BREAKING: 2010 Vendy Awards Finalists Have Been Announced!
The finalists for the 2010 Vendy Awards were just announced on TONY’s Feed Blog, and 3 of the 5 vendors have ties to Midtown! Last year’s “Rookie of the Year” Vendy Award winner Schnitzel & Things has been graduated to the big dance, along with 2 year old Midtown Mexican fave El Rey del Sabor, Flatiron Lunch standout The Bistro Truck, Freddie “The Falafel King” of Astoria, and the Patacon Pisao truck (El Dugout) that Dave Cook wrote about in the New York Times last year. Tickets are $85 (which goes to benefit the Street Vendor Project) and get you free drinks and all you can eat from all 5 finalists, plus “Rookie of the Year” and “Best Dessert” finalists- who will be announced at a later date. This year the event will be held on Governor’s Island on September 25th, and it always sells out, so you might want to get your tickets now if you haven’t already.
