Greenpoint Fish & Lobster Co. will be teaching oyster shucking classes for guests at this year's guests at the NYCWFF kick off Smorgasburg event.
"Brooklyn’s celebrated outdoor market comes to Pier 92 for one night only!
In honor of its 10th anniversary, Smorgasburg is headed to NYCWFF for an unforgettable evening hosted by the cast of Food Network’s hit series Chopped. Dubbed “The Woodstock of Eating” by The New York Times, Smorgasburg is a weekly, outdoor celebration featuring specialty purveyors from New York and the surrounding region who will be joining us just for our opening party! As with all our Festival events, you’ll get to sip on carefully curated cocktails and savor an endless and delicious array of Smorgasburg’s most popular offerings at our signature culinary playground on the rooftop of Pier 92. Some of America’s most discerning palates from the cast of Chopped will serve as the evening’s hosts to kick off this 10th anniversary party!
And to make the party even better, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and worldwide rap personality Rev Run will take to the tables, blending old school and electronic music."
