A quick interruption in the Southeast Asia recaps since I’m trying to be a better blogger and catch up in a timely fashion. Almost caught up, promise!
Two weekends ago, we visited our dear friends in Brooklyn. They’ve spent the last ten years or so living in Boston and we loved having them around. We were so sad to see them move – we miss them! But, NYC is a pretty rad place to visit and we’re incredibly happy for them.
We travel a lot and we often have to leave Weber at home – the one downside about having a large dog. We were able to bring Web along for our weekend in Brooklyn and he had a blast. Brooklyn is so dog friendly. We stayed with our friends in Boerum Hill and so ventured from around there. I’ve often stayed in Greenpoint or Park Slope, so it was really cool to experience a new neighborhood.
In addition to enjoying the amazing fresh air, we ate and drank a lot. Here were my favorite spots:
Mission Dolores – hip outdoor/indoor pet friendly bar with lots of delicious beer on tap.
Greenpoint Heights – great brunch. I’d highly recommend the huevos rancheros! Plus, eating outside always wins.
Torst – because beer. And I was kind of obsessed with the interior – gorgeous wood tables and walls!
Royal Palms – the wait is long (ours was three hours), but don’t let that intimidate you. We were able to give them a phone number to call and then we had to show up and wait for the last hour in the bar. Shuffle board is so fun. It might even be the new bowling?
The General Greene – seriously the cutest space, and brunch was delicious.
