If you have not eaten at Porchetta, stop in and try it. Call ahead and see if they have the Ragu, it is so worth the trip. Have I steered any of you wrong yet?

Other happenings in the foodie-verse this week
Summer means lemonade and such. If you want to make that big batch of drinks but have nothing cool to put it in, then check out 10 Summer Drink Dispensers (and Drinks to Put In Them) (via The Kitchen)
Did you know that Photographer Annie Leibovitz has collaborated with Lavazza on a calendar and marketing campaign that features scantily clad women lusting for . . . coffee. Chow let us know that you can find the calender here.
Yankee fan? Hate the Red Sox? Did you know that David “Big Papi” Ortiz has his own hot sauce called Big Papi En Fuego Hot Sauce. Too bad he’s only hitting below .210 with 4 home runs. That doesn’t seem like “En Fuego” to me.
Are you a public servant? Well the Hard Rock Cafe is offering 71 cent burgers to all public servants (with ID) on June 14th, the 38th anniversary of the opening of the original Hard Rock Cafe. (via A Hamburger Today)
Can’t keep up with all of the new places opening around town? Not to worry, StrumErika brings us 7 May Restaurant Openings (Table 8, Aldea, Locanda Verde, Marea and More).
Some fun food stuff from the Twitter feed:
MetromixNewYork Buttermilk Channel: Starting tonight, strawberry shortcake sundae with greenmarket strawberries and nick morgansterns vanilla ice cream.
Happy eating everyone, hope some of you have the chance to check out The Big Apple Barbecue Block Party this weekend!
