Live from New York

I'm heading up to New York on Thursday for the James Beard Foundation awards weekend. That includes the media awards (cookbooks, journalism, TV and radio) on Friday night, then the gala on Monday night at Avery Fischer Hall at Lincoln Center.

If you're interested, my colleague Andrea Weigl and I both will be tweeting through the weekend. I'm @kathleenpurvis, she's @andreaweigl. I'll try to remember my hash tags: #nypurvis for general New York eating and watching, #jbf for the awards.

And if you'd like to watch, the James Beard Foundation will offer live-streaming for the first time on Monday night. It starts at 6 p.m. Monday, at It's great people-watching. I'll report in next week with plenty of tidbits.
