Don’t get too comfortable with the current weather. If you’re on the East Coast, you know we’re about to go from this:
Soon, the thought of warm weather will be, as Nelly put it best, “Just A Dream.” Have you done everything you’d planned to accomplish this summer? Even two things? Have you even eaten a hot dog? YOU HAVEN’T?!?
There’s still a lot going on before summer ends and the FOMO is real. September will be here in three days. I repeat, THREE DAYS. We’re making things easy for you with a list of crucial activities to get done before the season ends. Don’t let summer pass you by without checking at least three of these things off your list.
Get an amazing sandwich
The production team stays true to cheeseburgers and Philly cheesesteaks from Cafe Duke.
All of us though have a sweet spot for the great Italian bakery Parisi. Their “Dennis” sandwich makes us want to do unspeakable things. I mean, just look at it.
And now my personal favorite, the chicken parm sandwich from Parm NYC. This is the best of its kind.
Somehow get your hands on the infamous Cronut
At least once a day, every single day this summer, I have googled pictures of Cronuts. Finally, (with the help of Gene H. from TaskRabbit) I was able to acquire not one, but TWO Cronuts. Naturally, I brought them into the office and made my coworkers try them. We came to the executive decision that Cronuts are amazing. They’re dense, sweet, gooey, and worth every penny.
Eat everything in sight at Smorgasburg
Smorgasburg takes place in two locations every weekend: Saturdays at East River State Park (Kent Ave. and N. 7 St.) on the Williamsburg waterfront, and Sundays on the Dumbo waterfront, at the historic Tobacco Warehouse in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The locations alone are good enough reasons to go check out this food paradise.
What makes Smorgasburg different than other food markets? Mini cheesecakes, lobster rolls (pictured above), gourmet hot dogs, delicious doughnuts, and spicy Mexican corn, just to name a few. If you’re a foodie and you don’t make it to Smorgasburg this summer, you may live your life in regret. If you’re not a foodie, well, you’ll still probably have the same fate.
