More than 20 of the city’s favorite food trucks will be set up on Pier 86, with the sparkling city as a backdrop for food, drink and fun. For your ticket price, you’ll enjoy a free tour of the USS Intrepid while you nibble on delectable munchies and sip on exotic libations.

This is a very cool thing, and it would be really great if you could lend your support to help make it a reality.

Luis Peña, a Professor of ophthalmology in Santiago, Chile, has designed an intricate LEGO model of the HMS Beagle and if the project gets enough supporters, this epic model could be available in stores for us all!
