Today is National Waffle Day and Wafels & Dinges is the obvious place to celebrate. They will be on 52nd St between Lexington & 3rd Ave, and if you give them a drawing of their truck, you get a free waffle. They will be decorating the truck with drawings of the truck, like some kind of zen puzzle.
Between 1pm and 2 pm, they will be crowning Miss Wafel and Mister Wafel 2010 , who each get a year of free wafels. We hope there’s not a costume or uniform because there’s no way Miss Wafel or Mister Wafel will still fit into it after eating free wafels for a year. We certainly wouldn’t be able to.
If you recall, Wafels & Dinges won the 2009 Vendy Award for Best Dessert (below), so treat yourself to a wafel today and enjoy the festivities at the same time.
Wafels & Dinges was the New York Street Food Featured Vendor in December 2009. Click here to read the interview we did with Thomas DeGeest at the time.
