on my weekend in pictures.

we had another lovely weekend, albeit hot one like the rest of the east coast. we went back to red hook (which we also checked out last fall) and i'll have more to say about it tomorrow - but as predicted, i fell in love with it all over again. we went to check out a new place that had opened - brooklyn crab. it's on the water and has cornhole and (soon to come) mini-golf. we played a few rounds of cornhole, drank a couple of margaritas, and enjoyed the view and the breeze when we sat down for lunch. after that we took a long walk back to the subway, checking out other brooklyn neighborhoods, stopping to rest in parks, and ending with a refreshing drink before heading back into manhattan. saturday night was spent in the company of a good friend - drinking wine, eating pasta, and enjoying some summer fruit. we laid low on sunday after all that excitement and now are just waiting for the fourth of july, when we head home to virginia. hope you enjoyed your weekend - and stayed cool!

  1. That place sounds pretty sweet- I love bars with games/entertainment! We're heading south for the 4th too-- leaving that night for a week on the beaches of North Carolina!

  5. Gosh you're making me love Brooklyn more and more and I haven't even been there! What a perfect relaxing weekend. Cornhole and margs by the water?? Doesn't get any better. Except for the part where you finished it off with wine and pasta. That truly makes this weekend epic! Glad you enjoyed it!

  11. Corn hole? Please explain?? I'm now wishing we spent more time in Brooklyn when I visited last year.

    1. so corn hole is a game where you have a wooden board on the ground, with one half tilted upward and that half has a hole in it. you throw bean bags at the board from about 10 to 20 feet away hoping to get it in the hole or to land on the board (the former gets you three points, the latter gets you one point). it's a game that i believe was started in the southern US, like wayyyyyyyyyy back in the day, but many people play it, usually at BBQs, football game tailgates, etc. definitely hit up brooklyn next time you come to nyc - it's a great place!

  13. Isn't Red Hook the best? I always swear I am going to live there but then remember it's so impossible to get anywhere else from there! Nice to visit at least :) I've been meaning to try the Brooklyn Crab! I've heard some questionable reviews but I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'll have to check it out soon!
