How to Make Mulled Hungarian Wine the Easy Peasy Way

Benedek Pinot Noir (Palinkerie Fine Hungarian Imports)

I don’t remember the point at which the simple days of working on a wishlist of gifts in the days leading up the the holidays were over. All I know is this time of year hasn’t exactly been a time to kick back and relax for a long time. As much as I love shopping for gifts and the festivities surrounding it, it’s time consuming and takes a lot of work. Add to it, work on putting together a massive market, and you are going to want to look for some short cuts. But since we’ve set a high bar on creative seasonal cocktails that are served at the markets, we didn’t want to dilute quality either. Continue reading

Featured Vendor: Peacock & Pineapples

Winter is upon us and you know what that means– it’s time to cozy up in our favorite hand-knit scarves and hats.

Peacock & Pineapples is just the place to satisfy all of those seasonal knit-wear needs.

We chatted with Suzanne, our fellow Greenpointer, who creates these comfy, yet stylish, winter looks.

GP: How did you learn to make these beautiful knit creations?

Suzanne: I learned how to knit in 2003 while living in remote town in eastern Washington State. My Grandmother had always knit, and it proved to be a good way for us to spend time together when I came back to New York and began visiting her in a nursing home. She had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s a couple of years prior, but, as with all patients with memory loss, she retained the knowledge of the things learned in her youth. Continue reading
