Wednesday Link Up // Vol. 15 - NYCC & KING

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Happy Belated Wednesday Link Up!

Life's been a little hectic (to say the least), so unfortunately I haven't had the chance to round up my favorite links and make them pretty for you guys, but I can share some bit of great news! 

Urban Inspirations NYC is covering NYCC 2014! 

Unfortunately for a lot of us in geeksville, earlier today New York Comic Con 3-Day tickets 
sold out within the first TWO HOURS of their release (*sigh*). 

The Bad News: Unless I get press tickets, I won't be able to cover a whole weekend's worth of geeky goodness. 
The Good News:  I was fortunate enough to grab Saturday tickets before they sold out! (Yes, they're sold out!) 

The other piece of great news? 

Last week KING finally released a new single, "Mister Chameleon." This comes after their announcement last month of the album streaming party they're holding in LA tomorrow! (Got such Cali envy right now...) 

Hopefully that means a full stream of the album will be up somewhere on the site soon (or NPR?). Either way, all I want is a damn release date for the LP! Come on ladies, you're killing us over here! 

If you haven't already, check out the single and let me know what you think!

Will be happy to be back to posting regularly after this weekend! 
Till then, have a great week & weekend! 


Wednesday Link Up // Vol. 14 - Curtis Harding & Doughnuts in NYC

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Despite the sinus congestion brought on by...quien sabe que, it's a happy hump day!

Since I'm a little under the weather, let's kick things off with something sweet: 

Unfortunately last Friday I was unable to participate in the National Doughnut Day festivities, but that didn't stop me from celebrating on Saturday!

(Doughnuts from DOUGH in BedStuy. Brooklyn, NY)
I was first introduced to DOUGH a few months ago and was instantly hooked. I hadn't gone since because it's a bit of trek from my place, a good 20 minute walk, so it was hard convincing anyone to come with and as any sweet addict knows, you never wanna grab a box of doughtnuts alone! My boyfriend was finally up for the challenge this weekend and we got this deadly quartet of dulce de leche, passion fruit, hibiscus &  plain ol' glazed (upper left going clockwise).

Wednesday Link Up // Vol 13

Wednesday, June 4, 2014

It's Wednesday, time to do that link-up thing again!

Where Brooklyn at? 

This week I want to highlight two local goodies - the Thunderbolt and Shake Shack's birthday!

Daniel Boulud's "The Piggy Shack" (photo: Evan Sung)
Normally I'm not a Shake Shack burger fan ( a SS malt vanilla shake tho? SO GOOD!), but these one-day-special burgers might be the exception! Next week Brooklyn's Shake Shack location celebrates it's 10th birthday (week!) with a special hamburger every day (there's even one whipped up by David Chang from Momofuku Milk Bar!~ ) The "crabby patties" will be $8.50, but if they look anything like the picture above, I got ten on it! 

Check out the burger schedule & birthday week celebration plans here.

MUSIC/EVENT: Sweetlife Music & Food Festival 2014

Sunday, June 1, 2014


Three weeks ago I was part of this electric crowd - equal parts food and music lovers!

There are bodies as far as the eye can see, and this isn't even HALF of the attendees OR the main stage crowd. Usually people attend these festivals more for the headliners, but surprisingly this year I was all about the Treehouse Stage performances by: St. Lucia, Capitial Cities & Chromeo!
