Bid on knives for charity, a cocktail recipe and more

"It ain't over until we say it's over." - Guy Fieri. The New York City Food & Wine Fest is having a charity auction, and all proceeds go to New York Food Bank.

A 4-piece set of Guy Fieri’s Knuckle Sandwich cutlery by Ergo Chef is a late addition to the auction - click here to view and bid.

Manufacturer's suggested retail price is $211.

At the time of this writing, the next minimum bid is $91, a steal for four quality knives. Act now, bidding ends on Friday, October 15, 2010 5:00 PM EDT.

Speaking of the 10/10/10 closing party, we hear the Luksusowa Vodka was flowing at Guy Fieri’s Triple Ten Closing Party for the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival, including a ruby grapefruit and pomegranate number with Guy Fieri's name on it.

1 ½ oz LUKSUSOWA vodka
½ oz VILLA MASSA™ limoncello
2 oz ruby grapefruit juice
3 dashes of lavender bitters
