Vendy Awards 2013Industry City (220 36th Street Brooklyn, NY 11232) Map it $85
It's time again to celebrate the unsung heroes of the food truck wars. For the past nine years, the Vendys have been awarding excellence in street fare while also serving as a fundraiser for the Street Vendor Project. Now, unlike other boring award shows where folks dress up and wait for their names to announced, the winner of the Vendy Cup is determined that afternoon after a heated competition involving the finalists, which this year include the Chipper Truck, The Cinnamon Snail, El Olomega, King Souvlaki and Luke's Lobster. In addition to the Cup, other categories include People's Taste Award, Rookie of the Year, Best Dessert, Best Market Vendor, Best of New Jersey and the newest addition, Messy Yet Tasty Award. Live music, performances, alcoholic beverages, and, of course, food are all on the menu at this vendor throwdown.
