Last night, Pinnacle Vodka held an exclusive party at Jimmy at The James Hotel in New York City. Guests at the Pinnacle cocktail party were invited to taste their newest flavor innovations and sample their flavor portfolio.

New Yorkers love their food. Subsequently, they love their food trucks. Wafels & Dinges, Kelvin's Slush and Korilla BBQ are just a few of our favorites. Lately, food truck festivals are all the rage, bringing together a major chunk of NYC's trucks to one spot for foodies to go crazy over. But what happens when your favorite food trucks are nowhere to be found? However much we love them, we also hate them because you just have to be at the right spot at the right time to find them. Thank goodness for LunchCalling, a new delivery site just for food trucks. A great alternative to Seamless, this new site allows people to order from street vendors and other mobile food vendors.
