A New York city farmers market full of tents and people walking around.

Thanks to POM Wonderful, I attended last night’s Share our Strength’s Taste of the Nation event here in Manhattan. The evening was a tasting from 50 of the best NYC restaurants serving everything from swanky cocktails and pork belly to red velvet Belgium waffles and a vast array of wines.

Our VIP tickets were unbelievable; I arrived at 7 PM sharp and started the maze through beautifully decorated tables filled with flowers, decorations and of course, delicious samplings of food and spirits.

My date was my beautiful Aunt Valerie with whom I had a fabulous time… we nibbled and sipped our way through the evening and received beautiful gift bags filled with fun foodie trinkets and treats.

I stumbled across some of my favorite Manhattan dining hot spots such as Eleven Madison Park, Rouge Tomate and Gramercy Tavern.

There were super adorable cute little shrimp skewers wrapped in spinach..

And the NYC Pretzels…

Adorable Chinese noodles…

And of course, mini cupcakes for dessert…

Thank you, again to POM Wonderful for these amazing VIP Taste of the Nation tickets… I had a wonderful evening.
