Apple Picking and Brooklyn Hippies

Being that it’s fall and all, I’ve been itching to embrace all sorts of Autumn-y activities. I’ve drank every variety of Pumpkin beer, watched numerous B-horror movies and now I’m going to tackle apple pie. If you missed the Apple Pie bake off at Enid’s yesterday, shame on you, but now’s your chance to indulge in Americana goodness at New York City Apple Day.

Fittingly, “Orchard” Street will be taken over by local apple vendors to peddle all kinds of honeycrisps, galas and red delicious apples. There will also be hot cider, baked goods and walking tours for the food nerds.

If you’re not really into braving the shitty fall weather, and the “Wild Things” is sold out, I suggest hibernating until sundown for Brooklyn For Peace’s 25th Anniversary Party at Public Assembly.

Initially “Parents for Peace”, this organization has been mobilizing Brooklyn residents towards a more peaceful society since 1984. Don’t expect any Tibetan prayer flags or preachy speeches here, think more DJ’s, dancing and drinking all for a good cause of course. For the less civic minded, rumor has it there’s a keg party at the new south Williamsburg bar, the Woods tonight as well. For all those who drink without a cause.
