The Vendy Awards are back!
It may not be as flashy as the Academy Awards or as validating as the Pulitzer Prize, but let's face it: the Vendys will probably affect your life more than any other award around. The Oscars may determine your film choice for one night, but the Vendys could change your eating habits for days, months, or even years to come.
This year's contest is a tough one, serving up everything from midtown biryani to Queens' falafel. Check out the videos below to get a sneak peek of the finalists before they face off for the title on September 26th.
