2008_08_vendy.jpgIt's time again for the battle of the street carts -- this year's Vendy Awards are scheduled for October 18th from 3 - 7 p.m. at the Tobacco Warehouse in Dumbo. Tickets are now on sale for $80, with proceeds benefitting the Urban Justice Center's Street Vendor Project, a nonprofit protecting the rights of vendors throughout the city. Nominate your favorite vendor today. Who knows, maybe he or she will become one of the finalists and be propelled into Vendy fame along with the likes of the Hallo Berlin cart, Sammy's Halal, and the Dosa Man.
