weekend in brooklyn.

Last weekend, we took Friday off of work and made the 7-hour drive to spend the weekend in Brooklyn. I had found a gorgeous place on Airbnb very close to the Brooklyn Academy of Music, where we were going to see Neutral Milk Hotel play on Saturday night. Our host was such a delight and, after we checked in and rested a little to recover from the drive, we set off in search of food (sweet chili-glazed meatloaf sandwich and truffle mac and cheese!) and then took the subway over to Chelsea to check out Sleep No More, a modern rendition of Macbeth. I won’t spoil it for any of you who haven’t seen or heard of it – but definitely worth checking out, such a unique experience!

comfy.

i loved this sunlight.

We woke up to sunlight pouring into our window on Saturday morning, lazily sipped on a pot of coffee and made plans for our day. We decided to grab breakfast at a hip little place called Smooch then wandered through a farmer’s market with the locals before meeting up with an old friend of mine to meet her new little one. We then decided to check out Brooklyn’s most famous neighborhood – the hipster mecca, Williamsburg.

Wild Ginger Pan-Asian Vegan Cafe - yum!

We walked around to check out all of the little shops and ate a delicious lunch at a pan-asian vegan cafe – typical Brooklyn, hm? We then went back to the room to relax with a nap before walking over to the BAM to see the show, which was a phenomenal experience. The energy of the crowd was like nothing I had ever felt before. The night ended as all good nights do – with some delicious late-night snacking – and i’m pretty sure we passed out immediately upon arriving back at the room.

my favorite part.

All in all, our weekend getaway went by so quickly but we truly managed to fit a whole lot in. I will say this, though – Brooklyn is definitely one of those places that I will think about until we get to go back again!
