We usually let you know about stuff like this in our indispensable daily events blast, GothamList, but we just didn't have room today, so here's a heads up on two very special food-oriented events going down this weekend. On Saturday and Sunday a dozen big-shot chefs, three mixologists, one ice-cream maker, DJs and artists from NYC and Paris will descend on P.S. 1 in Long Island City for Le Fooding d'Amour, a culinary celebration of the two cities.

Our town will be represented by the likes of David Chang (Momofuku), Wylie Dufresne (wd-50), Julie Farias (General Greene), Daniel Boulud and Olivier Muller (db Bistro), Riad Nasr (Minetta Tavern) and Sean Rembold (Diner), with cocktails from Richard Boccato (Dutch Kills). In from Paris are chefs Inaki Aizpitarte (Le Chateaubriand), Alberto Herraiz (Fogón), and Yves Camdeborde (Le Comptoir de la Relais). We've never heard of these frogs, but that's exactly why this is worth checking out: discovery. Tickets, which benefit Action Against Hunger, range from $30 to $60, and all the details are here.

And GothamList subscribers are already well aware that over on Governors Island Sunday, Michael Arenella & His Dreamland Orchestra are hosting a Jazz Age Lawn Party, with cocktails served up by St. Germain. But Grub Street reminds us that on Saturday, from noon till 5 p.m., the island hosts the last day of Recess: a laid-back bocce party fueled by refreshments from Van Leeuwen Ice Cream and the Le Gamin mobile food truck. Oh, and wine and beer from DOC Wine Shop, plus the mysterious promise of "ladies on the bike serving cakeballs." No brainer, right? Just remember, when it comes to bocce, the fun isn't in the winning, it's in the arguing.
