The sun might be setting on Summer ’17, but New Yorkers know how to squeeze every last ounce of fun out of the season before sweaters, leggings, and the ever-ubiquitous #PSL take over the city. Case in point? The Meadows Music and Arts Festival, an annual three-day outdoor music and food event taking place this weekend at Citi Field. Boasting a diverse, genre-busting lineup of artists from across the musical spectrum, festival attendants can expect to hear some of the biggest names in the industry, including Jay-Z, Migos, Nas, Gorillaz, LL Cool J, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bassnectar, and Weezer. If you plan on joining the rest of the ravers, rappers, and rock fans out in Queens for a jam-packed weekend, you’re bound to get hungry and grab a bite at one of The Meadow’s many food stands.
This year, you’re in luck; instead of shelling out $12 for an overpriced slice of mediocre pizza or a lukewarm burger and fries, you can expect to sample some of New York’s finest culinary offerings. Get out your iPhones and get ready to snap those Instagram pics – here is our ultimate food and drink guide to help you make the most of your weekend and keep your #hanger at bay so you can enjoy the different music and activities at Meadows 2017.
