Chicago's first ever Vendy Awards will take place on October 5th at 1:00 pm at Kendall College. While a great excuse to sample the offerings from some of the best mobile vendors in the city, proceeds will also go to Slow Food Chicago and the Asociación de Vendedores Ambulantes, which helps protect the rights of food truck vendors. To see what you're in for, check out the recap of this year's Vendy Awards in New York.
General admission tickets are $55 and can be purchased on Eventbrite. But we're also giving away two pairs right here.

A winner will be selected at random on Tuesday, October 1st at 5 p.m. The standard Serious Eats contest rules apply.
