(sponsored)This Saturday, it’s that rarest of things: a really good reason to be in Manhattan on a weekend. Bedford + Bowery – New York magazine’s site covering North Brooklyn and Downtown Manhattan – is bringing together the best of both worlds for an outdoor festival of food, shopping and music. Come for the free beer (while it lasts!) from Brooklyn Brewery; stay for the beats by members of LCD Soundsystem; and sip still more exotic brews from Greenpoint’s own Torst, whose newly Michelin-starred chef Daniel Burns will be serving up duck sandwiches. You’ll also get to try Vietnamese grub from Ridgewood’s Bunker, Malaysian street food from Williamsburg’s Pasar Malam, Japanese rice burgers(!) from East Village’s Yonekichi, Icelandic stews from the LES’s Skal, Korean-American fried bird from the Seoul Chicken, southern grub from Empire Biscuit and lots more.
Rad vendors like Etsy NY will be selling vintage clothing, home wares, jewelry, books, and zines. For Halloween, Bushwick’s Catland has all your occult items and Greenpoint’s “Wizard of Odd,” Billy Leroy, will be staging a one-day-only comeback of his famous Houston Street antiques and oddities tent. There’ll be used records – and brand new vinyl from Greenpoint label Captured Tracks. And speaking of music! Your DJs for the day will be none other than DFA Records artists Museum of Love (featuring Pat Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem) and Nancy Whang (LCD, The Juan Maclean). It’s all FREE and happening this Saturday from 11am to 6pm at the Hester Street Fair, at Hester and Essex Streets on the LES. Find more info here and follow @bedbow for updates!
Hunting for something special at flea markets is always fun, but add in a cornhole tournament and you really have nothing better to do this Saturday. But wait, add in the chance to be on national television for the taping of the hit tv show Flea Market Flip and you should be running to catch the G to Long Island City.
The cornhole tournament will be happening all day at LIC Flea, so come and test your tossing skills. The winner will walk away with their very own cornhole set, $100 to spend at the flea, FREE beer from LIC based Rockaway Brewery and other great prizes. Sign up for your spot in the tournament here.

If you’re a mid-century modern freak, then do not miss this pop-up by Adaptations NY at the former Dalaga Space (150 Franklin St). Normally housed on the 4th floor of 67 West St, the open house, which will run throughout 7/13, will feature a retail space of carefully curated vintage furniture and home decor – plus a designed living space that emulates the owner Kyla’s home so you can see her interior design chops.
Put on your friendship bracelets and grab your BFFs – our FIRST EVER Summer Market is right around the corner!

Picnic season is here! And, just in the nick of time, brand new store Greenpoint Cheese + Meat (192 Driggs Ave) has flung open its doors to provide us with a dazzling array of treats perfect for enjoying in the park on a lazy summer afternoon.
The store is run by friends and business partners Ursula O’Hara and Jessica Mark and, as the name suggests, they’re focusing mainly on specialist cheeses and cured meats (along with some exceptionally lovely Italian olives). Continue reading →

If you’re looking to empty your wallet on all things luxurious and modern, Otte just unveiled a pop-up shop on 193 Bedford Ave. The store features exclusively priced merchandise for the resort and pre-spring seasons from an array of designers at 20-50% off, including the in-house Otte NY label. In addition to awesome sales, Otte Pop also sells terrariums for a unique and beautiful addition. The pop-up shop will run through August.
We’ve missed Dusty Rose Vintage ever since they closed down their warehouse (they are still in the process of waiting for a new space), but lucky for us, the vintage wholesalers are back in action this weekend with a curated brunch/shopping day party in collaboration with Pretty In Thrift. Very appropriately, their rallying cry is “Thank F*ck it’s Finally Spring.” Pro Stylist, Stephanie Mohebban, will be picking out some choice warm-weather clothes for the occasion and we’re told there will be drinks.
Pretty in Dusty Rose is happening on Sunday 4/27 from 12-5pm @ Brooklyn Safehouse (120 Franklin St). RSVP here!

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.
The folks at Brooklyn Makers will be presenting two collaborations at our Spring Market this Sunday, 4/13. Two minds think better than one, right? They’ve teamed up with design studio mimoYmima to release the first in a series of urban-themed t-shirts. The Brooklyn Water Tower tee is available in kids ($26) and adults ($29) sizes.
