Last weekend, I had the opportunity to attend panel discussions and tastings at the New York Wine and Food Festival. The event lasted four days with net proceeds going to charity organization, No Kid Hungry. As a special treat for my husband, I took him to a Steak and Whiskey event at STK. It was a fun and indulgent weekend.
This week I attended a presentation by Norwegian Cruise Line to learn more about the new ship coming to the cruise terminal in Manhattan. The Norwegian Escape will begin routes from New York in the spring. I was one of a lucky few that were able to preview the entertainment, food and drinks (thanks to Voli Vodka) that will be available on the ship. Along woth company executives, Norwegian Cruise Line partner–the rapper Pitbull was there to greet guests and share news about his work with the cruise line. He also emphasized their joint charitable work to help victims of the recent hurricanes. It was an event full of fun and good energy.
