SCORE! Pop-Up Swap is a recurring swap meet where everyone is invited to bring items they no longer want and in turn can take whatever treasures they find. For only a small entrance fee of $3-$5, you can take as much as you can carry, a great deal for the financially challenged, like myself. The array of people donating added to the range of departments offered, resulting in a multitude of amazing items up for grab. Though I was mainly interested in their clothing and shoe sections, SCORE! also includes books, music, electronics, arts & crafts and housewares.
Last Sunday marked the first official Big Apple Tweed — New York City’s inaugural tweed bicycle ride. Cyclists from as far as Harlem and Washington DC came together dressed in their tweed-inspired Sunday best. We met in Grand Army Plaza before embarking on our tour of Park Slope and Fort Greene. The ride culminated with a free buffet brunch at the lovely French-Moroccan bistro Kif.
