Björn & Company will kick off the summer season with the fourth annual Forks, Corks & Cocktails—a food, wine and cocktails event serving the LGBTQ community of Westchester and Lower Hudson Valley—taking place on Friday, May 5 from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Ritz-Carlton Westchester, located at 3 Renaissance Square in White Plains.
Voted The Best LGBTQ Initiative by Westchester Magazine, the lineup is set and the talented chefs are eager to #GetForkd. Returning to Forks, Corks & Cocktails 2017 are Polpettina, Cedar Street Grill, The Dessertist, Roc-n-Ramen, Coriander Modern Indian, Mason Sandwich Co., and more. Björn & Company is also excited to welcome BLT Steak, DeCicco & Sons, Simply Hailee, and the Food Network show “Cooks vs. Cons” contender Chef Jessica Woodford to the family of chefs and vendors, among many more. Seasonal wines sponsored by Via OneHope Wine and Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits, and cocktails are sponsored by the award winning Anestasia Vodka and beverage partner Voss Water.
The range of talent and cuisine is very exciting for event founder and creative director of Björn & Company. “This is our fourth year and the level of support has been overwhelming. This truly is a community event,” he said. With just a week until the big night, Björn VW promises more announcements to be made. “We are working with sponsors to create an amazing experience for everyone, especially some extra treats for those choosing a VIP experience.”
All guests will be treated to a walk-around tasting, highlighting local restaurants with food from more than a dozen chefs, seasonal cocktails, and wines, all while mingling and dancing to some great DJ-powered music. This evening is one for the food enthusiasts of New York. All are welcome to attend. Attendees must be ages 21 and up, and be dressed to impress.
Sponsorship opportunities are still available and more announcements are on their way in the coming days. Björn & Company promises a full sensory experience and perfect night for the LGBTQ community to eat, drink, and party. Look for #GetForkd on social media to stay up-to-date.
