Wingfest NYC was held this past Saturday at a loft space in Chelsea. For your $55 ticket, you got three hours of all you could eat wings, and almost all you could drink whiskey and beer (they started to run out at the end). Check out the rest of the debauchery after the jump.

So once a year, the best street food vendors from New York City, as nominated by the people, congregate for a day of feasting, imbibing, and general foodie merriment. The festival takes place on the beautiful Governors Island, which is just a 5 minute, complimentary ferry ride off the southern tip of Manhattan. Food trucks, carts, and street vendors set up in an open field and represent nearly every corner of the globe. This was the biggest Vendy Awards yet, and there were over 20 vendor's on site. Check out the pictures of almost everything we ate (and we ate almost everything) after the jump.

Not only did the New York Jets host their first home game of the '12-'13 season on Saturday, but they also debuted their newest edition to gameday fare at Metlife Stadium. They're calling it Food Truck City and it's a collection of some of New York City's favorite food trucks. The trucks in attendance included Kelvin Natural Slush, Nuchas Empandas, and Rickshaw Dumpling (other favorites like Mexicue and Schnitzel and Things are planning on making appearances in the future). Check it out after the jump.

So it's been a long freaking time since I've updated BWAM, so let me start off by apologizing to you for not keeping up with the food porn pictures since I know that's really the only thing getting you here anyways. Now that I have that out of the way, let's get to the good stuff!
My brother is studying abroad this semester in Gold Coast, Australia - it's about an hour outside of Brisbane. So besides being on my travel bucket list, I had another reason to visit Australia, so my dad I went for about 10 days with our first stop in Sydney. We ate some fantastic meals along the way and you can check it all out after the jump.

So this past Sunday we found ourselves dining at our friends Emily and RJ's house and on the menu was stuffed chicken breast to be washed down with a couple bottles of wine. Since I didn't really do anything besides eat and drink, I thought it was only fair to let Emily talk about the food herself. Enjoy.
I’ve known Jason for over 10 years, and it’s always been my lifelong dream to cook him and his girlfriend
dinner so he can steal credit for his own blogging glory. Okay so half of that is true, but given the fact
that I’m lucky to live near some of my oldest and closest friends, I’ve tried to make a conscious effort to
see them more (at least outside of the bar).
And what better way to do that than to share my own love of cooking. So on a nice Sunday evening,
Jason and Lisa ventured to West New York (with 2 bottles of wine!) to spend a long overdue meal
catching up and trying out one of my fan-favorite dishes- Chicken stuffed with Basil, Mozzarella, and
wrapped in Prosciutto. The fresh basil leaves combined with melty cheese and the crispy prosciutto
do all the right things together. And when paired with a balanced red wine, fresh spinach salad with
balsamic and some warm roasted garlic bread, do I really need to sell you on this more? See how it’s
done after the jump.

|Mango glazed pork belly - indulge much?|
One recent Sunday, I found myself mildly hungover (one of the good kinds of hangovers, not the bad nauseating kinds) and my roommate, whom I usually share a bed with, was off to visit her parents. Let's all just take a moment to breathe and recognize what a wonderful time this was in my life...ahhhh. After a few glasses of water and a couple games of NBA2K12 on Xbox, I became painstakingly hungry. You know, to the point where your stomach feels like it is scourging through your intestines searching for any reminiscence of nutrients and despite being a middle-class yuppie, you have zero reservations about exclaiming "I'm starving," despite never missing a meal in your life. So I ventured off to the super market and did what they tell you to never do - go shopping while you're hungry. Thirty minutes later I was back in my kitchen with 1 lb. of cube steak (mistake - pun somewhat intended), 1.5 lbs. of pork belly (opposite of a mistake), an avocado, a red onion, cilantro, and a sesame seed roll. Like Captain Planet, the combined powers of all the ingredients created a wonderful, nearly super-hero like synergy that was only held back by the stupid cube steak - check out the results after the jump.

This past holiday weekend we were in southern California for the Bar and Bat Mitzvah of my twin cousins. Since it was the girlfriend's first time seeing the Pacific Ocean, we decided to rent a convertible (Ford Mustang - go America!) and head straight for the beach. We explored the Santa Monica Pier and then rented A SINGLE bike - no misprint there, we rented one tandem bike due to her inexcusable fear of riding a bike by herself - and rode down to Venice Beach to wander amongst the colorful locals. The beach - scratch one of the two essential items on our SoCal bucket list. Item numero dos - tacos. For authentic Mexican, I would commit treacherous acts, against even my own family, but LA county has plenty to offer, so there was no need to harm anyone. Fast forward through a windy scenic drive up the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu and we happened upon Howdy's Taqueria. Check out the food and pics after the jump.
