2nd Annual Momo Crawl
Jackson Heights Plaza (37th Rd. btw. 74th St. & Broadway, Queens)
$2+, plus cost of momos
With the opening of Friends Cafe last week, there are now 19 places serving momos in the Little India vicinity of Jackson Heights. These Himalayan dumplings quietly have become the most popular dish in Queens.
To celebrate this influx of Himalayans to the area, I am organizing my 2nd Momo Crawl. This population of Tibetans, Nepalese, and the surrounding cultures have had such a positive effect on our area, I want to be strong in welcoming new immigrants to New York City. These entrepreneurs of our area, these locals who have the courage not to open up a Subway, need our support.
Last year we kept it to 30 people because of space limitations, but this year we have use of the Jackson Heights Diversity Plaza and are now aiming for MASSIVE.
At the meeting point, attendees will be given a map of the area in exchange for 2 bills of any denomination they choose. These maps will be stamped at each location, and will assist us to pick a winner at the end of the crawl. The winner will be presented with a giant momo trophy, which you should look for displayed somewhere on 37th Road by the end of next week.
