Remember when we said uptown is the new downtown? Well the Vendy Awards are following suit and heading to Harlem. Every Sunday through Nov 23, the street-eats organization will bring some of the city's best food trucks to an open-air market, offering some of the best grab-and-go bites from vendors like Nuchas, Wafels & Dinges and Zha Pan Asian.
From noon–6pm, you can walk through Vendy Plaza at La Marqueta (1590 Park Ave at E 115 St) to fill up on Snowday’s maple-syrup–drizzled snacks (think maple-cheddar grilled cheese), Ice & Vice’s floats (tea-infused ice cream and hot chai-spiced pear cider) and ice cream sandwiches (toasted milk ice cream between chocolate-chip brownies) and Khao Man Gai’s signature Thai-spiced chicken and rice. There’ll also be a beer bar manned by Brooklyn Brewery and live music by Latin-Jazz fusion band Trombeatz.
After stuffing yourself silly, explore the nabe: We found the best activities in Harlem.
