NEW UPDATES AS OF THU 10/24....Roadfood Tour in New York City - Saturday, October 26, 2013

Greetings fellow Roadfooders!!  I'd love to put together another tour of the city I have called "home" for the past 10 years and I've been doing some research to create what I hope will be a great day of walking, sightseeing and epic eating!  Some possible dates that currently work for me are:  SAT 08/17, 08/24, 08/31, 09/07, 09/14, 09/21 10/05 and 10/26.  I also have dates in October and November but just wanted to put this out there and see who might be interested.  A number of these places open around 8am and others open at 11:30am so I figure we could knock out a few in the morning and some more in the afternoon.  Most of these are fairly small and don't take reservations but depending on the size of the group I don't think we should have any problems.  The only place that I think we should get to right when they open is Lombardi's as they usually have a line but getting there around 11:15am should make for a short wait.
Let the comments begin...
