We’re away this weekend, but if we weren’t, here’s what we’d be doing:
* ABTKids — The American Ballet Theater is hosting a special Saturday event featuring highlights from its spring season, plus a special appearance by Angelina Ballerina. At an hour long, this seems the perfect way to introduce little kids to the talented dancers at Lincoln Center. M. would LOVE it. via The New York Times
* Post ballet, come back to Brooklyn and spend a few quality afternoon hours at Smorgasburg, the fab new food-fest from The Brooklyn Fleasters. How excited am I that they’re launching this weekly event? VERY. There will be 100+ food vendors there, including the Red Hook Lobster Pound, (that’s one of their divine lobster rolls pictured above), Pizza Moto, Country Boys Tacos, Porchetta, and many more, both known and new. On the menu: fresh oysters, dumplings, ice pops, doughnuts, hello-summer-lobster-rolls, pork sandwiches, fish tacos, pupusas, hamburgers, sausages, sesame noodles, salads, and a whole slew of other delish stuff. Something to please every hungry member of your fam. Plus NYC chefs, Greenmarket farmers, and many manner of food purveyors selling yummy-ness to take home. Good times all around. And…. One of my favorite tot-spots, Moomah, will be conducting weekly kids-craft activities to divert the little ones while you and your partner take turns browsing and sampling.
