Dessert Cart Category Added to the Vendy Awards!
This years Vendy Awards is shaping up to be the best ever. For the first time ever, a second category has been added: dessert! This morning, the four nominees were announced for best dessert truck, and 3 of the 4 finalists are Midtown Lunch favorites. The Treats Truck, The Dessert Truck, and Wafels and Dinges all made the cut, with the Van Leeuwen Ice Cream Truck being the only choice that doesn’t spend at least one day parked in Midtown (what gives man?!? Can’t we get a hipster ice cream day up in this piece?) The award for best dessert will be voted on by the people rather than the judges, and the new additions mean that now an $80 ticket will get you food from 9 different vendors. Like I said… best… vendys… ever. If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, you may want to get on this now since the event has sold out every year. Plus, all the money goes to benefit the Street Vendor Project, so you can feel good about yourself while chowing down food from nine (that’s right, nine) different carts!
