Vendy Awards Hit LA, May 15 at MacArthur Park

This was definitely bound to happen. A mainstay in NYC, now LA is getting a piece of the Vendy Awards, a fundraiser cook-off featuring LA's stellar street eats. First off, vote for your favorite street food vendor until April 15, and the top contenders will battle it out on Saturday, May 15 from 4 to 7PM at MacArthur Park in Westlake. Tix for this all-you-can-eat street food fest (includes booze!) cost $50, and proceeds from the event support the movement for vendors’ rights in LA (like Asociacion de Loncheros de LA, CHIRLA, and UCLA Downtown Labor Center). Competing vendors shall be announced May 1, with judging determined by a tbd food-centric panel. Dishes will be evaluated based on flavor, portability, and personality. Let the games begin.
