Normally an upper west side flea market on weekends–this weekend was a sweets bazaar. A nice alternative if you were unable to get tickets to the Dessertgoals first annual fest that was also happening today.
Our normally comprehensive cataloging of dog costumes was cut short this year due to the cold and rainy weather but here are some of our favorites!
Goodnight sweet Bichon (time to R-U-N)
Croton-on-Harmon hosts a jack-o-lantern extravaganza every October! It’s simply out of this world. Thousands of pumpkins (both real & foam craft sort) are carved & stacked into enormous sculptures. Located an hours train ride from nyc, it’s an easy day trip for the family.
There were so many great dogs costumes; here’s a few of my favorites:
After hearing many things (both good/cheap & bad/crowded) about the Queens Night Market located at the New York Hall of Science, we finally made it on a rainy Saturday night.
Normally the night market operates in summer (late april-august) but this year it’s open for Saturdays in october starting oct 8. In the past, especially for the opening last apr 23rd, the crowds had been immense & made the night market hard to navigate, however last night due to the drizzling rains it was perfectly uncrowded. There were still a smattering of rain hardy foodies enjoying the cheap eats (most things priced $3,4,5 or $6) & playing in the inflatable knockerballs.
Who says you can’t have fun in the rain?
We checked out the first Kickstarter Fest in Fort Greene Park in brooklyn! It was lively but not crowded due to the light drizzling rain.
Highlights include exploding kittens card game with huge giant sized cards, virtual reality headsets (though the wait to use these was really rather too long), food trucks, giant beer pong games, light & art installations, boneyard pets…..
Giant beer pong and Some awesome light art installations! Like lite brite 3d!
We had an excellent dinner with friends in the Chelsea neighborhood in NYC at the Red Cat.
Started with green bean tempera with mustard dipping sauce 😍
Salmon with summer succotash of corn
Our friends got the chocolate cherry ice cream sandwich & the cinnamon nutmeg churros 😍😍😍
