Tickets to Vendy Awards


September 12, 2012 by Emily Pergament

If I didn’t already have plans on Saturday, I would be going to the Vendy Awards on Governors Island. Nominated street vendors cook all day and the winner is presented with the coveted Vendy cup. A ticket gets you unlimited street food, beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks. Plus, part of it is tax-deductible because it goes to the Street Vendor Project. I’m really disappointed that I can’t go. Who doesn’t want to spend all day outside drinking and eating street vendor food? I will have to plan better next year.

Past winners include Solber Pupusas, Country Boys/Martinez Taco, and the food truck that’s nearest and dearest to my heart and home, King of Falafel.

Do you have a favorite NYC street vendor?

    Forget Homecoming, that sounds way better.
