Vendys 2010

It’s T-minus 25 hours to the Vendy Awards, the holiest day of the year for New York Street Food.  We will be heading to Governor’s Island tomorrow to pray to the street food gods – and to eat our faces off 🙂  Don’t expect all 15 Vendy finalists to be out today.  There’s a lot of prep work that need to be done to feed over 1,000 people tomorrow.

We did hear from Chef Samir of the Comme Ci Comme Ça truck, who had elbow surgery not long after opening.  He expects the truck to be back on the street soon, so check back here for updates.  We think the Comme Ci Comme Ça truck would have been a serious contender for a Rookie of the Year Vendy nomination if they weren’t forced onto the injured reserve list.  Check them out when they’re back on the street to see if you agree.

As always check the pink Mobile Munchies twitter feed on our homepage before heading out.   President Obama and the UN are creating all sorts of chaos on the east side, and we already had a change of plans due to a film shoot.  Now we have to go down to Park & 27th to meet @tastytouring at the Wafels & Dinges truck instead of their usual Fri spot on 52nd & 7th, which we could have walked to.  Oh well, life in NYC in never predictable.
