What’s Cooking in the Garden Spot

Today I realized that there are a number of nifty things going on in my ‘nabe that I have failed to mention. Here they are.



Starting this weekend Cafecito will be selling fruit ices, juices, punch and mint limeade every Saturday and Sunday.

Mint Limeade

I tried their limeade today and it was fantastic! Tart, with just a hint of sweetness. Give it a shot, I doubt you’ll regret it. I have also heard their hot chocolate is wonderful, though this may not be the season for it.

Casa Mon Amour

Casa Mon Amour Provence Menu

Few people seem to know that Casa Mon Amour hosts an evening of French cuisine each month. This month’s offering is French Provincial, my personal favorite. Those of you who are interested can R.S.V.P. via the above phone number. Caveat: best to do so sooner rather than later, they get booked pretty fast.

Pets on the Run & City Dog Lounge

Pets on the Run

It looks like north Greenpoint is going to get its first pet supply soon. I have no other details save that this store will be located at 989 Manhattan Avenue (between Huron and India Street).

That said, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the City Dog Lounge (located in Long Island City) does deliver to Greenpoint. My husband and I have purchased our cat food (and of course, cat litter) from here for some time. The proprietress, Hanna, came come off as being brusque but don’t let that put you off; she’s actually a very nice person. More importantly, she is painstakingly punctual when it comes to making deliveries. All you need to do is go there, set up an account and you’re good to go.

They will be having a champagne party tomorrow from 12:00 p.m. through 5:00 p.m. Per their invitation:

Hello Alter friends & family!

Come down to Alter this Sunday, June 10th from 12-5 PM for some free champagne, lots of great new mechandise, and recently marked down Spring attire.

Yeah, I disagree with their opinion of TONY‘s article(s), but they’re amazingly talented and very nice chaps nonetheless.
