Once again, we are producing a series of videos introducing and documenting the nominees for this year’s Vendy Awards. Look for a new video every few days.
This year, the Vendy Awards launched a special category honoring the best street drinks on the street. These five nominees will help wash down the rest of the great street food on offer. The videos features a warm chocolate-based Mexican drink from Catalina’s Chumparrado, coconut smoothies from CoCo & Co., the classic Dominican refresher morir soñando from Best Juice Uptown, bubble tea and more from Tea and Milk, and inventive and seasonal lemonade flavors from Renegade Lemonade.
Join us at the Vendy Awards on Saturday, September 12 on Governor’s Island. Tickets are now on sale, but are going fast. All proceeds from the event benefit the Street Vendor Project, a member-based organization that provides legal and financial support to vendors and advocates for their rights.
Want to learn more about New York City’s amazing street food scene? Join us for our Food Cart Tours in the Financial District on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and in Midtown Manhattan on Thursdays and Fridays. Each two-hour tour includes generous tastings from six different carts and trucks, but it’s much more than just a food tour – you’ll get an insider’s view of the industry, learning what it takes to run these demanding curbside kitchens and meet the vendors themselves.
