Weekend Rewind April 8-10

2011 April 11

This past weekend was low-key and mostly free of plans–it was a nice break before the craziness of late Spring sets in. We laid low most of Saturday, finishing up taxes and planning for our  upcoming trip to Napa (!!) this week (we leave Wednesday for five days). On a whim, we headed to Williamsburg late Saturday night for an indie dance party that turned out to be lots of fun. Sunday morning we had our first trip the neighborhood farmer’s market of the season, then went up to Greenpoint for the day. Greenpoint is just north of Williamsburg, and we always have a great time there. Our first stop was coffee and lunch at the Milk and Roses cafe and then a birthday party at the Pencil Factory.  After a few drinks there, we relocated to Diamond Bar, a Brooklyn favorite, where you can play shuffleboard or sit in the backyard. Always a good time (also, turns out I am pretty good at shuffleboard!). We closed out our Greenpoint day with Polish food at Lomzynianka, a tiny, cheap, and delicious BYOB at the intersection of Manhattan and Bedford Aves.  My Monday has been pretty brutal so far (train trouble, leaked salad dressing on a favorite sweater, and stress at work), so I’m already missing the weekend and REALLY looking forward to vacation!

What did you do this weekend?

Crazy lights at the dance party

Antique books line the walls at Milk and Roses

A latte and some reading

A very literary scene for an outfit pic–rocking my J. Crew “leggy denim”, an Anthropologie top, and my vintage blazer from the Brooklyn Flea.

One of the draws of Diamond Bar–a giant floating Michael Landon head

Kielbasa and mashed potatoes. Yum.

    I just have to say that I LOVE that you are good at shuffleboard. LOVE. :)

    Also, this sounds like a fabulous weekend. Love that “literary scene.” Should be your new pic. :)
