It's supposed to be a beautiful Fall weekend in NYC people! And considering there's only so many of those left to enjoy, why not spend it hopping around the East Village whilst drinking and eating? I like it.
The East Village is home to many popular and delicious restaurants, and Fourth Arts Block is giving you the opportunity to sample bites and drinks from them this Saturday, Oct 22nd at their annual East Village Eats Tasting Tour. Think banh mi sandwiches from Jimmy's No. 43, spicy Korean fried chicken from MONO+MONO, buttery shrimp rolls from Luke's Lobster, tender carnitas from Hecho en Dumbo, a half-pint of craft beer from Idle Hands bar, and lots more. Tickets are originally $50 per person, which isn't bad to begin with considering all you're getting, but Thrillist is offering these tickets at the deeply discounted rate of $29. Holler! New Yorkers love a good deal…and a good meal.

Please note the tour is entirely self-guided from 1-5 pm, so you can move at your own pace, but all vouchers must be picked up by 4 pm.
