Make it a Lower East Side Weekend!!

Hester Street Fair
There are PLENTY of things to tell you about my NYC Wine & Food Festival, and I will be giving you the low down shortly, but until then let's think about the weekend, shall we? Two VERY important food-centric activities will be happening for those of you sticking around town (I am not, I will be stuffing my face with BBQ!)

Sigmund Pretzel
First up is Saturday where Hester Street Fair is teaming up with the good folks at Grub Street to present the Grub Street Food Festival from 10am to 6pm. Some of our favoritest people should be there including Luke's Lobster, Pies 'n' Thighs, Sigmund Pretzelshop, the Vendy Dessert winner Kelvin Natural Slush, and another Vendy finalist Patacon Pisao. And if you need help burning off these delicious treats, Santos House Party is showing up to help you get down! For a full listing, click here. It almost makes me want to stay-almost, not quite, I'm still skipping town.

McClure's Pickles at the UnFancy Food Show
Then on Sunday you should still make a bee-line for the LES because one of the best days of the year will be happening: the 10th Annual New York City International Pickle Day! From 11am to 4:30pm, loads of local vendors are celebrating all that is cucumber and brine including Peanut Butter & Co, Roni-Sue (maybe the infamous pickle truffle will be making a special appearance!), Saxelby Cheesemongers, McClure's Pickles, Brooklyn Brine (a jar of which I just finished off the other night!) and so many more! For that full list, click here. Maybe I'll search for some fried pickles in celebration!
