We’ve often heard that a bad day in NYC is better than a good day anywhere else, and we’re here to tell you… this couldn’t be more true. Even on the worst of days (think: humidity & crowded subways), we couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. With this in mind, meet our new series, The City, in which we’ll introduce you to the best of the concrete jungle. From restaurants, museums, and everything in between, these are the places you need to know whether you’re a New Yorker yourself or simply visiting.
If you’ve been keeping up with our recent venture down to Broadway Bites, you know that it’s no secret that we’re obsessed with all things food. For those of you who missed out on all the lobster rolls and Momofuku cookies, there’s still one more chance for you to sample some of New York City’s most celebrated restaurants before the summer is up. Enter Full Moon Music Festival, taking place this year on August 1st from 3:00pm to sun rise at the Brooklyn Mirage. With panoramic views of the beautiful Manhattan skyline, an eclectic lineup with the likes of Mothxr, Yelle, Oliver Nelson, and Tensnake headlining, and top vendors like Canal, Mile End/Black Seed, La Crepe, Battery Harris, Northern Tiger, and Tacombi, you can treat yourself to both a dinner and a show.
Tired of the same old fare of chicken nuggets and french fries? Wind down the last of festival season with a twist on traditional festival food. For the first time ever at a music festival, Uma Temakeira will be making every New Yorker’s dreams a reality by serving its famous sushi burritos. Renowned for their cone-like sushi hand rolls, the classic sushi burrito will be made with fresh salmon, tuna, spicy tobanjan mayo, julienned carrots, and tempura all wrapped up in a sheet of crisp nori.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite vendors and what the they’ll be serving up at the Full Moon Festival. If you’re dying to make it out to the Brooklyn Mirage next Saturday for the Full Moon Fest, tickets can be purchased online here. Just don’t take too long to think about it… there’s a limited amount, and they go f-a-s-t so be sure to pick one up before they’re all sold out.
