Enlightened Eaters @ Beard House

Overeating can be an occupational hazard for chefs, but author Allison Adato has enlisted the help of some of America's top stars of the stove to combat this hurdle. In Smart Chefs Stay Slim, she divulges the successful strategies that Tom Colicchio, Michelle Bernstein, Eric Ripert, and other celebrity chefs use to maintain a healthy diet despite their busy (and food-filled) lifestyles.

ENLIGHTENED EATERS is an educationally minded series of readings, workshops, discussions, and other programs focusing on health, nutrition, sustainability, and environmental issues. This event is free to students, with a suggested donation of $20 for nonstudents. Acqua Panna and S.Pellegrino water, tea from Le Palais des Thés, Lavazza Coffee, and Green & Black’s Organic Chocolate will be served. Snacks will be provided by Simpson Wong of NYC's WONG and guests are also welcome to bring a brown-bag lunch.

Where: At The Beard House, 167 West 12th Street, New York
When: Wednesday, July 18th at 12PM

DUMBO First Thursday

July is a great time to soak in some fabulous art during DUMBO's First Thursday Gallery Walk. Round out the evening with a stop at DUMBO's Flea Food under the Archway and a post-gallery picnic at the first Brooklyn Bridge Park Movies With a View of the season. This week it's E.T.!

Our gallery pick this month is A.I.R. Gallery's Baguette Hell. Playing on ideas of communication and public space, the artist Bang-Guel Han offers a series of interactive apps that use the image of the namesake French bread.

All First Thursday events are open to the public; most events listed below are free.

Local bars and restaurants also get in on the action - AlMar gives you a Peroni with an order of meatballs
