For the first year the Vendy Awards, the Oscars of street food, are coming to Los Angeles, and we have a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky person. For the past five years, the Vendys have been one of our favorite food events in New York. A whole day of street food noshing, all while raising money for the Street Vendor Project, the movement to protect vendors' rights—talk about a glorious way to spend a day.
We're happy to see that our Southern Californian pals can partake in the fun this year. Next week the Vendys L.A. committee will announce which six to eight Los Angeles vendors will be competing, after tallying up all the web nominations.
To enter to win a pair of tickets you'll need to be in the Los Angeles area on Saturday, May 15 (it's at MacArthur Park). Just leave a comment here and answer, what's your favorite street food city, and why? If you don't win, cheer up, and get yourself a ticket. They're worth the $50 (c'mon that's like six to eight meals, and bounties of fun), and are selling out fast.
One (1) person will be chosen at random among the eligible comments below. Comments will close Wednesday, May 5 at noon ET. The standard Serious Eats contest rules apply.
