Last week I gave you some events going on that were raising money for various charities and Hurricane Sandy relief. Well, the fundraising and humanitarian work hasn’t stopped and many people, restaurants, and bars are still on the bandwagon, thank goodness.
Aside from the awesome #dineoutNYC movement, you can hit up the Second Annual Peck Slip Pickle Festival on Sunday from 11pm to 5pm at the New Amsterdam Market. This vivacious market is located in the South Street Seaport, which, as you may have guessed got wrecked during the storm. Luckily, the market’s offices are fine and they are able to host the festival.
So, while you get your pickle fill with cukes from Brooklyn Brine, Guss’ Pickles, Sour Puss Pickles, Rick’s Picks, and a handful other East Coast purveyors, do so knowing your $3 suggested donation will go towards the Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Fund. Plus, you can learn about Persian pickles with cookbook author Louisa Shafia and make kimchi with Lauryn Chun from Mother-in-Law’s Kimchi. At the end of the day, this is one pickle New Yorkers will feel happy to be in.
