Who wants “A Taste of Times Square”?
Overshadowed by the Big Apple BBQ Block Party this past weekend (and most other food festivals in the city), A Taste of Times Square is happening tonight from 5 to 8:30pm. on 46th St. btw. Broadway & 9th Ave. According to their website, it’s:
Your chance to sample signature dishes and a variety of international foods from Times Square’s finest eateries…
If Hard Rock Cafe, Planet Hollywood, Papa John’s & Applebee’s are some of the “finest eateries” in Times Sq. than I think we’re in trouble. I’m gussing our Times Sq. favorites (Kati Roll, Minar, Margon, Yum Thai, and all the food carts) got priced out…
I do love food festivals though, so I will probably do a quick walk through after work. It will be a cheap way to try some of the places a little expensive for Midtown Lunch’ing purposes… like Utsav, Becco & Virgil’s BBQ. Plus, I do love Snapple!
For more info, including a full list of vendors, go here. There is no information about how much the food costs (they’ll be selling generic “tickets” at booths throughout the festival), but if it’s a true “Taste” of Times Sq. I’m guessing it will be overpriced and packed with annoying tourists.
