Brooklyn Foodies Field Trip

  • Jun 28, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

We will spend the day in Brooklyn exploring many of the amazing foodie opportunities that exist in this hippest of all cities. We'll start at the Grand Plaza Framers Market. Along the way we will hit specailty markets, have lunch at the best sandwich shop anywhere, visit one of the best bakeries for bread, hit a brewery for a mid-afternoon beer and snack, explore a cheese shop that will blow your mind, sample the origional eggcream, and then maybe have dinner. There will be opportunity to wak, and to load up your car with goodies to take home. This is an all day event starting as soon as we can get to the farmers market in the morning. Carpooling is encouraged and folks who want to bike from spot to spot can easily do that. Attendees will be given the route with locations and timing the day of the event at the Farmers Market.

    June 27, 2014

  • deb

    Isnt Park Road somewhere near the Bushnell. I was gonna use my GPS but don't want to get lost..Is there a cell # just in case.?? In any case I will be there early enough....

    Please remember no wearing scented lotions or perfumes Saturday, we have drivers who are allergic! Thanks

  • caryl

    Folks, I am happy to answer your questions, but please consider reading the emails I've already sent you, which so far already contain the answers to all your questions.
    The 1477 Park STREET address is my former office building. If you enter Park Rd into your GPS you will likely get lost.
    Linda and I will be at the meeting place by 7:30 AM.

    I have an easy pass for tolls that might come in handy....

    June 27, 2014

    • Susanne

      Using your Easy Pass gets you a discounted rate on tolls, as well. How will we keep track so you can be reimbursed? I usually don't know how much the discounted toll is until I get my statement. Perhaps the toll person would know? But that would defeat the point of having the Easy Pass to zip through the tolls!

      Susanne, let's see how it plays out. I don't remember how many we go through for Brooklyn, its less than for Manhattan.

    This sounds like a blast, but there's no way I'd drive into NYC! I have a whole day planned anyways. I'm going to keep my eyes open though. In Watertown they put on bus trips to NY sometimes. I'll find out about them & let you all know if you're interested.

    June 26, 2014

    • caryl

      Rhonda we are car pooling. Given the nature of our food tour of Brooklyn we really need cars for one or two stretches and for getting our goodies home.

      June 27, 2014

  • Susanne

    My +1 will not be joining us. I'm interested in being a passenger and will share expenses accordingly. I have a small cooler on wheels that I will bring with ice packs. Looking forward to a great day!

Please in the parking lot at 1477 park st Hartford ( cross street Bartholomew ) by 8:00 AM. Please do not be late!!! We will pack Linda and my car and I will be pulling out of the parking lot by 8:30. Plan for a full day. We may not be home until 8 pm

    I may be interested in this but wondering how are you planning to get there -- taking the train from New Haven. If so, could anyone give me a ride to New Haven, I live in Wethersfield. Or a ride into Brooklyn would be great too.
