Prepare the juice cleanse: at the Central Park Conservancy’s annual “Taste of Summer,” dozens of fancy food tables amount to a cavalcade of calories. Gourmet grub is provided by the 21 Club, Armani Ristorante, La Esquina, PJ Clarke’s, Sirio Ristorante, Swifty’s and Tulsi, to name a few. Those with fat wallets and hungry tummies who buy tables get to pig out at The Taste Café, which is hosted by Crown Group Hospitality, the powers behind hot spots Crown, The Lion and Bill’s Food & Drink. Event chairs include Jay Mandelbaum, Gillian Miniter, John Paulson and Norman Selby. To burn off the non-beach-worthy body blubber you just packed on, dance to DJ Alexandra Richards.
Bethesda Terrace, Central Park, (212) 310-6600, 7-11pm, individual tickets $400, tables from $10,000.

People take part in a protest outside the New York Times on February 26, 2017 in New York. The White House denied access Frebuary 24. 2017 to an off-camera briefing to several major US media outlets, including CNN and The New York Times. Smaller outlets that have provided favorable coverage however were allowed to attend the briefing by spokesman Sean Spicer. The WHCA said it was "protesting strongly" against the decision to selectively deny media access. The New York Times said the decision was "an unmistakable insult to democratic ideals," CNN called it "an unacceptable development," and The Los Angeles Times warned the incident had "ratcheted up the White House's war on the free press" to a new level. / AFP / KENA BETANCUR (Photo credit should read KENA BETANCUR/AFP/Getty Images)
