EaterWire: No Chick-Fil-A, Female Chefs for Charity, Slow Food's Pig Roast, and More!

CHICK-FIL-A— Sad update guys, from the officials at Chick-Fil-A: "At present, we do not have any confirmed contracts for Chick-fil-A stores in New York City. New York City is a growth market for Chick-fil-A, and it is our hope that in the near future, we are able to build a Chick-fil-A store in New York." [EaterWire]

CHELSEA— Some of the city's top female chefs including Odette Fada of San Domenico, Gabrielle Hamilton of Prune, Sue Torres of Suenos, and 22 others will be getting together on September 15th for Share's 5th Annual "A Second Helping of Life" charity event. Tickets start at $300 (here). [EaterWire]

THE INTERNETS— Mr. Cutlets notices the dubious launch of site Eat Drink or Die: "Conceived as a 'premier video and recipe sharing site,' according to a press release, it currently looks anything but. Although technically live, the site looks beta, albeit with a fair amount of (boring) content....Even with Tom Colicchio attached, the site seems less than promising." [Cutlets]

NORTH FORK— Slow Food's New York chapter will be throwing their 3rd Annual Pig Roast on Sept. 6 on the Paumanok Vineyards. The details: "Folks will enjoy the best, local, East End bounty, featuring raw bar, a whole hog BBQ with all the fixin’s, dessert, and a steady pour of Paumanok Wines, all accompanied by live jazz. Tickets here. [EaterWire]
