Upcoming Weekend Fun Eating Things

A-Pou's Taste
The time of year has come where, if you let it, your weekend can become jam-packed with fun foodie events. There are two specific events coming up that you should totally try to attend. The second one (but first up today) is the International Meats Local on May 6th. The Vendy Awards and New Amsterdam Market have teamed up to see if five street food vendors can reproduce their dishes using humanely raised meat and regionally sourced ingredients. Yay for sustainable street meat! But if sweets are more your thing, then this weekend will be a win for you.

NYC Food Blogger Bake Sale
Yay for food bloggers baking things and donating the money to Share Our Strength! We're generous like that (though Brownie and I won't be in attendance due to book-related activities). The bake sale happens at this Saturday's Brooklyn Flea. Ken from Hungry Rabbit and Lillian from Sweet by Sillianah have recruited a bunch of bloggers and businesses to donate delicious goodies for the buying. For the complete list, click here--it's long, but oh so, drool-worthy.

For tickets to the International Meats Local--it's only $22--click here. Remember, that's next Saturday at the New Amsterdam Market on South Street between Beekman Street and Peck Slip.

thanks for sharing! I went to Smorasburg (Brooklym Flea) in Willamsburg last Saturday--sooo good. And I love that you don't have to pay a cover to get in. I'll have to check out these events, too!
