NYC’s most well-known restaurants, food trucks, and chefs all congregate in the park, set up in different booths to show off their culinary excellence.

The Smith Street Classic opened this week and is running all month until October 30th.
Check out the month long cocktail challenge, featuring 4 bars on Smith Street in Brooklyn. Buy tickets online for $35 and you can be the judge of the challenge. Each bar will create a signature cocktail for your enjoyment, and once you’ve tasted each cocktail you will have the chance to vote for your favorite! The winning bartender will be announced in November. 20% of proceeds will go to Robin Hood Relief Fund Sandy Relief for New York. Be charitable and a judge all while enjoying great cocktails!
Jason Bard Yarmosky: Dream of the Soft Look opens this weekend at Bertrand Delacroix Gallery at 535 W 25th St.
At his solo exhibition, you will find some of Jason Bard Yarmosky’s amazing portraits of his grandparents. The paintings look so real, you have to get pretty close to realize that they are not photographs. The idea behind his “Dream of the Soft Look” is giving his grandparents a whimsical look, portraying how they feel on the inside. His paintings are fun and intricately detailed, so go enjoy his sentimental pieces!
