Well, here it is - my first blog entry!!
Just wanted to put a shout out for the Brooklyn Night Bazaar. I'd read about it and put it on my Brooklyn "to do" list. We decided to walk to the market despite the chilly weather (-7C). We arrived a little early so stood in line outside until the doors opened - brrrr! It's an over 21's venue and to our surprise we were required to show our ID! The first impression once in the warehouse was very warm and inviting. Lots of stalls and paper lanterns in the front of the market - food, seating (picnic table style with benches) and a band stand at the back. There is also an outdoor beer garden that is actually covered and heated. I was surprised to see that there is a games area within the market where you can play air hockey, mini golf, pacman and other games. Seeing as we'd walked and were just a tad frozen, our priority was to get mulled wine and then stroll about the stalls. The mulled wine, wasn't the best, but it hit the spot and warmed us up. Nice to see some eclectic treasures and wares that were unique - nothing made in China here.... There was even a stall selling Biltong! It was frightfully expensive and didn't look that good but attracted lots of patrons and interest. The food stalls were interesting - Arancini, Pulled Pork and Pulled Chicken, Taco's, Thai food, cakes and more. Don't know who the band was whilst we were there, but it was very cool sitting drinking our mulled wine, eating our Pulled Chicken and listening to the band whilst getting in a huge amount of people watching Love this concept! Oh and it's free to get in....
