‘Tis the season… for holiday markets to popup all over the city. People line the streets hoping to score local handmade goodies and artisanal wares. Sure these markets are great places to hit with your Xmas checklist, but now, for the fist time ever, Press Vintage brings the flea to you. Introducing the First Annual #EATANDFLEA Brunch Bazaar, a holiday pop-up taking place at Tutu’s and combining all of your favorite weekend activities in one. Eat. Drink. Shop. Be Merry.
Frustrated with the commotion of other holiday fairs, Emma Bracy and Ben Martel, founders of Press Vintage, partnered with Tutu’s to create the first ever #EATANDFLEA Brunch Bazaar: brunch in the front, bazaar-ing in the back, with some special added touches (like sexy live jazz and free Perrier) that will take you out of holiday hell while you get your necessary shopping on.
This one-of-a-kind holiday shopping experience highlights local vendors with fly gifts for all. Between Press Vintage‘s men’s–women’s–unisex offerings and Various Love Affairs‘ handmade designer digs you’ll have your clothing needs covered. Friends think they fancy, huh? Check out the jewelry selection, including Alkhemi9‘s metal masterpieces and the special sneak-peak of jewelry line KRI.MARINO (formerly of Downtown Diaries fame).
#EATANDFLEA taking place at Tutu’s, 25 Bogart Street, noon to 6pm on Saturdays (12/14) and (12/21).
They were further stunned when the couple asked if they could push the crib up to one of their sidewalk cafe tables and have their child hang out in it while they ate brunch.
“That certainly was a first,” said Rosarita’s daytime manager Susie Kenny. “We were laughing all day. It was a highlight.”
Kenny added that she wasn’t sure if the crib “passed fire code,” but didn’t want to turn the couple away after they had gone to the trouble of pushing it down street.
Wait so do they just stroll around Williamsburg with this thing in tow? I can’t wait to see them push the crib up to the stage during a show at Glasslands some night.

Since the summer of 2011 Greenpoint restaurant Calyer held down the corner of Franklin St. and Cayler St. However, owner Blair Papagni (who also owns Anella) just made a big change to the space. From Eater:
Restaurateur Blair Papagni decided to turn her Greenpoint New American restaurant Calyer into a second location of her American comfort food restaurant Jimmy’s Diner. An employee at the restaurant tells Eater that the switch happened on Monday. The menu is similar to the one served at the original Williamsburg location.
The popular weekend brunch original Jimmy’s Diner is located at 577 Union Ave.
I’m all for a good brunch joke, but the current originality of Brooklyn/hipster/brunch humor is beating a dead horse while wearing an American Apparel onesie. Today’s example is a song by Cooking Channel’s ‘Chef-Comedienne’ Nadia G. She takes an awful melody and fills in the blanks Mad Libs style with “Ray-Bans”, ‘L-Train”, “Instagram”, “Irony”, “Loft” and for some reason “Crumpets.” Thanks or no thanks to Max Silvestri for sharing the link to this.
