Wake up and smell the vinegar, because the annual Lower East Side Pickle Day is almost here. Residents can once again relish in the briny festivities this Sunday; festivities that are now re-established after the Hurricane Sandy-induced hiatus back in 2012.

This year, Orchard Street between Houston and Delancey Streets will, as in years prior, showcase more than fifteen local picklers, alongside 30+ restaurateurs who will serve up “pickle themed delicacies.” In addition to games, music and such, there will also be pickle trivia for the aficionado, a home pickling contest (mason jars at the ready), and a clairvoyant who will profess your pickle future. Is a sour outlook in this case a good thing? Only time will tell.

LES Pickle Day is happening on Sunday, October 4, from 12-5pm. Check out the full list of vendors below.

The Reason You Don’t See Trash Cans on the Lower East Side

You may have noticed the lack of trash cans on street corners around the Lower East Side this week. Vanished seemingly overnight.
