May 10: Second Annual Brooklyn Blog Fest The Second Annual Brooklyn Blogfest will be on Thursday May 10th at 8 p.m. at the Old Stone House located on Fifth Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets in Park Slope. Theme: The Impact of Brooklyn Blogging There will be special speakers, photo bloggers, an open mic (sign up soon), refreshments from a top notch Brooklyn eatery. Lots of time to meet and greet. Donation (Tip Jar): $5.00 (to defray costs).

OK, so it takes place in Park Slope, but this event is what inspired me to start CHB last year. It's a really cool opportunity to meet your favorite Brooklyn bloggers. I plan on attending and hopefully speaking, but it's my last night of class so I'll be late. Please say hi if you see me there.

May 12: Habana Outpost reopens for summer

May 20-21: SONYA Stroll Noon - 6:00pm both days. Rain or shine. (718) 789-2545 Over 100 artists and their work at locations throughout Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, and the western edge of Bed-Stuy. Free and open to the public.

This is one of my favorite events in the neighborhood! It's a great way to see more of the neighborhood, walk around all day, check out some cool and largely affordable art, fashion, jewelry and best of all, see the inside of hundreds of art studios. You won't believe how many warehouses in Wallabout are a maze of artist spaces inside.
