The end of a month and beginning of a new one can be pretty anxiety-inducing for some of us. Time is passing quickly! Our bodies are disintegrating with each sunset! The end of spring brings the end of summer brings the end of fall brings the beginning of winter! My landlord texted me to remind me rent is due! Thankfully, eating distracts us from our slow crawl towards death, and there are lots of places to do that this week. Here's where to feast:

On Monday, Jacob's Pickles on the Upper West Side is teaming up with food justice group the Insurgo Project to throw a fundraiser for the Urban Assembly School for Green Careers in its new garden, located next door to the restaurant. $100 tickets cover a cocktail hour, with an additional $150 cocktail/dinner feast following. Guests at the first event get treated to drinks and hors d'ouevres like snap peas with fresh ricotta and duck rillettes with foie gras and Jacob’s pickled tomatoes on toast.
