It’s a tradition, it happens every year. You hear that catchy tune come across the TV and now you have your one year old dancing to it. As soon as she hears it she starts to do a little dance! It’s Shop Rites iconic Can Can Sale! This year’s theme is Cans for Fans!

In 2011, Shop Rite donated 40,000 cans of food to local food banks, this year the goal is 50,000! Help make this possible! It’s so simple. All you have to do is “like” Shop Rite’s page on Facebook.  Once you like their page, they will donate one can per like on their page, hoping to reach the goal of 50,000 cans in 2012!

Also be sure to check out the Shop Rite’s, “Get Can Canned” website here. All you have to do is  upload a personal photo and become a Shop Rite Can Can Dancer. You can email it to family &  friends, share on Facebook or twitter!  Check out Kiley’s video here!

For the second year in a row, Chris and I attended the New York City Wine and Food Festival. The weekend was filled with food, wine, an awesome hotel and tons of Food Network Stars! Oh, and of course the fabulous EmilyKeeley and their husbands!

So we left for our hotel on Friday morning, we stayed at the Dream Downtown. I recommend this hotel to anyone going to NYC. It is amazing, stainless steel toilets, bathroom, awesome decor.

Then we headed over to the Food and Wine Festival:

We got to enjoy some yummy food and Chris was able to enjoy lots and lots of wine and other fine spirits!  Also, I was put to work, handing out promotional information on the Potluck Blog!

After the festival we headed back to the hotel to rest and freshen up, then off to Brooklyn we went for the Blue Moon Burger Bash hosted by Whoopi Goldberg.  What an event! It was SO much fun. Over 20+ burgers to try, each chef/restaurant were competing for the best burger, I got to eat about 3 of them and was SO full, Chris had about 9. Duff Goldman was also there serving some delicious  milkshakes, my favorite was the Vanilla Salted Carmel.

There were a TON of Food Network Stars there:

Hello Bobby Flay and my self with the Brooklyn Bridge

There were a whole bunch of other Food Network Stars there also!  As you can see it was an amazing event! Thanks again to Shop Rite stores for inviting us to this amazing event!

Fellow Bloggers, Keeley and Emily and my self!

As  a Potluck Blogger, Shop Rite provided the tickets to the events and hotel stay.
