Here we go, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and the Super Bowl is charging onto our screens. We certainly have a fun weekend for everybody ahead of us here in Greenpoint!
First off, a friendly reminder: did you make your Valentine’s Day reservations yet? There are tons of great suggestions for you to book a stellar meal for your date just around the corner. Stop by the Greenpointers Valentine’s Market this Sunday to grab something for your sweetheart and support local vendors in the process (talk about a win-win!)
As usual, we hope you tag us in your escapades and let us know what you thought of our top picks for weekend wonders.

Antidote Apothecary has been a regular North Brooklyn staple, floating around from their summer location just off Pulaski Bridge on McGuinness Blvd to share their tea blends and insight on herbal remedies via their active (and very informative!) Instagram account.
This Saturday, at 242 Franklin Street, the apothecary and tea bar will be launching the grand opening of their new space, shared with Friend of All Glass. Drop in Saturday anytime from 4 – 7 PM to learn about all they have to offer and to learn more about elixirs and rituals that can help enrich your life in healthy and all-natural ways.
