Looking back on the fall as we get ready to jump into the holidays!

The Funnest Foodiest Time of Year!

I know that Thanksgiving is considered to be the holy holiday of food. It is a day in which we, Americans, are to sit down with our family and friends and whatever others you've invited to the table and break bread or just consume broken bread in the form of stuffing. There aren't traditionally any gift exchanges going on, but of course the last few years has seen the consumer madness known as Black Friday turn into a whole week-long event that includes our beloved Turkey Day. But I'm not going to rant about that--enough people in the world do, and it's got little to do with the food part of things. Instead I just wanted to say that I'm thankful for this whole season.

Sure, it's a cray time of year--especially for someone who works in the hospitality business. This is the craziest time! But it's also, often the most fun time! Especially in New York City! Thanksgiving was the beginning (or if you're young enough to appreciate a party night, I suppose Thanksgiving Eve was the start for you--but I was busy battling a chest cold to be drinking all night). We have the parade  here, which of course most New Yorkers enjoy just like the rest of the country--from the comfort of their own homes. And then the many drinking establishments that are open to comfort you after you day of family dealings.

And then you hit December, and tonight we start the many festivities that will take us through the Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanza/New Year's season!

Tonight, I'll be trying my best to head down to the Upper West Side for the 15th annual Winter's Eve event! There's always so much to see and do, and I suggest getting there early as the crowds to come and the food will run out! You know if I'm there, there's tasty food on hand, but there's also tons of music, and plenty of festive fun!

Tomorrow, I'll be back in the Lincoln Square area as it is the first day of the Columbus Circle Holiday Market! And as I take my Festive Food & Holiday Fun tour there, I've gotta scout out the best food that the market has to offer!

Course, Wednesday starts the madness of the holiday party season and so I'll be going back and forth between Holiday Tours and Holiday Parties. The Fall tours are now over, except for one this weekend--so if you're interested on checking out the last Fall Tour of 2014, book today there are only 8 slots left! Of course, if you're more into the holiday spirit then you can come along on the holiday tour anytime after tomorrow! 

I hope to see you soon!

It's Beginning to Look a lot Like A Business!

Fall is almost OVER!

Exciting things are happening at Fun Foodie NYC!! So I'm sorry I haven't had the time to give you a rundown on Foodie activities each week as I wish I could, but if things keep moving at this pace, perhaps I'll be able to hire some extra help to get me back on track!

Anyway, first thing's first: ONLY ONE WEEK LEFT of the Falling for Hell's Thailand Tour! This final week we have special tours with a couple of Thanksgiving-themed items! You don't want to miss out on this great tour with rich history and delicious bites! It's now or...next year! I'll point out that this coming Saturday is SMALL Business Saturday...and it doesn't get smaller than this!

But if you can't make it to the Hell's Kitchen tour, then you can at least get an idea of what your missing, as my new ad is complete for my Yelp page! And the tour that we captured was the Hell's Kitchen tour. Of course I think it's a great representation of the kind of experience you can expect from all of my tours. Check out the video here or on my Yelp page. And of course, if you've been on a tour please feel free to leave me a review there!

Thanksgiving the NY way!

And continuing on with the multimedia presence for Fun Foodie NYC, I did my first ever podcast this past Sunday! My good friend, Adriane Hamilton and her comedian buddies do a weekly podcast and asked me to join in for their all Food episode in honor of T-day! I had so much fun on the show that I hope to be back again soon! You can check out the episode on the Empty Party Podcast site. PS....there's a discount offer made to the listeners, so LISTEN IN!!

What comes next week? The HOLIDAY TOUR! If you're looking for some things to do with the family send them my way! This was my very first tour as anew company, and I'm so excited to be offering it again! I would love to have you check it out and I guarantee you we'll have fun and EAT well!! Trust me when I say that this tour is great for everyone who enjoys eating and the great lights of NYC's holiday center!

I'm also working on some private tours for guests in December, so if that's something that you think you might enjoy as well please feel free to contact me directly for more information.

The time for gingerbread is upon us!
