Here’s a fundraiser befitting the People’s Playground.
Seventeen food establishments in Sandy-pummeled Coney Island are
offering small discounts — a free glass of wine here or a gratis soda
there — next week to celebrate the neighborhood’s feisty resilience.
The four-day foodie fest, launching Monday, is called Footprints in the Sand.
“The aim is to show that places are back and open for business,” said
Elisa Balabram, a spokeswoman for the Local Development Corporation of
East New York and the Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Program.
Bargains include a free vino with an entree at Gargiulo’s, a soda when
you spend $5 at Ruby’s Bar & Grill, and even a barking cheap
five-cent Nathan’s hot dog for every one purchased at the regular price.
Other participants include Mi Candileja restaurant, Peggy O’Neill’s bar and William’s Candy.
