Teenage NYC band Laundry Day and alt/indie singer Your Smith were among the acts who performed throughout the food-focused weekend.
Over the Oct. 5-6 weekend, thousands of gourmands flocked to Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, N.Y. for one of the city’s most anticipated food festivals: the New York City iteration of The Infatuation's EEEEEATSCON, now in its second year (and this time taking place over two whole days, making it the biggest yet).
Festivalgoers lined up for exclusive food items from local spots, such as a Shake Shack x Uncle Boons collab, and s’mores Crullers from Daily Provisions, as well as for restaurants who traveled far and wide. Hattie B’s Hot Chicken flew in from Nashville (and earned the Longest Line Award), Portland, Oregon’s Salt & Straw Handmade Ice Cream had devotees salivating, and London hit Indian restaurant Brigadiers was one of a few who made a trip from across the pond.
Special libations abounded, too, with Las Vegas' Palms bringing their Unknown Bar to the Stadium, and a Captain Morgan Speakeasy Tiki Bar serving cocktails in coveted coconut cups.
