On April 25th, Nena and I have been invited to go into Manhattan after work to attend Windows on Long Island, one of the Long Island wine events each year.

The event is being held at Capitale in Manhattan. Tickets are $125 for regular admission and $250 per person  for  VIP tickets, which include a special preview hour and access to a VIP lounge where vintage wines will be poured. The main event is from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. with the VIP preview happening at 6 p.m. As a member of the press, I’ve been invited to arrive at 6:00 p.m.

Any of you other NYC foodies going?
