NEW YORK, July 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Restaurant discovery platform, The Infatuation, today announced the exciting line-up for All You Can EEEEEATSCON, a new weekly virtual event series inspired by the celebrated, twice annual, bi-coastal food festival EEEEEATSCON, presented by the American Express Gold Card and Resy.

While there will be no in-person EEEEEATSCON this year, starting today, July 22nd, The Infatuation will host a free virtual event on Wednesdays at 7pm ET / 4pm PT for four weeks. Each event will focus on a different type of food and bring together a panel of special guests to debate just what makes it so good.

In addition to incredible chef talent, the first two events will be co-hosted by some notable names and familiar faces including SAG-award winning actor, writer and director, Paul Scheer and The Infatuation Los Angeles' editorial lead, Brant Cox. Co-hosts for the remaining two events will be announced at a later date.

As long-time advocates and supporters of the restaurant industry and diners, American Express and Resy are teaming up with The Infatuation to continue to connect people with the restaurants they love through an interactive virtual experience.
