Serious Eats: New York
Take a Mother's Day Sweets Tour of the East Village with Stray Boots
We're partnering with Stray Boots to make interactive food walking tours around New York. After our first foray into Chinatown, we're now doing something sweet: a sweets tour of the East Village just in time for Mother's Day.
Like a cross between a tour and a scavenger hunt, Stray Boots's cell phone-guided experiences send you "challenges" at different locations that you complete to earn points and learn fun facts about each stop along the way. You can play by iPhone app or even by using any phone via text message or a mobile web browser. And of course our tours are all about the food.
On this sweets tour you'll hit up macarons, soft serve, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, and more over the course of two to three hours. Use the code SWEETMOM when purchasing and the tour will cost $3, a 75% discount off the normal price. It's a great introduction to the city's sweets scene.
