If you're going to be in New York City this weekend, don't miss the Duckathlon.

Presented by D'Artagnan—which produces some of the tastiest poultry and game meats by working with small farms and making sustainability and humane farming practices a priority—Duckathlon will include demonstrations and challenges led by top chefs and farmers.
