Not without regret, I passed on my volunteer evening at the Great World Brew Fest, which opened tonight from 8 PM - 12 AM. It looked like a promising event so I will look forward to hearing comments from anyone who may attend in the next two days.
I am still on for my much anticipated volunteer commitment at the Food Network's Wine and Food Festival, beginning with set-up early in the week and hopefully a few additional evening events on the weekend. Even though a departure from the theme of the blog, I plan on keeping everyone well up-to-date on my experiences working for the Food Bank of New York City. If it's anything like last year, the next week will be one to remember.
