      EDIBLE EVENTS THIS WEEK: Dessert with a(n Entrepreneurial) Twist

      Hungry? Our events calendar is packed full of Edible events around the city, like this crazy delicious dessert popup where you can learn how to launch a food startup while enjoying cool treats like cherry pomegranate ice pops, black sesame ice cream, raspberry cilantro sorbet, and mango-laced soft serve–all to benefit Wellness in Schools. Here’s what else is happening this week.

      Meet Your Maker in Photos

      We’re still coming down from our Eat Drink Local Week buzz (Without the ingredients of the week, what will we eat??) and reminiscing about our favorite events. For one of them–Meet Your Maker–we teamed up with the Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn Winery and NY Distilling Co. for behind-the-scenes tours of their facilities and learned how some of our favorite local beer, wine and spirits are made.

      Today Williamsburg’s Natural Wine Company Turns One; Tonight They’re Throwing a Party

      It is very cool to see more and more natural-skewed wine shops popping up around Gotham, and one of the great, new entries into that wonderful world of pesticide kickin’, natural-yeast lovin’, environment coaxin’ versatile vinous offerings is Billyburg’s one and only Natural Wine Company at 211 North 11th Street. NWC is celebrating their First Year Anniversary tonight (woot-woot!), and in honor of this auspicious occasion are pouring some pretty fabulous and fun celebratory bottles.
