Tickets For Vendy Awards Now On Sale
If you’re a fan of the street food in NYC, then you won’t want to miss this year’s 8th annual Vendy Awards happening September 15 on Governor’s Island. Early bird tickets for the all-you-can-eat and drink event, which are $80, just went on sale and you’ll probably want to snag one of these before they sell out and the price increases to $95. The event benefits the Street Vendor Project which provides advocacy and legal services to all of those people serving you lamb over rice or tacos from a cart or truck. While you’re on the site buying your ticket, you might as well nominate your favorite vendor. Last year we had some downtown favorites represented like A-Pou’s Taste and Sam’s Falafel and it would be nice to make that a trend. This year, there’s a new Market Vendor category joining People’s Taste, Dessert, Rookie Vendor and the all-around Vendy Cup. You might want to get your eating strategy mapped out and those fat pants purchase now.
