"Looking for something to do this weekend? Here are five choice dining events going on around the city:
1) The Duckathalon
When: 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Where: Metropolitan Pavilion
What: Meat purveyor D'Artangan is bringing back this event where chefs compete in food knowledge challenges, only this time the public can participate as well. François Payard and Jacques Torres will compete to see who can make the best île flottante. Identify cuts of meat in a contest run by Balthazar's Shane McBride and win some great prizes including hams for D'artagnan, armagnac, or wine. Proceeds go to the Action Against Hunger's FoodLove initiative. Tickets cost $60."
