The Lower East Side B.I.D. is celebrating “all things apple” on Orchard Street again this year with it’s third annual NYC Apple Day. They write:
There will be activities and culinary delights for all ages, including upstate New York apple producers Red Jacket Orchards proudly presenting countless varieties of apples.
Further, a wide-array of local restaurants will be offering apple-related dishes including Georgia’s Eastside BBQ presenting Applewood Smoked BBQ Sandwiches, German inspired creations by Café Katja, South African cuisine by Bunny Chow, among many other delicious participants. To be sure that no member of the family is left out, The Mark Miller Gallery will have an interactive (free) art table for kids and Make-Up Mania will bring a fantastic face painting booth just for kids.
On the entertainment front, NYC Apple Day will feature free performances by some of New York City’s up and coming artists, performing live on Orchard Street. Kicking the day off will be the hilarious rapping and comedy of Fantasy Grandma. Featured performers presented by L.E.S. Resident, Lisa-Thi Beskar will include Australian Sensation Tyrone Noonan Band, New York based singer-songwriters/ rising stars Stella Winkelman (of Bell Book and Scandal) and Jamie Bendell, and local blues-rockers Cows Like Shrimp with Sefton Stallard.
