Foodie Friday: A Foodie’s New Year!

NYE ToastThis week our resident foodie Patrick is taking some time off with his family so I’m filling in. I, unfortunately, am not the well-spring of delicious recipes that Patrick is so I’ve decided to focus on Foodie friendly New Years Eve events coming up around the country on Monday, December 31.

I’m sure all of you are sick of cooking anyway after Christmas. New Years is a perfect time to relax, let someone else do the cooking, have a few cocktails (or “mock” tails) and reflect on another year gone by. On this list, we got seafood in Seattle, Bolivian cuisine in San Francisco, Asian barbecue in Chicago, craft beer in Houston, southern food in DC and a whiskey pairing dinner in the Big Apple.
