Weekend Links: The Latest in Eating & Drinking

Ralph Lauren's Table at DIFFA's Dining by Design Event
I'm leaving you a day early this week because my husband and I are spending a long weekend in Lake Tahoe with some friends, in a little chalet sans Internet. Yes I know about mobile hotspots, and I have one. But the truth is, I'm looking forward to a tech-free vacation. A dinner party in the mountains where no one is watching youtube on their iPad? Sign me up. So here are your links for the weekend - the latest in eating & drinking: 

EATING
