The 5th annual Grub Street Food Festival is back tomorrow at the Hester Street Fair.

The event takes place on New York City’s Lower East Side from 11AM- 5PM.

Last year Kim, Lucas and I attended the festival for the first time. We had a great time and tried out some awesome food. Check out my post about our experience here.

11 Summer Music Festivals To Consider

Back in college many summers were filled with attending concerts, especially a couple of music festivals. I used to love spending long days at packed venues like Randall’s Island (in NYC) hearing lots of great music with friends.

Fodor’s: 14 Festivals To Attend Before You Die

This past September, we finally got to attend a festival that I’ve been dying to go to for years- Oktoberfest. We had an incredible time and I’d love to go again in the future.

Fodor’s included Oktoberfest in a slideshow that was of interest to me, 14 Festivals To Attend Before You Die.

Festivals included in the slideshow take place all around the world. Some of the festivals I’ve heard of and would love to check out in person, while some of them were new to me.
