The 2008 Vendy Awards are Here!
The date is set, and tickets are on sale, for the biggest food event of the year… the 2008 Vendy Awards. It’s a street cart battle of epic proportions, and it all goes down October 18th at Tobacco Warehouse in Dumbo. Tickets are more expensive this year ($80 in advance/$100 at the door) but all the money goes to The Street Vendor Project, a great organization that fights for the legal rights of vendors all over the city. There are also donor packages available, with added perks, if your company would like to get involved.
Tickets are on sale now, and nominations are officially open- so head over to their website and represent for Midtown! Last year Kwik Meal won the fan’s choice award, but this year I want Midtown to take home the whole thing! (There are fancy shirts for sale as well… very exciting.) The nominations close on September 7th, so don’t wait!
