event that offers some hope. Contestants will gather at the Bell House

judges that includes Red Hook Vendor Committee Director Cesar Fuentes, Dave 
Vendley of Calexico
http://tastingtable.com/entry_detail/national/299/Food_truck_stars_head_back_into_the_restaurant.htm 
and Todd Mitgang of newcomer Cascabel

. The grand prize at this Food Experiment Cookoff
http://thefoodexperiments.com/ : two plane tickets to anywhere in Mexico. 
Attendees ($20; click here to buy tickets
http://www.ticketweb.com/t3/sale/SaleEventDetail?dispatch=loadSelectionData&eventId=1053125

Heads Up!
Fog up your glasses at the 18th annual City Bakery
http://thecitybakery.com/ Hot Chocolate Festival. Expect a wild rotation 
of flavors--including Vietnamese Cinnamon and 'Ode to the Polar Bear'--to 
share the stage with CB's famous original recipe; whether you go the 
adventurous or classic route, these cups ($2.50 each) will warm you from 
the inside. And for those who throw caution to the wind, what could make a 
better dipping companion than one of the Bakery's behemoth cookies? City 
Bakery, 3 W. 18th St. (between Fifth and Sixth aves.); 212-366-1414 or 
citybakery.com http://www.hotchocolatefestival.com


TURNED TABLES:

OPENED: Bar Seven Five
The glossy new drinking spot inside the Wall Street Andaz hotel is now 
open, though be aware that 'bar' is a misnomer--in its absence, drink 
makers spread out among a series of individual work stations to make your 
drink.

OPENED: Mole
This LES Mexican restaurant has ventured across town to open a second 
branch in the space that once housed the now-defunct Mi Cocina.
