2011 Vendy Award Tickets Are Now On Sale
I know it seems like just yesterday that we were on Governor’s Island watching Freddie the King of Falafel take home the 2010 Vendy Awards Cup, but the website for the 2011 Vendy Awards is already up and running! The event is back on Governor’s Island again, and will take place on Saturday September 24th from 12:30pm to 5pm. A limited number of early bird tickets are on sale now for $80 (plus service charge) and as always all proceeds go to benefit the Street Vendor Project. In recent years the event has become as close to a no-brainer sell-out as you can get in this town, so we’d recommend getting in on this while the getting is good.
But wait there’s more… amazing author (and ML friend) John T. Edge has already been announced as a judge, and the nominations are open. So after you’re done buying your tix, make sure to nominate your favorite street vendor! And as an added bonus, this year will feature for the first time an award for heroism and everybody who buys early bird tickets will be entered into a drawing to be this year’s “Citizen Judge”!
