through September 23: Real Italian New York Style

(repost from last week, but still accurate and still fun! GO!)

It’s Italian food lovers favorite time of year. The 86th Feast of San Genarro will take over Manhattan’s Little Italy for 11 days, filling the streets with wafting scents aromas of grilled meats, vegetables and fresh pastry. A commemorative parade, music and street performances will accompany the multitude of street food offerings. Trust me, you haven’t experiences a real Italian festival until you’ve experienced Mulberry Street for San Genarro. Full event info can be found by visiting the festivals official site here. Nolita /Little Italy (Mulberry St. between Canal and Houston, Grand St. between Center and Mott), times vary.
