NYC Dining Event Summary: Share Our Strength (UPDATED)


The Share Our Strength: Taste of the Nation event for New York City was held at the Roseland Ballroom last night, right in the heart of the theater district. It was a massive event, hosting some 2000 (or more) people. NYC’s top restaurants and chefs, along with a number of premium liquor and beverage vendors fed a hungry and thirsty crowd and advancing the worthy cause of fighting child hunger.

The room was very dark, and I had to use flash and post processing for a lot of these pictures, so please excuse the quality.

One Response to NYC Dining Event Summary: Share Our Strength (UPDATED)

  1. The response level to local and national disasters is noble but it’s a real shame that so many citizens take advantage of the sad situations.

    I mean everytime there is an earthquake, a flood, an oil spill – there’s always a group of heartless people who rip off tax payers.

    This is in response to reading that 4 of Oprah Winfreys “angels” got busted ripping off the system. Shame on them!
