Chasing down the food trucks
If you can, stop what you’re doing and go get your tickets to this September 25th event. It’s time again for the 6th Annual Vendy Awards, an intense cook-off between the best sidewalk chefs in New York City for the Vendy Award trophy and the title of Vendy Award winner. Proceeds from the tickets benefit the Street Vendor Project, a non-profit organization that helps protect the rights of street vendors. As most New Yorkers know, we couldn’t fulfill our daily needs (for hot dogs, falafel, pretzels, coffee or otherwise) without these incredible food providers. A portion of each ticket is even tax deductable. For $85 a pop the event on Governor’s Island isn’t cheap, but the event is certainly one you don’t want to miss. Visit StreetVendor.org for tickets. It’s going to be a blast!
