1. Theory Sample Sale
(Friday, November 16th - Sunday, November 18th. Fri:10am - 7pm. Sat - Sun:10am -6pm)
Who doesn't love a good sample sale? Head on over to Chelsea Market for the Theory Sample Sale (, 60% off Men's and Women's clothing. Theory makes beautiful basic and modern tailored pieces, but I feel are always priced ridiculously high. Fear no more because there are some major steals happening at this sale. Women's Tailored Jackets are now only $175 vs. an original retail of $395 and Men's Dress Pants are priced at $100 vs. the normal retail at $225. I'll see you at the cash register.
2. Ice Skating at Citi Pond - Bryant Park
(until March 3rd, 2013. Fri - Sat: 8am-midnight. Sun - Thurs: 8am - 10pm)
One of my favorite activities in the winter time is to go Ice Skating. It seems like the weather has finally broke and it's cold enough for the rinks to finally open. The best thing about this rink is that it is FREE. Bring your own skates or rent for only $14. See you out there Gordon Bombay!
3. Brooklyn Renegade Craft Fair
(Saturday, November 17th - Sunday, November 18th: 11am - 6pm)
Before the chaos of Holiday shopping begins head on over to Brooklyn's first EVER Renegade Craft Fair (East River State Park at the Williamsburg Waterfront). There will be numerous crafts, hands-on workshops, music, and more. I'm excited to find/check out all the wonderful letterpress holiday cards.
4. Tenth Anniversary Chili Takedown
(Sunday, November 18th: 2pm)
I love chili either vegetarian or meat friendly and am super excited about this chef throwdown taking place at the Bell House (149 7th Street Brooklyn, NY). Get your palettes ready and taste your way through at least 30 different chili variations. Previous entries range from pineapple-marinated brisket chili and a Thai fusion version. Those competing will be awarded by judges Rachel Wharton (Edible Brooklyn) and Cathy Erway (Not Eating Out in NY).
