Yeah, already that time of the year: Eater Bonnet Parade. And three years on the row sunny as hell. Some new faces, some new hats, some new costumes and some … well … came back. Remember Bad Bunny from last year?
There was a lot of excitement about today’s Paella 1st annual Parade at the new Water Taxi beach, at South Street Seaport. Even though we had prepaid tickets, we didn’t eat a rice of paella. The event was heavily oversold, around 900 tickets for 100 paella’s “take away boxes”, some sources say. The take away boxes was ridiculous (see photo), come on people, 25 bucks for that! Even with wine! Only two positive things about this event: there was certainly plenty of wine, and the crowd was given at option to be reimbursed. Hopefully they,who ever organized the whole mess, learned from their mistakes for next year’s Paella Parade.
