1. Fall food crawl (via Food to Eat)

FoodtoEat is hosting a Sandy benefit crawl today from 12-4pm to get people to restaurants that need your business. Tickets can be purchased online or at a Evelyn Drinkery: 171 Ave C.

Sales go to a donation pot that will be split between participating venues and used for their recovery efforts.

"Food Crawlers" receive a map of the participating venues after they buy a ticket, and from 3-4pm everyone meets at Kafana for an "after party" including entertainment and a raffle. 

Buy your ticket online here.
