Rely on the East River Ferry to get to work? Pleased that it’s back up and running from Greenpoint? Well, here’s some news to make your morning ferry ride even cheerier…
This Sunday 10/6/13 is the 4th Annual Sugar Sweets Festival at City Reliquary Museum (370 Metropolitan Ave) from 10am-4pm.
Donate freshly baked goodies to be sold at the festival. All proceeds will benefit the museum.
If you’re feeling competitive – enter your delicious (and non-professional) baked sweets to be judged by food writers and professional bakers for a chance to win prizes from The Brooklyn Kitchen and more!
Or just come and stuff your face, enjoy great music, make an apron and have an awesome day – all in support of City Reliquary.
Visit sugarsweets.org or email Jeff (at) cityreliquary.com for more information.
It may be off the beaten path, but the best things in life don’t just land on your corner. A new bakery called Ovenly opened last Friday on Greenpoint Ave between West St and the East River, near the soon to open Transmitter Park. If you haven’t stopped in yet, you are majorly missing out on biscuit perfection and cupcake elegance, not to mention cookie genius. And they have savory treats, too!
Agatha and Erin, the ladies behind this recent start-up began their company right out of Paulie Gee’s kitchen, where I am convinced a little fairy lives whose magic wand turns food start-ups into major successes. Bacon Marmalade, Sea Bean Goods & Mike’s Hot Honey all began beside that big pizza oven, as well.
