The event runs from 7 to 10 p.m. on Friday, March 13 (early access begins at 6 p.m. with VIP tickets; 6:30 p.m. with Early Entry tickets), at the Metropolitan Pavilion (125 West 18th Street). We're also accepting applications for volunteers from now through February 27, if you'd like to assist the Village Voice team on-site at the event. All volunteers will receive a free general admission ticket to our fourth annual Choice Streets food truck tasting event on May 5. To apply, you must be 21 or older. Head on over to the application if you're interested.
DJ Jonathan "JC" Clarke of Q104.3 NY will provide music for the event, and a portion of this party's proceeds go to Slow Foods NYC.
