First Fridays

Start Your Weekend Deliciously!

ICE_First_Fridays_8.4.17_2_smaller_375x375.jpgJoin us for the first Friday of each month at ICE!

Each First Fridays event begins with a tasting session by one of NYC’s finest mixologists, sommeliers or brewers. The evening will be followed by culinary demonstrations and tastings, performed by premiere New York City chefs and pastry chefs.

Start your weekend deliciously — you’ll learn new recipes and techniques and have the opportunity to hang out with NYC’s top tastemakers!

First Fridays at ICE are free for current career students and alumni. The cost for general public is $30.
