New Amsterdam Bicycle Show

    Produced by New York Press, the New Amsterdam Bicycle Show is the biggest, the best, and the ‘bikiest’ event in Manhattan. Kicking off Bike Month NYC, the show provides the ultimate showcase for world-class bike manufacturers, local handbuilt and tuning shops, accessory manufacturers, lifestyle brands, and everything in between. Benefiting Transportation Alternatives, an advocacy group dedicated to reclaiming the city’s streets from automobiles, the New Am Bike Show is geared toward promoting the alternative transportation lifestyle to the ever-growing number of New York City’s cyclists. With sponsors and exhibitors from all over Europe and North America, the New Amsterdam Bicycle Show welcomes more than 8,000 biking enthusiasts through its doors over the course of the weekend.

Dan's Taste of Two Forks

    Produced by Dan’s Papers, the Hamptons’ preeminent weekly newspaper, Dan’s Taste of Two Forks is a night of culinary magic that brings together the best flavors of the North and South forks of Long Island. Over thirty local restaurants and twenty local wineries came together under one roof for the 2011 event, along with world-renowned chefs, celebrity presenters, and endless musical entertainment. As part of an over-arching effort to support the local community, a portion of the proceeds from Taste of Two Forks goes toward the Have a Heart Community Trust, a 501(c)3 organization. Dan’s Taste of Two Forks is the ultimate night out in Bridgehampton, and the only tasting event that celebrates the best of both forks.

Blackboard Awards

    Started by New York Family in 2002, The Blackboard Awards accomplish two worthy goals. First and foremost they honor and celebrate schools, principals and teachers of excellence from all education communities — public, private, parochial and charter — and all grade levels, from nursery school through high school. This in turn helps New York City parents make informed choices about their children’s education. Taking place twice a year, the Blackboard Awards allow anyone in the five boroughs to show their appreciation for those people who make such a big difference in the lives of their children. For more information, or to nominate a teacher or principal, visit blackboardawards.com.
