This weekend was an epic one for both food and music celebs. The MTV Video Music Awards were held at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, where Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, and Drake performed (check out what Twitter has to say about their performances on Complex). Don’t doubt that they were frolicking about sampling Brooklyn’s finest food and drink offerings.

The MAD3 Symposium—an A-list gathering of chefs like René Redzepi and David Chang in Copenhagen—began on Sunday with some butchering demos and goat offal. The fun didn’t stop there: The Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival was held this weekend, which brought boldfaced chefs together for some blowout feasts.
