A Hot Mess on Hester Street

Posted on | October 17, 2010 | 2 Comments

Yesterday’s Grub Street Food Festival was a colossal disaster.  Hosted by New York Magazine in the same space as the Hester Street Fair (Hester & Essex), the tiny area was packed with eager foodies & virtually impossible to navigate.  The entire event was totally unenjoyable.  I took a few steps in, turned 180 & scuttled off thinking “What! No Wafels & Dinges?”.  I guess I really didn’t miss anything as news had it that most of the vendors ended up selling out before the event ended.  Full vendors list here.
