Weekend Rewind: Sisterly Love April 1-3

2011 April 4

The ugly weather that rounded out the work week let up a bit just in time for the weekend, and my sister’s visit. She and Dennis, her partner in crime, arrived on Saturday afternoon, and we went straight to the Brooklyn Flea after dropping off bags at my apartment. It’s one of my favorite things to do in Brooklyn, and as luck would have it, was the first outdoor weekend of the season. I restrained myself from buying anything beyond edible treats, but Melissa got a vintage Coach purse, and Dennis got some retro photos.

After the Flea, we strolled around the neighborhood and then had dinner at Frankie’s. So delicious, and we got a table right away! We followed up a leisurely dinner with cocktails at the Brooklyn Social Club, then headed home for some birthday cake and bed.

Sunday morning we took our guests to Clover Club (where else?) so they could experience the bacon tasting firsthand. Duck bacon, pepper bacon, and maple-glazed bacon all on one plate–it’s a crowd-pleaser. Since it was a sunny day, we then took the train out to Prospect Park to walk around and explore, and then finished up the afternoon with a stop at Brooklyn Farmacy.

It was a great weekend, and restored my hope that spring may actually finally be here. What did YOU do this weekend?

I got the arugula salad and linguine with fava beans. Mmm.

Crocuses= Spring!

    Sad I missed the milkshakes… If I had known, I would have gotten one at Applebee’s.

    Thanks again for a really fun weekend. I’m not sure which was my favorite…yummy dinner, delicious martini, or duck bacon!

    Damn, I already wish I was back in New York to do more things like this…
