There are few things more tantalizing than the promise of cheap food to make local foodiots ignore brutal weather to wait on a line. The latest scene was in the East Village yesterday, where people stood in the dank humidity for a chance to eat $1.50 plates of pierogies. EV Grieve says there may have been around 150 people waiting in a large line that wrapped around the block.

The restaurant rolled back prices to their original 1954 iterations yesterday evening for a scant 54 minutes; if you weren't able to order before then, you were SOL. Veselka plans to do more nights of cheap fare, according to Eater. A box of Mrs. T's costs like $3 JUST SAYING!
