I've got my portable fork packed and ready for an eater's trip to New York. Raleigh food writer Andrea Weigl and I will be at the James Beard Foundation festivities this weekend, along with anything else we find that's interesting in the food world.
If you want to follow us on Twitter, we'll use the hashtab #NCtoNYC for general food adventures, both together and separately. On Twitter, I'm @kathleenpurvis and she's @andreaweigl. During James Beard events, particularly the Book, Broadcast and Journalism Awards on Friday night and the big gala Sunday night, we'll use the hashtag #jbfa.
If you'd like to follow the official Beard Foundation Twitter feed during the awards on Monday night at Lincoln Center, check out these directions. They'll stream it live on jamesbeard.org.
