@VillageVoice’s #ChoiceStreets Recap

The weather took a break from being completely crappy for just a bit to welcome The Village Voice’s Choice Streets last Tuesday. Thank goodness, because the event was slated to happen, rain or shine!

We New Yorkers love our food trucks, and this was definitely a celebration of the food truck, with 20 trucks offering sample-sized items from their menus.

It was held at the Intrepid Air & Sea Museum, which has a scenic location on a pier on the Hudson River. The museum is actually a retired aircraft carrier with fighter jets and other aircraft (and now the space shuttle Enterprise) perched on top and around it.

Unique venues like this are one of the things I like most about Village Voice’s events. Previous events were held at an armory and an historic bank tower.

DJ Finger on the Pulse provided the soundtrack for the night. For $30 general admission and $50 VIP, this sold out event was a great deal.

Here are some of the highlights of Choice Streets.
