Little India Food Crawl: Agenda & RSVP for 5/16

Posted by Anisha | Posted in , , | Posted on 5/13/2010

It was only a month ago when I decided to host a Little India Food Crawl! Since then, I've received an overwhelming response from readers, tweeple, and fellow bloggers. Throughout the crawl, there will be informational packets to link what you're eating with the region in India. We'll also be touring the markets for some groceries to take home and hopefully see a demonstration or two!

The crawl will begin on May 16, 2010 at 1:00PM (eat a light breakfast or just fast) and will formally end at 6:00PM. Join and leave the crawl when you desire, but keep in mind each destination will focus on different regional cuisine. Every stop in the crawl is in walking distance of each other, so just park your car, join the group, and eat your Little Indian heart out! All times are estimated -- once you RSVP w/ your email address, contact information will be provided to make sure you don't get lost!

In addition to eating... we will be in and out of local markets (will school y'all on ingredients to make the same food at home!) and perusing stores. If you're feeling really adventurous, get henna tattoos from Ziba or your eyebrows threaded!

What to bring?
* your appetite and fat pants
* camera for food porn, of course!
* Twitter enabled cell phones to make everyone drool/jealous! Use #LittleIndia during our crawl!

How much $ should I bring for the crawl?

Well, how hungry are you? I think each person won't be able to move after $10-15 worth of food, provided we're sharing. Bring some extra cash if you want to buy some goodies from the markets, trinkets from stores, and the like.
