
Brooklyn Kolache
Butter and Scotch
Del Posto
Dirt Candy
Ditch Plains
Fletcher's Brooklyn Barbecue
Jimmy's No. 43
Joe Dough
John Brown Smokehouse
Kaia Wine Bar
Kuma Inn
Lucky 777 Chili
Luke's Lobster
Mable's Smokehouse & Banquet Hall
Maima's Liberian Bistro

  Robicelli's Cupcake 

 And here are the details. This year's event will be held Tuesday, March 19, 2013 from 6:30 - 9:30 PM at the 69th Armory on Lexington Avenue. General Admission tickets are $50 and include "complimentary food and dessert tasting, craft beer pairings, wine & liquor beverages, and entertainment throughout the night." Also, in addition to "Eats" you get "Choice Sweets" tasty dessert morsels from some of the best spots in the city. A portion of the ticket sales go to Slow Food NYC.

For a food event in the city on this scale with this much good food (and booze), it's seriously a no-brainer. You will get your money's worth. Click here for tickets before they sell out and you're stuck buying pricey scalped ones on Craigslist.

Organic food comes with real health benefits and significant costs.
It IS possible to buy practically only "organic food" even on a small budget.
