Really? Schools closed? When I was a kid, a civil war needed to break out before they closed NYC Public Schools. Lucky little bastards. They better be sledding somewhere and not inside playing video games. Why I oughta… Continue reading

Thanks for coming out to our Fall Market this past Saturday to support local shopping, artists and craftsmanship! It was such a wonderful day and we had such a blast.
Thanks to all our talented vendors who worked so hard to bring their beautiful work for all of us to enjoy. Thanks to our sponsors Brooklyn Brewery, Sailor Jerry and Cafe Grumpy for providing the refreshments. We especially enjoyed the empanadas from Cafecito Bogota and sweet treats from Ovenly. Thanks to Marofoto and Yucca for the great photos and to Yana and Jon for working tirelessly to make it all happen. Thanks to From the Source for providing the space.
Stay tuned for announcements for our Holiday Market, which is right around the corner!!!
To wake up at 6:30 am on a Saturday, you must be nuts, you say? Maybe I am. But I woke up hella early because I was going on the Epic Bike Ride! Just a quick rundown: it’s 40 miles, from Williamsburg to the Rockaways, taking the coastal route of Brooklyn.
Epic Bike Ride was organized by the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative. These are the fine folks who have been working with the DOT on the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, which is a 14-mile landscaped route, physically separated from traffic with separate paths for pedestrians and cyclists. When complete, the greenway will connect neighborhood parks and open spaces from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge. IMAGINE! Oh, the places we’ll go! Continue reading
