Sorry I was so MIA last week -- what a week! I've been so busy with work and social stuff, its been a whirlwind! I slept basically all weekend, finally watched the Social Network and hung out in the park for a bit. Nothing really that amazing, which made it totally amazing!
Buut a few weekends ago Nick's parents were in town for the 5 Boro Bike Tour and during our free time we headed over to Smorgasburg, the food fair that takes over the outdoor Brooklyn Flea location every Saturday.
In short, Smorgasburg is awesome. We hopped on the East River Ferry and were there in no time, and in minutes were eating literally EVERYTHING under the sun and the majority of it was delicious!
Seriously, we had: coffee, donuts, pretzels, pulled pork sandwiches, brisket, lobster rolls, caprese salad, grilled cheese, and banana bread and homemade marshmallow s'mores. Yup, all of that.
It was pretty cloudy which I think was actually a good thing because the lines weren't too brutal. Here are some shots...
The funniest thing about the day was that while waiting in line to board the ferry at 34th street, we realized we are going to ride over
with Mario Batali and his family! They were visiting Smorgaburg, too,
and were filming their visit! They literally hung out at Smorgasburg as long as we did and then we rode back to Manhattan together. Wild! His mom or mother-in-law (we weren't sure) was super friendly and chatted with us various times throughout the day. The folks working the Smorgasburg were totally flustered, but shouldn't have been! The food was overall pretty darn delicious. Here's a shot...how awesome is it that this is Batali's JOB? Wow.
