Start Spreadin’ The News!
Celebrity chefs with roots in both New York City and Las Vegas have inspired a unique food and wine extravaganza to benefit victims devastated by Hurricane Sandy. “Start Spreadin’ the News” brings food and beverage professionals together to throw a one of a kind event where attendees can enjoy amazing food and drinks and support the Red Cross at the same time.
“When it comes to the hospitality industry, Las Vegas and New York City are really sister cities,” said Michael Severino of Southern Wine & Spirits of Nevada. “This is just a small way all of us in Las Vegas can help those that have been affected by these monster storms”.
The event will take place on the New York-New York Hotel & Casino Brooklyn Bridge on Sunday, December 9, 2012 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Chefs will be serving some of their finest dishes, while Southern Nevada Wine will make sure that the drinks are delicious and plentiful.
A partial list of the chefs/restaurants invited to participate in “Start Spreadin’ the News” includes: Mario Batali, Tom Colicchio, Scott Conant, Todd English, Bobby Flay, Charlie Palmer, Nobu, Gordon Ramsay, Thomas Keller, Palm Restaurant, Smith & Wollensky, Rao’s, Stage Deli, Nathan’s, Carnegie Deli, Old Homestead and many others. Great wine, craft beers and specialty cocktails will be provided by Southern Wine & Spirits of Nevada. 100% of the proceeds will go to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
Many surprises will take place on the day, but one that we couldn’t keep secret is that Mayor Carolyn Goodman, and her husband, former Mayor Oscar Goodman will both be in attendance!
