New York Comic Con 2017 Costume Favorites

Here's a look at my favorite costumes spotted at New York Comic Con this year. I knew characters from Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead were going to be a popular choice. Any other ones look familiar?

Bergen County Food & Wine Festival 2017

Slow Smoked Burnt Ends w/ pickled cucumber & fresno chile

Last month, the first-ever Bergen County Food & Wine Festival, benefitting the 200 Club of Bergen County, took place in a tented section in the western parking lot of Garden State Plaza in Paramus, NJ. While September 16th focused on Burgers & Brews, I attended the Tasting Village on September 17th, featuring over 70 Bergen County restaurants, complete with beer, wine and spirit tastings. Check out my favorite tasting plates served up at the festival.

Recap: Macy's Herald Square and Barbour Celebrate the Launch of Sam Heughan's Signature Collection

On September 28th, I had the opportunity to meet Outlander star Sam Heughan for the launch of the Sam Heughan's Signature Collection with Macy's and Barbour. For the launch, the first 200 customers enjoyed a meet and greet with Sam plus a photo op. It turns out fans had camped out since 2am the night before! Guests also enjoyed a whisky tasting with Laphroaig.

Heughan is a global ambassador for Barbour and created his own spin on some of their classic products to launch his very own Autumn Winter 2017 collection.
