If its Saturday, it must be Chinatown
Remember the famous line “If its Saturday, it must be Chinatown”.
Ok I made that one up, but this Saturday, Chinatown is surely the place to be.
A street food festival is in order, and that is where i will be. The weather seems to want to play spoilsport, but what the heck, I am going.
As their official site informs
Back by overwhelming demand, over 50 restaurants, tea houses, bakeries and specialty food shops will offer $1 or $2 tasting plates throughout tasting corridors on Mott, Mulberry, Baxter, Bayard, Pell, Doyers and Mosco Streets in Chinatown, NYC. Mott Street will be closed to traffic from Canal to Worth for your strolling and munching pleasure. The only traffic will be from the other eaters and the occasional dancing lion! [ link ]
There are other activities planned around…..like writing the funniest fortune cookie message, et al.
My advice, dont get distracted, just EAT !!
