News flash: tickets to the annual New York City Wine & Food Festival are on sale starting today. Now in its fifth year, the city-wide collection of culinary events will take over town from October 11 to 14. Yeah, that's pretty far of on the calendar, but these are hot tickets and you don't want to be left standing outside Burger Bash begging people for their wrist band as they exit (yes, we've witnessed this). In addition to the bash there is Meatball Madness, Tacos and Tequila, a pastry chef cook off and plenty of other gut-busting shindigs. To get your tickets and see the schedule, head to nycwff.org or call 866-969-2933.
