How It All Started
Björn VW's career started in the restaurant industry. "One day his friend came to the restaurant he worked at to celebrate her birthday with 13 LGBT woman. "As I looked at them and how they were enjoying adult conversation, while enjoying great food & cocktails, it dawned on me that there are not that many events in Westchester that are geared towards the community and suddenly it hit me. What if I could make that table of 13 bigger?" That was the day Forks, Corks & Cocktails was born. Three years later, the event's growth has garnered the attention of not only Westchester residents, but many from other parts of New York including Connecticut & New Jersey.
We GetForkd Every Spring!
Every year, I personally select our culinary stars. We will be back at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Westchester in 2017. This is an amazing opportunity for local chefs and vendors around the Tri-State to showcase what is hot and trending in the food world. With live music, signature cocktails, seasonal wines and so much more. Westchester Magazine has named Forks, Corks & Cocktails "The event of the season for the LGBT Community"
