We happen to have two free tickets to the April 29th opening night cocktail party at the Bowery Hotel for the LuckyRice Festival, a two-week celebration of Asian food and food culture here in the city. (We’ll pick a winner at random from those who sign up for our enewsletter today.)
The party will feature food and drinks from plenty of rock stars (Momofuku, Fatty Crab, Wd-50, Freemans, Dutch Kills, the Pegu Club, Prime Meats) and the festival features demos, dinners, lectures, cocktail parties and grand feasts that are a who’s-who lineup of chefs who know their way around the elements of Asian cooking: David Chang, Eric Ripert, Zak Pelaccio, Floyd Cardoz, Anita Lo, Susur Lee, Pichet Ong, Masaharu Morimoto, and the list goes on and on. Really: You should check the roster of events and those running them right here.
If you buy the passport to the whole shindig, BTW, you get a now ticket to the sold out Night Market tasting event hosted by David Chang under the Manhattan Bridge in Dumbo on May 30.
