I caved…bought the Apple Crisp and Vanilla Pumpkin candles from Trader Joe’s. My apartment has been smelling like fall heaven. All I’m waiting for is for the huge tree outside my window to yield to Mother Nature. It’s a stubborn one — still lush with its greens. How have you been welcoming fall into your life?
We have a rad list of happenings to offer you this weekend. Get out there and enjoy fall in Greenpoint!
Saturday, October 1
Feeling like some art and live music this weekend? We have just the event for you! Swing by FourFiveSix Bar (199 Richardson Street) anytime between 1 – 5 p.m. Your eyes will get to ogle Dolla$’s new series of canvas paintings, your ears will get to feast on music by an eight-piece band, get flash tattoos on a whim, all while enjoying rad DJ sets. Tickets available here.
