Taste of Summer in Central Park

Taste of Summer in Central Park is an annual benefit which takes place every June. And it’s a seriously decadent shindig. So a big heads up to my readers: it is insanely expensive. Starting prices for general admin are $500 per person, and prices for tables range from $10,000 to $20,000.

Taste of Summer in Central Park is going down on Wednesday, June 5th from 7-11pm at Bethesda Terrace.

There will be lots of food from the city’s best restaurants, seasonal cocktails, a luxury-filled silent auction, music, and dancing.

Wines will be provided by 90+ Cellars, beer by Brooklyn Brewery, and spirits by William Grant & Sons.

The annual benefit supports the Central Park Conservancy’s mission to restore and maintain Central Park.
