Spring Weekend Fun: 3/26-3/27

Even though it's still chilly out, there's a little sun to remind us that it will get warmer soon! 

We've also celebrated so many foods recently: Pancakes, Macaroons, PI(e), Hamburgers, Waffles (TODAY 3/25 - still time to get one!  Too bad we aren't in the South - we could have had a party at Waffle House!).  I can't wait for what's next...Grilled Cheese month should be soon!

Here are a few interesting things to check out this weekend and onward, lots in Brooklyn (it is a great place: )!

Sat 3/26

  • 7-10PM: THE INFLATABLE SCUPLTURE STUDENT SHOW - See their creations in progress over the past few months come to life, FREE [3rd Ward - 195 Morgan Ave; website]
All Weekend:
  • 10AM-6PM: Martha Stewart's POP-UP PIE SHOP- Stop by Little Owl to buy one of Martha Stewart's pies from her new book, New Pies & Tarts (not as exciting because it's not free like I thought, but still yummy I'm sure!  Only $3) [93 Greenwich; website]
