Let’s talk about rooftops, specifically drinking on them. It’s the best way to hang out during the summer in New York and it’s something I don’t do enough.
I used to be a Citi Bike hater but no more! I had a friend visit this weekend (one of my law school besties) and she suggested we use Citi Bike and I am impressed with the service. Never mind that we were both wearing dresses and probably flashed all of lower Manhattan, but life is like that sometimes.
There’s a new beer garden in the city. It’s waaayyyy up (I feel blessed) on the Upper West Side. There are 20 beers and ciders on rotation (check out the neat gif below)….
Smorgasburg! All the good food in one place! I went on opening weekend (way back during Easter) and forgot about it until today. Smorgasburg is held every Saturday and Sunday on Pier 5 at Brooklyn Bridge Park from 11-6. Don’t forget to bring cash. They have ATMs but you don’t want to deal with those damn fees.
- Fried chicken deviled egg sandwich from Birds and Bubbles.
- Maple bacon on a stick from Landhaus.
- Shaved ice from People’s Pops.
P.S. There’s now a Smorgasburg at South Street Seaport and one in Queens.
Go forth and be gluttonous. It’s possible I ate a few more things than what’s pictured above.
Y’all I am about that Teva sandal life. Ugly or not, they are super comfortable for all day- weekend – city roaming. I’ve seen tourists rock them with socks but no, I am not about that socks and sandals life.
Hey there, I can’t vouch for the cupcakes but the banana pudding is bomb at Magnolia Bakery! I scraped the cup to make certain I could get every bit in my mouth… Continue reading
And so ends ice cream week. It was over in a flash, but I’m ending with the dessert master himself. Dominique Ansel, creator of the cronut and a few dozen other creative and tasty things, has opened a new bakery in the West Village. And from Friday- Sunday there’s an ice cream window open at the side of the shop from 12 P.M.-9:P.M.
This is a new one on me but apparently snow cream, or shaved ice, or whatever you call it is popular in Los Angeles and Asia. Now it’s popular with me too because I’ve been twice and I love it.
It’s ice cream week here at Between Breakfast & Lunch which means I’m talking about nothing but that good cold stuff all week long. To kick things off I’m throwing it back to a childhood treat from the days of yore. Push pops baby!
