NEW YORK (1010 WINS) - Temperatures for the tri-state this weekend will hover around 100 degrees, but that's no reason to stay in and hibernate. There's a slew of goings-on in the region that deserve your attendance. 1010 WINS has curated a list of what to do over the next few days:

Dan's Taste of Two Forks

This really is one of the Hamptons' biggest summer draws -- especially for finicky foodies. Chefs from 40 restaurants and winemakers from about 20 vineyards converge under a massive tent at Fairview Farm at Mecox. The food is drool-inducing and the wine is superb. The dishes served span the culinary spectrum from seafood to artisan beef to cotton candy! Last year's host was Neil Patrick Harris, and this year, WNBC traffic reporter Lauren Scala is hosting. DJ Phresh will also be spinning. The feel-good element? A portion of ticket proceeds will benefit All For The East End, which showcases and provides support to the more than 1,000 charity organizations in the five East End towns.

When: Saturday, July 20, 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
