A Sarcastic Appetite

I canvass the food blogs so you don’t have to. This week’s focus: food & wine related things in the city this weekend for those of you who aren’t skipping town.

New York mag just came out with their list of Places to Drink 2009; if you’re like I am, you’ve got a boozy To-Do list that just got a little longer – not that I have any qualms about that.

Chelsea Wine Vault has a free tasting from 4-7 today, plus a Winemaker Series tonight on Bodega Septima, a nice Mendoza, for only $20.

Via the Eater Dealfeed: kick off the weekend with a recession-friendly lunch tomorrow at Almond, which has a new deal for Summer Fridays, from 1:30 to 6pm: 3-piece shrimp cocktail, a burger, and a Blue Point Summer Ale or a Caipirinha for $21.

Water Taxi Beach v. 2.0 opens Saturday night at 10pm at South Street Seaport. Grub Street has the menu.

As usual, TastingTable has a nice little round-up of weekend events – including the all-you-can-eat-and-drink Crawfish Boil on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $60 (no door sales).

Free food never goes out of style – or not in this economy, anyway. AMNY has a round-up of free bites in the city, most of which come gratis when you fork over cash for a drink.

Go see the Mets take on the Nationals Monday night and get the Kosher Pastrami Dog while you’re at it.

Oh, yeah, and if somehow you weren’t already aware…it’s Fleet Week.
