On Saturday, food lovers lined up on Governors Island for the Vendy Awards, an annual street-food celebration and benefit organized by the Urban Justice Center. The non-profit works to support city vendors, providing access to licenses and advocating for vendor rights.
This year’s judges included Food & Wine restaurant editor Kate Krader, the Das Racist crew, and chef/TV personality Eddie Huang. Below, a look at the winners plus a few highlights:
"At the center of the criticism is the chief articulator of Bush's imperial presidency," we wrote in 1992, "the man who wrote the legal rationale for the Gulf War, the Panama invasion, and the officially sanctioned kidnapping of foreign nationals abroad"

Inside: Paloma Picasso's purse, Joel Steinberg's jail cell, Andre Soltner's refrigerator, Phil Simms' locker, Eileen Ford's living room, Helen Gurley Brown's desk drawer, John Lennon's FBI File, Charles Busch's closet, Radu's medicine chest & Sheila Metzner's bedroom, among other places you don't belong
