Baked Good Happy Hour at Eleni’s

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Back in the day, the Chelsea Street Market was a Nabisco factory. The building no longer cranks out Nilla Wafers, Oreos, FIg Newtons, or any other officially trademarked boxed cookies, but it’s one of my favorite places in the city to go stare at stuff. The stores are full of Costco sized Nutella jars (if you have a spare $80), frog shaped-bowls, ugly clothes in expensive boutiques, fun bookstores, fancy pants grocery stores, and bakeries with enough fresh bread, cookies, cakes and candy to build a substantial fort. However, I focus more on eating the baked goods than building with them. Especially at Eleni’s bakery during their happy hour of sorts. For the last two hours of the day, all of the baked goods on their counter are half off. So that means you can get delicious cupcakes, brownies, cookies, blondies, etc. for less than a buck. Which is way better than getting a pack of animal crackers from the bodega and discovering they’re stale.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
