A taste of LIC at the Park

Posted on 6/4/2014 by New Yorker  

Last night, food lovers from all boroughs braved the elements and made their way to Hunter’s Point South neighboring Gantry Plaza State Park to sample what LIC has to offer. For the 9th time, the Chocolate Factory Theater presented the annual Taste of LIC festival featuring food and beverage tastings from 50+ restaurants and auction and raffle prizes courtesy of 100 local businesses.

Sheltered from the rain by 900 sq ft tents, visitors sampled the culinary treats from neighborhood eateries like Alewife, M. Wells Dinette, Casa Enrique, Testaccio, Blend on the Water and COFFEED. 
The event also included a performance of the Sunnyside/Woodside Girl Scouts choreographed by Madeline Best. Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer served as Master of Ceremonies and among the guests of honor were Borough President Melinda Katz, state Senator Michael Gianaris, Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney and Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan. 
All proceeds will go toward The Chocolate Factory’s 2014-2015 season of dance, theater, music and multimedia performances.
