Plan to surrender your resolutions in about three weeks, when 2010's tasting season begins. On January 25, Metromix hosts Hot Plates Live at the Highline Ballroom. At $15, it’s a cheap way to try downtown restaurants, including Michael Bao Huynh’s Bia Garden, the Norry at Kampuchea, and Stuffed Artisan Cannolis. The Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival stops in New York on January 30 at La Venue, 608 West 28th Street. Space is left in the $75 session from 5 to 9 p.m., with over 100 beer and bourbon purveyors, demos and bites from Southern pitmasters, and a live Bluegrass band. The Village Voice holds out until March 22 at the 69th Armory for its annual Choice Eats event, but tickets go on sale January 20. Spots went for $35 last year and you can expect 50 restaurants from across the boroughs like Porchetta and Zuzu Ramen.
