2008 Vendy Awards

prdct Oct 8, 2008 09:43 AM

This year's Vendy awards are in brooklyn on Oct 18th. This is always an incredible event and this year, with the addition of the dessert category it seems like it is an even better bang for your buck. Finalists, judges, and ticket sales are all on the website.

      It's a fundraiser for their not for profit organization -- and a cheap one at that! (For example the Prospect Park Alliance is holding their fundraiser the same night. Tickets start at $350.)

        Yes--it is a fundraiser for an important organization, and beyond that is actually incredible value. I've gone the last two years and absolutely stuffed my face. This year, with the addition of 4 dessert trucks and Moet donating the wine, I'm thinking I will end up consuming more than my $80 share of food and beverages. Not to mention it is always a really great time.

          and tax deductible. Hopefully the Biryani Cart has a good showing, I love those guys.
