Things to Do in New York City for Fall 2013
Summer has come and gone but there are still a lot of things to look forward to. Here is our list of things to do in New York City for Fall 2013. As always we would love to hear about anything we missed and anything that we should check out. You can do that via our Twitter or Facebook pages.
Get tickets for the New York City Wine & Food Festival
Food Network’s New York City Wine & Food Festival (October 17-20) is a great opportunity to try all sorts of interesting dishes from all the powerhouses in the foodie world. There are events all over New York City and some of the feature chefs include Bobby Flay, Mario Batali and Guy Fieri.
Try a slice of pumpkin pie at PJ Clarke’s – 915 3rd Ave & Other Locations
Here at Ahoy New York we have heard PJ Clarke’s makes a delicious pumpkin pie served with cinnamon whipped cream. It is only available only in the fall and we can’t wait to try it this year!
Pick up some apple tarts at Once Upon A Tart – 135 Sullivan St
There is never a better time for a scrumptious apple tart than during the classic apple picking season! Our favorite bakery for such tarts is Once Upon A Tart. Their tart really enhances and brings out the natural flavors and sweetness of apples. The crust is amazing and the apples are always super fresh.
Get a cup of apple cider from Magnolia Bakery – 1240 Ave of the Americas & Other Locations
To go with your apple tarts, how about some apple cider? You can get a great cup of apple cider, served hot or cold, at Magnolia Bakery. It probably won’t hurt to pick up one of their signature cupcakes too…
Sample beers at Brooklyn Pour New York Craft Beer Festival 2013 – 1 Hanson Place, Brooklyn
The annual Brooklyn Pour New York Craft Beer Festival 2013 (October 12) features over 100 craft beers and it is a must for any beer enthusiast. General admissions tickets are $50 and VIP tickets are $80.
Attend the NYC Food Film Festival
NYC Food Film Festival (October 23- 27) is a five day festival that pairs foodie flicks with first class dining so you can taste what you see. So while watching The Kings of BBQ you can actually sample some of their BBQ. We are salivating at the possibilities and suspect that you will too!
Check out the New Amsterdam Market
The New Amsterdam Market at the Old Fulton Fish Market near Pier 17 has almost everything a foodie would ever want or need. It is open once a month for the Fall season (October 27, November 24 & December 15). There are number of local businesses selling the freshest meats, breads, cheeses, etc. While you are at it, you can also pick up lunch from food stalls such as Luke’s Lobster and Lonestarr Taco.
