Vendy Awards -- September 24
As you know, I'm a huge fan of food trucks. This year's 7th Vendy Awards happens Saturday on Governors Island, just off Manhattan. You can get there easily by free ferry from Battery Park.
The details: Here, the fiercest street chefs in the city will rev up their engines in competition for the titled position and honor, the Vendy Cup. General admission tickets have already sold out, but a new forum of Early Entry tickets have just been released and are selling for $145 a person. These exclusive tickets allow for a foodie dream, complete with an extra hour of eating and fast pass availability to shorter lines. From 12:30-5pm, vendors prepare and serve tastings; in the end it’s the public’s vote that determines the top prize. Bring comfortable shoes and be prepared to stand in lines.
