Fast as Lightening! Let “Shwings” take you across the finish line!



The New York City Marathon is happening on November 3! Whether you are a running enthusiast or a spectator, the energy and excitement surrounding this great event can be felt from the East to West Coast. Running 26.2 miles is no easy feat, but the feeling you have when you cross the finish line makes those months of training and long runs SO worth it. While out on the route, runners need all the support they can get and any extra good luck charm is well worth it. We LOVE the lightening bolts and wings from Shwings. These bad buddies will give you that additional edge you need to complete that 26.2! You can totally forget “hitting the wall.” We wish all the runners the best of luck!

Trick or Treat! Get some Sweets!



Two more sleeps and Halloween is here! We are SO excited to see all of the creative costumes on 5th Ave., from superheros and princesses to ghosts, goblins, zombies and more! We’ll be handing out candy so be sure to stop in! And, just because we REALLY love to get into the spirit, we’ll be dressing up too! See you on the 31st! 


Dine out in Park Slope on Oct. 29 and support CHIPS


Who doesn’t LOVE eating out?! On October 29th you can eat out and do good by supporting CHiPS. This neighborhood group has been providing hot meals and hope to families in need since 1971. We definitely want to do our part in helping them help others. Participating restaurants will donate 15% of your dinner bill to CHiPS. That’s a lot of good!! The list of participating restaurants is getting longer everyday, so be sure to check the complete list here! So many delicious options, it will take us today and tomorrow to decide where to go!
