While many of us were bracing for Hurricane Sandy to make landfall on the East Coast, Sandra Lee has declared Cocktail Time! Sandra Lee tweeted to her followers: "Be safe inside with family and friends. If you need a Hurricane cocktail recipe…here’s one to help you relax" with a link to a hurricane recipe. Makes sense as the storm shared the same name as her and was hitting around her favorite holiday of Halloween. If you set up a tablescape in your house, Hurricane Sandy will spare your house of any damage. Good luck to everyone that will be impacted by this storm.

Duff Goldman recently uploaded a video of him attempting the Cinnamon Challenge multiple times. If you do not know what the Cinnamon Challenge is, it is when a person tries to swallow a teaspoon full of ground cinnamon within 60 seconds and without the aid of any liquid. Most people fail as it dries out the mouth so quickly, and there are thousands of Youtube videos of people attempting it. In his video, Duff also gets former Top Chef winner Michael Voltaggio to attempt the Cinnamon Challenge with him. Watch the video after the jump.

|Meatball Madness - Image Source Giada's Twitter|
The Meatball Madness event was judged by Anne Burrell and Geoffrey Zakarian, who chose the judges winner. There was also a People's Choice award for the crowd's favorite meatball. The People's Choice award ended up going to Donatella Arpaia, who you probably recognize as a frequent judge on Iron Chef America. The judges award went to the restaurant L'Apicio, which is a restaurant that hasn't even opened, but is scheduled to open in several weeks.
The Roast of Anthony Bourdain was probably the most anticipated event due to the amount of chefs and celebrities that were scheduled to be there, such as Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri. Here are some of the more popular jokes from the event:

Tonight's Restaurant: Impossible has Robert Irvine going to the Valley Inn in Palos Hills, Illinois which opened 40 years ago and is now being run by the original owners' sons. In doing research and reviews, it seemed as if many of the reviews before the show complained about the dirtiness and appearance of the Valley Inn. As I do every week, I searched around the internet to read stories, comments and reviews about the Valley Inn to get an idea of how the restaurant is doing since Robert Irvine visited, and here is what I found (note - all reviews and comments are post Restaurant: Impossible):
The New York City Wine & Food Festival is scheduled to begin tomorrow and runs through Sunday, October 14th. It is the 5th year of the festival and 100% of the proceeds from all of the events benefit the Food Bank For New York City and Share Our Strength, which is a non-profit to end childhood hunger. Pretty much all of the Food Network personalities will be in attendance and although a lot of the events are sold-out, tickets are still available to others (List of all Events).
