Although we’re in the midst of NYFW and fresh off of releasing Athleisure Mag’s Aug Issue which has our Electric Zoo cover, SayMyName (the Godfather of Hard Trap as well as additional EDM DJ/Producers) - we’re doing a bit of backtracking as we made our way to the 20th Annual Citi Taste of Tennis NYC 2019 which took place during the US Open and was held at Cipriani 42nd St. This event celebrates tennis greats that included John Isner, Venus Williams, Serena Williams, Coco Gauff, Andy Roddick, Milan Tyson, Gaël Monfils, Daniil Medvedev, Felix Auger Aliassime, Belinda Bencic, Abi Spears, Vania King, Jamie Loeb, Monica Puig, Donna Vekic, Bethanie Mattek Sands, Kristi Ahn, Danielle Collins and more.
In addition, there were noted chefs that included Richard Blais (Juniper and Ivy), Masaharu Morimoto (Morimoto), Sujan Sarkar (Baar Baar), Edward Lee (Milkwood), Chef Bao Bao (Baoburg), Lamar Moore (The Swill Inn), Rory MacDonald (Chanson Patisserie), Kerry Heffernan (Grand Banks), Michael Han (Ortzi), Julian Medina (Toloache), Mina Newman (Sen Sakana), Cedric Tovar (Lotte NY Palace), John Stage (Dinosaur BBQ), Neil Cline (British Virgin Islands), Sani Hebaj (Dabble @ The Conrad), Mike Viola (Boars Head), Anastacia Song (American Cut). In addition, other notable athletes such as Mike Tyson were also there as well.
One of the highlights of the night included a sibling rivalry of the Williams Sisters and Chef Richard Blais as they competed onstage during this cooking competition and interestingly enough, they tied for their best dish.
