Last night I was invited by Tabélog to attend ‘Nipponista‘, an event hosted by Isetan, the largest department store in Japan. Nipponista is part of a Japanese project called ‘Cool Japan’ and was created to transmit Japanese fashion, art and food information throughout the world.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year and the Holiday Markets of New York City are here and in good cheer.
These markets set in outdoor and indoor spaces transform the landscape into a winter wonderful gifts and goodies.
I love trolling through interesting booths of beautiful artisan wares that are truly delightful and supporting small local artists.
Day two of the Holiday Hosting Party at the Kenmore Bloggers Summit 2013 began with two of my new blogger pals Marina and Beeb, who were just as crazy as me and wanted to walk the city at dawn to get some sights in! It was truly a beautiful way to experience the city in its early light and quietude.
After a quick breakfast we all headed back to the Kenmore Studio where an action packed day awaited. Little did we know how much fun was in store for us.
The place to be on Saturday, Sept. 28th, was Tang’s Natural NYC Dumpling Festival at Sara D. Roosevelt Park in Manhattan’s Lower East Side

Last night, I was invited to attend a media reception organized to celebrate the opening of The Holiday Shops at Bryant Park.
Every holiday season, Bryant Park is transformed into a vibrant hubbub of activity. This tree-lined space comes alive with twinkling lights, a skating rink and unique vendor booths. This holiday fair features more than 120 artisans and merchants selling one-of-a-kind merchandise that promises to make for exciting holiday gifts.
The Lower East Side was really hopping today with New York Magazines Grub Street Food Festival at the Hester Street Fair. This food festival offered up a smorgasbord of some 70-plus-food vendors who were selling everything from lobster rolls to lollipop cupcakes.
Along with all the great food there were some amazing vendors selling their merchandise. Of course my very favorite booth was Pages of My Life Journal , where we were selling our beautiful gratitude journals for women and children.
As a foodie, I find the Lower East Side so charming. Quaint little food shops and restaurants are popping up all over the place and I for one just love to explore it all.
One of my most interesting recent finds was the Hester Street Fair located at Hester and Essex Street.
The Hester Street Fair is a brand new street fair, which is modeled on the Brooklyn Flea. At this hip little market one can find everything from macarons to men’s shirts!
DUMBO was alive with the festive smells and tastes of Asia, as the Lucky Rice Festival 2010 held it’s Night-Market event under the archway of the Manhattan bridge.
There were Asian food vendors galore, dishing out yummy samples of their tasty treats to foodies who flooded the event. A lot of the samplings were of street foods that are available at the popular night markets in Asia.
I really enjoyed this event. It was well organized and intimate. Read the rest of this entry
Guess what I had tickets for this past week?
We reached around 6:15PM for the event which began at 6:30 PM for the Non-VIP ticket holders (that’s me!!). The line was wrapped around an entire Manhattan city block!!!! It took us almost an hour to reach the entrance! Of-Course I spent the entire hour worrying that there would be no food left for me……Boy was I wrong!
Once we were in……….the ultimate fest in gluttony began! Read the rest of this entry
