Ah, the weather is warming up and there have been some toasty things in town to match the heat for food lovers.
NYC nonprofit New York Foundling, one of NYC’s oldest and largest child welfare agencies, and City Winery combined forces on a custom-labeled 2017 rosé blend called, “We Are IntertWINED,” that was just released May 1st and is now available for purchase online until May 31st and is being poured at bars and restaurants across NYC.
The wine retails for $20 per bottle and a portion of wholesale and sales at partner locations will benefit The Foundling. Foster care is one of The Foundling’s primary services and as May is National Foster Care Awareness Month, it’s the perfect time for these two forces to combine raise a glass to helping kids in need. City Winery describes it as a sophisticated dry rosé, with ample stone fruit with white floral aromas and a crisp elegant finish.
“At City Winery, we’re committed to working with local nonprofits to raise funds and awareness for the contributions they’re making across our community. We are excited about our partnership with The New York Foundling, and to support them during National Foster Care Awareness Month,” said Michael Dorf, CEO of City Winery. “TheWe are Intertwined limited edition wine our team created is a sophisticated dry Rosé that is perfect for the spring and summer months.”
And, in case you haven’t heard, Chef Jeremy Salamon of The Eddy has been serving up deep-fried goodness in the form of Langos for about a year. Langos are savory doughnuts made and served on the streets of Hungary with a variety of toppings.
The East Village had a pop up spot for one day only to host a Langos. Sans table service, the restaurant offered Langos with various toppings, cocktails, and Zwack (Hungarian Amaro) ice cream sandwiches for folks to enjoy.
Happy eating and drinking this summer!
