When Whiskey and Food Come Together, Everybody Wins

first_img When Whiskey and Food Come Together, Everybody Wins Close To add to the revelry, Whiskey Feast featured a live DJ, spin art (who doesn’t like pretending to be a kid while getting mildly intoxicated?), a photo booth, and, the pièce de résistance: a doughnut wall.Yeah, you heard me. An entire wall made of doughnuts (which were supplied by Underwest Doughnuts). The hard part was not finding the doughnut wall, nor appreciating its beauty. The hardest part was deciding which flavor of doughnut to take.If cocktails weren’t your thing, they also had straight pours of various whiskeys, including Four Roses and Wyoming Whiskey.At the end of the day, the ultimate winners were as follows:People’s Choice Dish: NatwerksPeople’s Choice Cocktail: The Passage, AstoriaBest Cocktail: Queens BullyBest Dish: RahiHonorable Mention: Tipsy ScoopStaff’s Pick: Wowfulls and Beehive Oven Biscuit CafeNow, if you haven’t already, check out our video recap of the event above (and salivate over that doughnut wall. Seriously.) How to Make a Blood and Sand Cocktail A few months ago, we got to spend a day eating our way around Citi Field while also judging beers at the Bacon and Beer Classic. It was pretty freakin’ sweet. (If you missed it, check it out here!) That experience was why we jumped at the chance to attend Whiskey Feast, a new project from the creators of BBF.Whiskey Feast was a one-day event in November that brought together a variety of restaurants and bars from across New York City to compete against each other in the cocktail and small bites categories. Held at Hudson Terrace, feast-goers were able to eat and drink till their heart’s content (or they were full, either/or).

It is intended to test and improve the accuracy of the company’s database.“The meter is our tool to measure the customers’ consumption, so we need to have that accurate information in our database to make sure that what we have is what is out there and vice versa. Basically, what we are trying to do is go door to door and ensure the accuracy of the information out there to match it with the information we have in our database…Customer information such as meter numbers, the location of the meter, which building it’s servicing, get a feeling if the meter is an older meter or a newer meter, if the meter needs to change and that kind of thing,” La Fargue told the Department of Public Information (DPI).La Fargue added that personnel conducting the survey will be identified by uniforms and badges. She also said customers can call telephone number 226-2600 extension 1520, to verify the identity of the person who visits their premises. Customers may also visit the company’s website and Facebook page for photographs and names of personnel contracted to carry out the verification exercise.“All the staff is required is to do is to be pointed in the direction of your meter. Everything they need to do will be executed at the meter. This includes recording the meter’s number. If you have a prepaid meter, then please, have your Customer Interactive Unit (CIU) at hand. There is no need for them to come into your homes to check out your wiring and stuff like that. The bulk of the work is done at the meter,” she explained.The survey is funded by the power company and data collected will be used to improve the efficiency with which service is provided to customers by the utility company which is currently undertaking major upgrades in its distribution network. GPL encourages customers to give their full cooperation to its personnel.The last countrywide survey and update of GPL’s database were conducted in 2014. read more
