Street Meat Palooza 2 is in the Books

Just wrapped up the judging for the second annual Street Meat Palooza. 30+ lunchers just converged in Bryant Park and palooza’d the hell out of street meat from 15 different Midtown carts. There were some crazy new developments this year, and my hunch is a new winner is going to be crowned. Stay tuned… results will be posted next week.

  • OMG! I can’t wait.

    I thought you guys were going to be sequestered away from the public in some sort of Yucca Mountain of food though. I would of watched (Sounds stupid) you eat (Creepy) if I had only known the secret location.

  • wayne’s gave me a new nickname today… I may have to re-register with it :-P

    Now NO SPOILERS PEOPLE!!! Keep it zipped until the review comes out!

  • Tomorrow in the post:

    30+ midtown lunchers admitted to hospital with food poisoning. “Street meat” the apparent culprit.

  • Zach, what happened to the leftovers?

    Is there a long trail of overstuffed hobos from the park to your west side hovel?

  • Huh, that’s my meat claw in the picture above.

  • yesterday’s twitter update:

    “Donald Trump, spotted midtown? Buying halal for lunch”

    Shortly followed by Street Meat Palooza 2 today.

    Coincidence? Or will we be seeing Zach, Harry and carriage on next season’s Celebrity Apprentice?

  • I’ve never seen so much glottony, I hear Don “Moses” Lerman was even scared to come near us.

  • Seriously, this was the highlight of my summer. Also, leftovers? We’re midtown lunchers, there were none.

  • I am so upset I couldn’t come…. Wife o’ Api is expecting and I have been taking so much time off that I couldn’t take the uber-long lunch…. :-( I hope it was amazing

  • I like halal cardboard in white sauce.

  • I thought it was awfully quiet around here today…

  • Nice job putting it together, Zach! Can’t wait to see the results.

  • I predict any hour now that the NYC sewer system will be hit so hard that a state of emergency will be announced.

  • @Mamacita: From 30 people? Thats a load of shit.

  • Congrats Api. Having a baby seems like a lot of work at first, but it’s worth it. My girl is 1 in 2 weeks.

    The SMP2 was fun, but more work than I expected :) I only met Wayne, when I wasn’t accidentally bumping into FressaGirl.

    P.s. Cheese is trying too hard.

  • Never seen ‘palooza’ used a verb. But if there ever was an appropriate time, this was it. Congrats on a second year of street meat insanity.

  • Had a great time, but was surprised at the amount of work it took. Can’t wait to see the results

  • Scharron, glad you said that. I thought I was weird. Being invited to have some free food (though it cost me $15 in cabrides since I didn’t want to be late there or back to work).

    But I keep thinking, wtf was I thinking not just enjoying the experience.

    At least I know who you are now :) You and Wayne at least look like your respective icon pictures.

  • I actually have 3 cheeks in my trousers. But keep that between us.

  • Wayne, is that a picture of Newbomb Turk from Hollywood Knights?
