PopBars in the Village & Etsy Crafts in Chelsea

When life gets crazy, I can always count on my friends to make sure I'm in the loop of what's going on in the city.


Miss Annie bo Bannie brought this Urban Daddy post to my attention:

Gelato on a Stick
"There might be an excess of licking in the West Village this summer. The culprit: a new form of popsicle-ized gelato called the PopBar, sold at a new shop dedicated to popsicles. Eat them plain or dipped in nuts, biscotti or brownies. Even if you don't eat them at all, be prepared to buy them for friends in sundresses."
 Pop Bar, 5 Carmine St (at Sixth Ave), 212-255-4874

I can't think of any problem that gelato on a stick won't solve!

Cat, aka Pretty Kitty (wink), sent met a Going NYC link this morning for an Etsy craft fair in Chelsea this Saturday.

"Spring and summer are synonymous with street fairs in Manhattan, but anyone who stops by Crafts in Chelsea on May 8 is in for a different sort of affair: Crafts in Chelsea is made up of a select group of artisans with shops on Etsy.com, an online marketplace for handmade goods. The more than 100 participating vendors are all independent designers who make the wares they sell in the New York metro area.
Shoppers will be able to browse unique clothing, beautiful accessories and jewelry, bath and beauty products, stationery, and housewares, all of it made in and around New York City. Inside P.S. 11 the PTA will host a gently-used toy- and book- sale, as well as a bake sale."


street fair + Etsy + my neighborhood = my personal heaven.



TGIF, everyone.

until next time,
