Food at Dragon Boat races?
I am thinking about attending this weekend and was wondering if there are any vendors selling food...looked at some older posts on this board (from 2004) and the consensus seemed to be no food. Has anything changed since then? Did anyone go last year? If not, can someone reccomend a good spot nearby-I know there must be many great spots but I just don't know the area.
If you walk north from the lake passing under the LIE, you'll get to the soccer fields. They usually have Central and South American food vendors there. From there, if you bear north east (walking towards the Home Depot billboard) and exit in the proximity of the new swimming pool they're building and walk couple of blocks east - that will put you on the Main street Flushing.
another possibility is to walk straight west from the lake and that will bring you to Rego Park, where you can find many russian places. I've only done that once and I remember the blocks were not straight and very long, so you really need to pick the exact area you're going to and have a map of the area.
From the website at http://www.hkdbf-ny.org/festival.asp:
