This Saturday, we are forecasted to have sun with a side of clouds. And Sunday is looking to be rather stormy…then again, Mother Nature can be flippant! So do check your apps (or just look out your window) before heading out to ensure maximum enjoyment in Greenpoint this weekend.

Di An Di (68 Greenpoint Avenue) is now serving lunch all weekend, starting at noon. I salivate just thinking about their Cha Gio alongside a piping hot bowl of Pho Thin Ha Noi…it doesn’t have to be a dream! Head on over and support a small local business this weekend.
And that’s a thick healthy wrap to this weekend’s listing. Go forth and embark on your Greenpoint adventures!
