Haunted Cellar Halloween Party

We had a big Halloween bash and fixed up our cellar with black lights and spooky noises and slimy konnyaku hanging from the ceiling and other various spooky details. Two b & b guests, Rachel from New York and Bertrand from France visited the haunted cellar and we had a great time sharing with them.

Summer in the City

It's been hot! The really bad heat wave is over for the moment and it's so nice to have a little break. We currently have guests from Montreal, who have been exploring flea markets and enjoying the Outpost Lounge
They also mentioned planning to see Sonic Youth in Prospect Park this weekend!
We tried a really great Italian Restaurant not far from here called Saraghina. Their pizza and atmosphere were amazing! 435 Halsey at Lewis, check it out. Our guest from Australia told me about it months ago so we finally tried it. Thanks, Jan!
We went to a summer camp upstate which we highly recommend; We learned primitive skills and had a lot of fun.
Ahh, summer in the city.

Smokey's big adventure

Early this morning I could hear a cat meowing outside our window. It sounded kind of familiar but I figured it was a stray (of which there are several) but finally got up to see and it was our large gray cat, Smokey, who is quite friendly with our guests. Somehow she got outside and the poor thing was terrified. She was very relieved to be back inside and has been purring all day.

Local shops make the NY "Times"

I heard about this great article and slide show from the NY Times last week.

They featured several of our favorite shops all right around us- the cafe Bushbaby, Abu's Bakery, Israel's Record Shop, Heavenly Crumbs, Collecther boutique, Al's Mens Shop and Star Perfumes.

We can set you up right here in the neighborhood!
