Bronies vs NYC's Best Candy Shops

Do you like CANDY?
Do you like FRIENDS?


Come buy (and eat) CANDY with FRIENDS!
We will start at Slodycze Wedel, the famous old-world Polish candy shop in Brooklyn ( http://www.yelp.com/biz/slodycze-wedel-brooklyn ). Then we'll travel into Manehatten, where we will visit the famous Economy Candy ( http://www.yelp.com/biz/economy-candy-market-new-york ), and we'll finish off the day with a taste of British sweeties at The London Candy Company ( http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-london-candy-company-new-york-3 ).

There are two more possible stops on our itinerary that we'll make if we can: Itsugar and Dewey's!

BE SURE TO BRING YOUR OWN METROCARD (or car, I guess? But who drives anyways...) as we will be traveling in "a herd" through the Subways! (Don't worry, we'll have special name tags!)

If you don't want to schlep out to Brooklyn, no problem: Just meet us at Economy Candy (108 Rivington St, Manhattan) at 2:30! Look for the crazy tall lady with the purple shirt and long long brown hair. I'll be wearing PURPLE SNEAKERS too-- hard to miss. Be sure to say hi to me and pick up a name badge! (I'll be using badges to make sure we don't leave anypony behind.) 

IF YOU GET LOST, TXT OR CALL TINKER AT[masked]!

Then we'll enjoy dinner together as a group before going our separate ways! And what will dinner be? SPAGHETTI!!! So go RSVP for that too - http://www.meetup.com/Bronies-NYC/events/141660182/!

(BTW, I don't know how to pronounce 'Slodycze Wedel' either, but I'm just gonna go with "SUGAR!") 

NAME BADGES ARE DONE! :)

    If I'm not scheduled to work that day, I'll go! It's a take on a foodie run in NYC, so HELLZ YEAH! It'll be worth the roundtrip train cost from Dover, NJ.

    • Debra "Bee" R.

      Still a maybe for me, Tinker! I won't know until the week before, when I get my work schedule. It also depends on the financial situation. But I do wanna go! My inner foodie is demanding it!

  • Thomas M.

    I am debating whether I should drive up, or take the train and use the subway

    September 24, 2013

    • Thomas M.

      never mind, it'll be easier on me to take the train, I just looked it up on Hopstop, it'll just be a half hour on the subway

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
