weekend in review

If every weekend could be as gorgeous as this one, Fall might slowly overtake Summer as my favorite season. It was warm and sunny with the slightest hint of crispness. If only Winter weren't right around the corner...I'm trying to enjoy the lovely weather while I can!

Kurt is in the process of changing jobs, so we had some going away drinks with his current coworkers on Friday night in Brooklyn. On Saturday, we attended an Oktoberfest backyard cookout a little outside the city (currently in its 26th year!) before coming back to the city to watch Ohio State take on Wisconsin (the Buckeyes won!). On Sunday, I took part in the City Modern Home Tours and volunteered as a docent at an awesome house in Brooklyn. It's a long day on your feet but so fun to see in some gorgeous homes and talk to lots of random people about design. After my volunteer stint, Kurt and I met up with a friend who is moving away from the city this week :( We shared a pitcher of beer at Connie O's and yummy donuts (red velvet crumble, chocolate sprinkles, lemon filled) from Peter Pan* before getting authentic Polish food in Greenpoint. New jobs and cities are best prepared for with lots of good food and drink, obvs. 

*(I've been less than on top of the NYC Donut Tour, but it is not forgotten. I'm probably better off sprinkling it in when I can. See what I did there?!) Peter Pan had a large selection of really classic flavors and they were super cheap. Very tasty but a little messy. Definitely grab some napkins! Thanks to Daina for the suggestion!

  1. Yay! So excited to made it to Peter Pan! We had a rental car over the weekend, so Brian drove to Greenpoint early Sunday morning to pick up some donuts. Unfortunately, they didn't have much of a selection out yet when he got there... so we loaded up on their amazing Linzer tarts and coffee cake instead! If you hear about any new donut places in the city, please share them with me. I would love to explore some new bakeries!

    Also, that roof? Wow!

  2. I agree - such yummy donuts at Peter Pan!
    Let me know if you'd like some company/a tasting partner on any of your donut excursions! I've been wanting to go on a donut tour of the city for a while ... There seem to be so many donut shops around! Not sure if you heard that Crumbs has come out with their own version of a cronut (called a "crumbnut!"). Also, have you been to Dough in Brooklyn (they have a donut stand @ the Flea)?

  3. Wasn't the weather perfect this weekend? Love your photos and now I want doughnuts.

  4. the sour cream doughnut from peter pan is one of my all time favorite eats...EVER.

  5. Very sad to miss this new doughnut adventure!!!
