Daniel Holzman and Michael Chernow, the team behind New York City's wildly popular (and ever expanding) The Meatball Shop, have been rumored to be scouting spaces in LA. But, in the meantime, they're bringing The Meatball Shop west with a one night stand at Roy Choi's Sunny Spot in Venice on September 7 from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. (seating is first come first serve). The trio will together prepare a bunch of The Meatball Shop's ballsy dishes and Choi is planning to craft his own unique ball for the night. It's a shame they didn't ask Starry Kitchen's Nguyen Tran and his green balls to participate. But, there's always next time.
In any event, and this is random, but creatives at Vans sneakers designed limited edition kicks with imagery from The Meatball Shop and Sunny Spot. Those who attend this meal will have the chance to win shoes throughout the eve. [ELA]
