There are lot of food-related events happening in the neighborhood this weekend. The 7th Annual Dumpling Eating Contest in Sara D. Roosevelt Park tomorrow will probably be the most entertaining. Five-time defending champion Joe “Gentleman” Manchetti is the man to beat. He devoured 66 dumplings in two minutes back in 2008! The contest takes place at 1pm, on the Houston Street end of the park. It’s part of the larger Dumpling Festival, which begins at noon. You’ll be able to sample dumplings from all over the world, including Italy, Malaysia, China and Poland. Check out the festival’s web site for more info.
