I recently ventured to Brooklyn with my husband and some of our close friends. We originally booked the date after we bought tickets for a Beirut concert, but taking the advice of friends, we decided to spend the earlier part of the day exploring some of the local fare in and around the area. We started the morning with double egg sandwiches from The Notch, a local family owned convince store and food joint. After a hardy breakfast and some good dinner coffee we piled into the car and headed towards the city. Our next stop was Arther Avenue, a quaint neighborhood boasting to be the best kept secret in the Bronx. Known to locals as the "real little Italy", the area has a variety of fresh markets, bakeries, pasta & pastry shops. We sampled our fair of cookies and fresh seafood before continuing on our way. Once in Williamsburg we toured the Brooklyn Brewery, ate some amazing BBQ at Fette Sau (an old mechanic's garage turned smoke house), grabbed some coffee and wandered around the river front before heading to show. Highlights from our day are below, enjoy!
