Cranberry bogging in the heart of Rock Center

I love the fall.  From the chill in the air to the warm colors of the season, October through mid-December (which I consider to be fall) is, easily, my favorite time of the year.  And, it also happens to be when my calendar is dotted with some of my most cherished foodie events; namely, Ocean Spray's "Bogs Across America."  The company (Ocean Spray) makes its annual pilgrimage to NYC and sets up a live cranberry bog - filled with 2,000 fresh, floating cranberries - in the heart of Rockefeller Center.

This year, I invited my friend, Robin, to join me at the private cocktail reception held *inside of the bog* - outdoors - at Rockefeller Center (just beyond the ice skating rink)!  While many of the guests exchanged their 'business casual' heels and loafers for waterproof waders and suspenders, the two of us stayed dry - outside of the bog - and enjoyed a plethora of delicious, cranberry-based cocktails and nibbles, catered by Great Performances

Please enjoy my photo collage from, yet another, fantastic Ocean Spray event...

...But first:  Did you know that the famous ice skating rink (at Rockefeller Center) has opened for the season?  Neither did I!
