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.
