Vendy Awards

Media Title

In Philly, the concept of “street food” used to mean dirty water dogs or a pretzel, and the thought of handing out awards for that? Geddafuggouddahere. Now, of course, we’re in the age of gourmet street fare (our stomachs don’t mind one bit) and hell, why not pit some of the city’s finest mobile chefs against one another to find out whose cuisine reigns supreme? Ergo, the second annual Vendys—the “Gastro-Grammys,” the “Oscars of Street Food”—in which eight finalists will vie in a no-holds-barred, four-hour cook-off to determine who’ll hoist the coveted Vendy Cup (and probably triple their lunch-rush in the next couple weeks). Philly blogger Anna “Schmitten Kitten” Goldfarb is your host, and the competing chefs will have to impress an esteemed panel of judges that includes Tony Luke Jr., Marcie Turney and Joy Manning. Your ticket gets you plenty of kickass food and beer, so whatever happens today, you’re the real winner. -Michael Alan Goldberg
