While champagne is probably the #1 holiday beverage, NYC bars are mixing up some over-the-top drinks to celebrate the season.
Since calorie counting is now du rigueur in the city (what a buzz kill!) I spoke with a nutritionist to find out the damage.

Sometimes, we must leave our beloved New York City to stick our noses into another city's food and wine fest. It's a hard life.
Why not join in the fun for the San Diego Food & Wine Festival? Starting November 18th and ending on the 22nd, this foodie fest is the perfect getaway weekend. C'mon, you know you want to swirl and sniff under the sun!
The 6th Annual Food & Wine Festival is actually quite affordable and hands-on. Most events, like a pasta making class taught by James Beard award-winning Chef Alex Stratta, cost just $75 a ticket.

This fascinating club features a membership program...but the inside has some of the best people watching you can dream up (think male models in 80s Ts drooling over dainty small plates). Citysearch had me check it out...let me know what you think, if you can clear the velvet ropes.

The creative designer presented his colorful 2010 Spring collection, where models were outfitted in bright draped dresses, and boys in khaki shorts and festive shirts.

Since we previously reported on Nicole Richie's pregnancy cravings (juicy In n Out burgers), we thought it only fair to let you know what KK is longing for--and it's not an engagement ring!
It's not pickles and ice cream either. This mom-to-be and reality star craves fruit platters and virgin "Miami Vice" cocktails, according to the Las Vegas Sun. Are you yawning?
We were hoping for something more decadent, KK! At least she has been indulging in Twizzlers, Pinkberry, and Mexican food on occassion, according to the article. Thoughts?

Wondering what Craig Hopson is up to in Le Cirque's esteemed kitchen? Thursday Night Magazine had me get the skinny.

On a recent trip to San Diego, we fell in love with California's best burger (again). We also adore the not so secret names (i.e. Animal Style) that insiders have given to various versions of the iconic burger.

The transformation to Horton's was welcomed by Gov. Paterson at the Penn Station unveiling.
For those of us (Canadians) who adore the Northern goodies, we are truly delighted.
Many people rely on Gawker Stalker to discover celebrity hangouts in the Big Apple.
We're thinking it's as simple as lurking in front of Italian eatery, Il Cantorini (32 E 10th St NYC NY 10003) where Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Aniston were recently seen on a date. Curiously, E online reports that CoopIston prefers Pellegrino to vino.
Yes, we just made up CoopIston.
Known for feeding A-list couples (like Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes) tasty Tuscan dishes, Il Cantorini features Italian specialties like ossobucco (veal shank), risotto (changes daily), and tagliolini al funghi (homemade pasta with wild mushrooms).
Maybe this restaurant week, you should wine and dine with the stars--or just be a third wheel on a celebrity date you aren't supposed to be on. Check out Il Cantorini's restaurant week menu here.

This meatball sandwich gets an extra blast of cool when layered with a side of refreshing, super-thinly sliced pickled cucumbers ($2.95/side).
