It’s time to start putting on a few extra pounds to keep us nice and warm for the upcoming chilly fall and winter seasons. We here at Socially Superlative are kicking off the eating season right at the 2013 New York City Wine and Food Festival.

This year the #NYCWFF is taking place from Thursday, October 17th through Sunday, October 20th, featuring tons of events all around the city for both food and drink enthusiasts.

Better yet, all proceeds from the Festival benefit the Food Bank For New York City and Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign.
