More Food Trucks Announced for Our Choice Streets Event
Laura June Kirsch for Choice Streets
Our annual Choice Streets tasting event is quickly approaching: On Tuesday, May 5, 2015, more than twenty of the city's best food trucks will descend on the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum on Pier 86 (West 46th Street and Twelfth Avenue, 212-245-0072), where they'll dole out bites of their best dishes.
We'd previously announced that you can expect to find Korilla BBQ, Langos Truck, Solber Pupusas, Sweet Chili, Valducci's Pizza, and Yankee Doodle Dandy's.
Now we're excited to tell that you can also expect six more participants: Big D's Grub Domo Taco Gorilla Cheese Ponti Rossi Snowday The Treats Trucks
We've also enlisted mariachi band Mariachi Flor de Toloache, the first and only established all-female mariachi band in New York City, to provide entertainment for the evening, because it will be Cinco de Mayo, after all.
We're selling three tiers of tickets this year. General Admission ($55) gets you in the door at 8 p.m., and you'll be able to taste something from every truck and drink as much as you'd like. Early Entry ($65) comes with the same perks, though you'll be able to get in the door at 7:30 p.m. Spring for the VIP fare ($85) and you'll get all that plus access at 7 p.m., a special VIP gift bag, and a special VIP-only cocktail. Admission to the museum is included with every ticket. Head on over to the Choice Streets website to purchase.
We've also begun looking for volunteers for our event; assist us here, and you'll receive a free general admission ticket to the Village Voice's fifth annual Brooklyn Pour Craft Beer Festival on September 26. You must be 21 or older, and you'll need to fill out an application.
Some of the proceeds from this event will go to Slow Foods, our charitable partner. Find more information about the event on the Choice Streets website.
