1. On Sunday from 12-5 pm, DayLife will take over Orchard Street between East Houston and Delancey with food, a live DJ, shopping, and ping pong. Lower East Side vendors like Blue Ribbon Sushi Izakaya, Brooklyn Taco, The Meatball Shop, Melt Bakery, Mexicue, Mission Chinese Food, Russ and Daughters, and Sons of Essex will be selling food from pushcarts and (unlike Smorgasburg) there will be plenty of picnic tables…and an AstroTurf lawn? Sounds intriguing.
2. Now through October 25, the Eventi will host Hester Nights every Thursday from 4-9. Many of the fair’s popular food vendors, including Pies ‘n’ Thighs, La Sonrisa, Purple Yam and Little Muenster, will set up shop in the hotel’s open air plaza but, if that just won’t do, there’s a new Brighton Beach-themed food court inside featuring Go Burger, BLT Fish Shack, and a tiki bar. Sounds even more intriguing.
