Summer Means Never Having to Wear a Jacket...
Unless you're riding the subway.
Hi, Guys! Adrienne here, just CHILLING out today, as it's a nice, cool 69 degrees in NYC today! And, while I do believe it's a little too cool for summer, the break from the heat of just a couple of days ago is MORE than welcome from where I stand, which is in Harlem, at the moment. OK, full disclosure, I'm sitting. Because I'm writing. And I ain't no fancy standing-desk kind of person.
ANYWAY, as we sit and bask in the cool not-really-there-sunshine of today and tomorrow, I just wanted to remind you all that while it may feel like fall, we still have 59 days of summer left! YES, that's about 2 months left of summer! And that's only the calendar summer, which we're clearly not abiding by anymore! Likely, thanks to climate change, we'll feel summery into October!!
What does that mean for you and for me and every last foodie? It means that 1: Summer Restaurant Week (which is really 25 days long) just started and so if you're in NYC, you can take advantage of some very fine dining for a pretty affordable price. 2: It means that there are still MANY days left for you to join me on one of my Brooklyn-loving summer food tours!
Taste your way through the old Italian hood of Carroll Gardens with me! I'm offering this up through the month of September--just because I care! Highlights of the tour include some real old-school Italian eateries, a couple of the newer hipster joints, a mob story or two, a sandwich shop that's consistently rated #1 by just about every foodie rag out there, and many personal connections that make this tour that much more special to me.
Of course, if you're more of a walk and eat kinda person, you should check out my ever-evolving DUMBO Street Eats Tour, which will run as long as the vendors are out there--possibly through October. Treat yourself to the ultimate Summer Friday, by taking in the icon scenes of New York City that have stories just as varied as the art and people who reside there. Your tongue will get to travel the world, all while your body takes in the views along the beautiful Brooklyn waterfront that used to be the hub of industrial activity in this port city.
