Today Alex and I headed to Red Hook to walk around and go to Fairway. Our lofty plans of checking out the stores on Van Brunt, a trip to Ikea AND Fairway were marred by the fact that the stores were closed and we didn't have a car.
It ended up being fine as there was an art fair going on by the water, showcasing different local artists. We had a snack at Baked and then dinner at Hope & Anchor.
Despite the gray day, it was a wonderful date. We saw friends picnicking in community gardens, a girl get her stolen bike back and a guy shove his kayak into his apartment via the ground floor window. We walked by the old trolleys and tried to peer inside, then I bought a new houseplant (big purple clovers!) at Chelsea Garden Center. Awesome!
