Greetings Greenpointers! Did you unleash your inner child this past week after the snow storm? Perhaps a good snow angel or a feisty snowball fight is just what we need to get the gloominess out of our system.

While events are still sparse this weekend, we have rounded up a solid list for your local enjoyment this weekend. 

Saturday, January 15th

Williamsburg Bites Brooklyn Food Tour will be taking place this Saturday, 12 – 3 PM. Kicking off at Williamsburg Mini Mall (218 Bedford Avenue), you will get to eat your way through one of Brooklyn’s most desirable neighborhoods. On top of this gastro experience, you will also get to delve into the rich culinary history of the area. Tasting line-up and tickets available here.

Paloma Coffee and Bakery at 349 Union Avenue is now open 7 days a week, with extended afternoon hours! Get any pastry warmed up to order and try out their new espresso – made by their new La Marzocco Linea PB in Gold and White. Swing by 8 AM – 4 PM. Ring up that friend for that long overdue catch up. 

It may be cold outside. But we can definitely keep one another warm with food, laughter, giving and… more delicious food!
