Cap’n Cook #1778 New Spirit Australian Shepherd Rescue
Historical Fact: in 1778 Captain James Cook was the first European to travel to Hawaii! He was a British navy captain, explorer, cartographer and navigator.
Well, in Williamsburg, we had our very own 10 week old Cap'n Cook Aussie pup explorer: adventurous, outgoing, friendly and fearless.
Here are some of his adventures during his short time with us. Today he sets sail (rather hitches a ride) for Maryland by way of Pennsylvania to meet his adopters and go to his furever home!
He is one lucky pup and we were very lucky to have had him in our pack. He brought smiles to many and had many visitors including some neighbors who requested visits in the hood after seeing Mama’s Instagram.
We wish him well and big congratulations on finding his furever home. He can hang with us anytime!
We partied with our friends at Lavai Maria to celebrate the new Spring 2013 collection! Come here to get your fill on vintage, some original and lots reworked and reconstructed. Mama got a cute cropped button down plaid shirt. Auntie Michelle got a handmade mini quilt for Coby!
The Mast Brothers produce the most amazing delightful chocolate. Subtle nuances in flavors akin to wine: smoke, berry, bark, earth just to name a few! When we first moved to Williamsburg, they were a small production on N. 3rd street. Still producing in small batches, they have grown into a larger facility with a retail shop in the front and the factory in view in back. Tours are available as well as private events.
The pretty paper packaged bars can be found more and more in specialty shops across the country. They turned our Mama into a chocolate lover. She says she can taste the love and attention they put in every bar.
We love visiting here. The DOH rule states no dogs allowed so we hang outside and “wait”. Most always we catch the eye of a Mast Brothers worker who will come outside to say “Hi!’ to us.
Bellocq Tea Atelier 104 West Street in Greenpoint, BKLYN
Dailola and Ollie: We had the best time at this very special tea shop, rather atelier. The tea is selected and blended with care, stored in the most beautiful containers and is displayed in the most exquisite environment. It is a true find amidst industrial warehouses by the water on a very unsuspect corner of Greenpoint.
We love it there! And most especially, everyone there loved having us! They create a truly unique welcoming world with wonderful energy.
This tea is available in select stores but we highly suggest making the trek to come here and be whisked away from city life over a cup of tea even if for just a few minutes. It’s a dream.
