Thanks to the wrath of Hurricane Sandy, last fall was fully sour for pickle fanatics. Winds, floods, and lack of power in the wake of the late-October storm completely sidelined the annual Lower East Side Pickle Day. That was then. The event returns next month for the first time since 2010. The Lower East Side BID sends along word that you should grab a Sharpie and circle Sunday, October 27 on your calendars.

Pickle Day 2013 will be much different than years past, and not just because its new location on Orchard between Houston and Delancey. This time around it’s running in tandem with the semi-frequent DayLife series brought to the neighborhood by the BID.
