How It All Started
"I've worked in the restaurant business in Westchester for a long time. One day a friend of mine came in to the restaurant I worked at to celebrate her birthday with 13 LGBT woman. As I looked at them and how they were enjoying adult conversation, while enjoying great food & cocktails, it dawned on me that there are not that many events in Westchester that are geared towards the community and suddenly it hit me. What if I could make that table of 13 bigger? That was the day Forks, Corks & Cocktails was born. Three years later, the event's growth has garnered the attention of not only Westchester residents, but many from other parts of New York including Connecticut & New Jersey.
We GetForkd Every Spring!
Every year, I personally select our culinary stars. We will be back at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Westchester in 2017. This is an amazing opportunity for local chefs and vendors around the Tri-State to showcase what is hot and trending in the food world. With live music, signature cocktails, seasonal wines and so much more. Westchester Magazine has named Forks, Corks & Cocktails "The event of the season for the LGBT Community"
