adventures in brooklyn, ch. 2: williamsburg
Hip as I am (ha ha), you'd think I would have spent lots of time in one of greater NYC's hippest neighborhoods. But the truth is, I've only driven through it a couple of times. Until last night, when Carly and I had a lovely dinner at Baci & Abbracci and then went to an excellent reading, including poetry by Joy Katz and Catherine Barnett, part of Nicole Steinberg's Earshot Reading Series at the Lucky Cat.
The train ride was only around half an hour, and I had a lovely walk down Bedford Avenue with its groovy shops, bars, and restaurants. I will be back during daylight hours to procure fromage et charcuteries at Bedford Cheese Shop, and under cover of darkness to try more of the places to eat and drink.
