If you haven’t done so already, make sure to nominate your favorite, most drool-worthy, most awe-inducing vendor for a chance to participate in this year’s Vendy Awards.  They will thank you, as will everyone else who enjoys their food.  NOMINATIONS CLOSE ON FRIDAY, JULY 29th.

There’s also a new category this year, the “Most Heroic Vendor” Award.  This is meant to recognize the non-culinary contributions vendors make to New York City, from spotting car bombers in Times Square (yes, that was a vendor) to helping old people cross the street, vendors make hundreds of small contributions each day that go unrecognized.  So please nominate your local vendor for the new “Most Heroic Vendor” Award.
