Take Me To: Brooklyn, NY

Remember that time I posted all about Charleston, SC in an attempt to convince my husband to take me? Well, it worked and we were planning on going and then it just didn't fit in our budget as the time got closer. So we decided to take off of work for a few days and head to our family's beach house in Cape May, NJ instead. WELL that seems to also be falling through the cracks when we found out the weather report for the weekend reads chilly and rainy. So alas, I am left to choose another adventure.
I convinced him to take me to NYC on Saturday. He's never been to Chelsea Market (oh my gosh have you ever seen that place?! It's the bomb.) and given the foodie that he is, I think he would just love it!

While my mind has been in Big Apple- mode, I realized another trip I would REALLY like to take is one right across the bridge, to Brooklyn! Actually, this is more focused on the North Williamsburg region on down. So I have compiled a list of a few things I would love to check out and you should too if you so desire!!

I think if you are going to stay in Brooklyn, you should choose a bed and breakfast. This one looks so perfectly quaint and simple and relaxing! Each room is so unique! Or if you are more of the hotel type and money ain't no thang, stay at the Whythe Hotel, an old factory-turned-luxury-hotel on the waterfront in Williamsburg. Nu Hotel is also just about one of the coolest places I have ever seen.

Did you know there is more than one Brooklyn store front with a secret identity? The Brooklyn Superhero Supply is probably my favorite... a front for a tutoring program plus you can buy a cape. Don't tell my husband. Also among these are some speakeasies if you need to drink incognito.

Trying to grab a bite? Check out Pies 'n' Thighs. Talk about your comfort food. Or for something a little more reserved, go to brunch at Egg. Head to Mast Brothers Chocolate for dessert and then to wash it all down, the Brooklyn Brewery

Check out the Brooklyn Flea if you're in need of some antiques and vintage goods and if you're still hungry, Smorgasburg is basically a flea market of food, minus the flea.

End the day with a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge  or a stroll through Prospect Park.

If you live in Brooklyn or have spent time there before and have more suggestions to offer, please let me know! I would love more input and look forward to visiting soon:)
