Is This Tasting Worth $400?


Online ticket sales are closed, but bring $400 to the Naumburg Bandshell at 72nd Street tonight between 7 and 11 p.m. and you’ll gain entry to the Taste of Summer benefit for the Central Park Conservancy. Drink from an open bar, mingle with hosts Danny Meyer and Sandra Lee, and eat as much as you want from the likes of BLT Market, Gordon Ramsey at the London, and Park Avenue Summer. If you’re feeling flush, Meyer’s restaurants (including Eleven Madison and Union Square Cafe) are accessible only in the “VIP Café,” where tables run between $8,000 and $10,000 apiece.
