We are taking our Terrarium Class to Williamsburg on May 4th from 3-5pm at Passenger Bar (229 Roebling St). Our lovely and talented teacher Claire will show you how to create a miniature living kingdom. Spruce up your dark and lonely apartment with plants that are actually very easy to care for. $60, includes all materials PLUS a FREE beer! Reserve your terrarium now.
The weather finally turned gorgeous just in time for our Spring Market today. On your Sunday stroll head over to 67 West St, 5th Fl – a 6,000 sq. ft. sun lit loft (with rooftop access) filled with over 70+ craft, art, makers and plenty of food vendors! Public hours today: 1-7pm.
Make sure to get crafty, get your nails did AND a portrait in our blossoming photo booth upstairs in the loft!
Our bar will proudly serve Brooklyn Brewery beer, Greenhook Ginsmith Kingsland Coladas, Kombucha Brooklyn, Adelina’s Rice Balls and Cafecito Bogotá Empanadas.
See you later…
Special thanks to our sponsors!
If your dog (ahem or you) are looking for some fun and positive socializing, then head over to McGolrick Park Dog Run this Saturday from 11:30am-12:30pm for Doggie Playgroup! All breeds and ages are welcome, but there is a size/weight limit – under 20lb. Oh and don’t bring any bitches in heat. All dogs must be spayed/neutered, up to date on shots and not aggressive.

There will be plenty of delicious sweet snacks and finds at our Spring Market this Sunday! Here are picks from a few featured vendors:
A few weeks back, Kickstarter opened its new Greenpoint office for a Creators Open House, revealing a beautiful renovation reflective of the many warehouse conversions in our neighborhood. Though factory aesthetics are a dime a dozen in North Brooklyn, this headquarters stands out, with a theater (Kickstarter has successfully funded 13,368 film and video projects to date), an art gallery (they hope to host exhibits for aspiring artists), a sprawling recreational and kitchen area with a long bar and seating booths, and a terrarium-like nature insertion between glass and wood walls. And that’s just the first floor.

When we first started these markets, there weren’t any baby vendors in site… oh how we have grown in just a few years. There will be plenty of cute baby stuff for your own little ones at our Spring Market this Sunday. If you aren’t preggers, I bet you know someone who is and we the have perfect baby shower gifts, plus we guarantee the market will be more fun than registry shopping at Babies R’ Us (shudder). See you Sunday!
Make sure to stop by these featured vendors:
This Sunday our Terrarium guru Claire is switching things up and we are hosting a DIY Herb Planting & Pot Decorating Class during our Spring Market on Sunday 4/13/14 at 1:30pm.

$60, includes all supplies, beer + snacks.
Long Island City is not as far as you think. And it’s definitely worth the trip over the Pulaski Bridge if you ‘re looking to discover a great shopping and mouthwatering eats at the LIC Flea, which METRO recently named the #1 market in New York City. Plus, it’s bigger and less overrun with tourists than a certain other market (*cough* Williamsburg Flea).
Queen’s biggest outdoor flea, the market brings together food from the best vendors and shopping for antiques, fashion, furniture and home décor, jewelry, art, collectibles and more, kicking off its second season this Saturday and Sunday, 4/5 & 4/6, from 10 am- 6 pm. Continue reading
There are few better ways to spend a Sunday afternoon in the spring than meeting your friends at a sweet bar in the neighborhood to have a few drinks. Such an act becomes even more awesome when it benefits an outstanding cause, like fighting Parkinson’s Disease. April is National Parkinson’s Awareness month, after all, so why not?
My fellow Greenpointers, I cordially invite you to meet me just south of the Greenpoint border this Sunday 4/6 at 3pm at Good Co Bar (10 Hope St) in Williamsburg to toast to spring (the sun is supposed to be out!) and help me rid the world of Parkinson’s Disease. Continue reading
