Happy Thursday, Noshers! It is finally getting warmer here in NYC, and I can’t wait to get outside and enjoy the weather a little more! I admit I went for my first outdoor run in months last week, and it was a little brutal. Gotta get used to working out outside again – although with Central Park as a workout venue, I guess I can’t complain 🙂
Today, I’m super excited to share the details about an upcoming event I’ll be attending in two weeks – The Village Voice’s 4th Annual Choice Streets Food Truck Event! Although this is the fourth year of the event, it is my first time attending and I am psyched!
This year, the Village Voice will be teaming up with the non-profit Slow Food NYC, with whom a portion of the proceeds will be shared. My favorite type of event – eating for a good cause! The event will take place at the The Intrepid (which if you haven’t been to, is super cool with amazing views), so not only is food and drink included with your admission, you also get to tour the aircraft carrier against an amazing backdrop. Additionally, live music will be provided by Mariachi Flor de Toloache – New York City’s first and only all-female mariachi band! How cool is that??
Participants this year (so far, more are being added right up until the event date!) include Andy’s Italian Ice, Brooklyn Organic Coffee & Tea, Carl’s Steaks, Domo Taco, Gorilla Cheese, Ponti Rossi, Mike ‘N Willie’s, The Treats Truck, Big D’s Grub, Korilla BBQ, Langos Truck, Snowday, Solber Pupusas, Sweet Chili, Valducci’s Pizza, The Vintage Ice Cream Guys, and Yankee Doodle Dandy’s. Wow!
Have I mentioned I am SO EXCITED for this event? I hope to see you there!! 🙂
