^^The BierHalle was awesome - it was a super friendly and communal space, great for meeting new friends and the outdoor/indoor setting was perfect for summer days!
But perhaps one of the coolest places we stumbled upon all day was the Brooklyn Art Library, which created the Sketch Book project. So first, anyone can have their works (a sketch book all their own) archived in a real live gallery that connect people on a global basis. It features and houses over 33 thousand sketch books from 135+ countries. You can come in an check out a sketch book, you can purchase sketch books and you can participate by doing your own!
And my favorite spot to grab a drink by far that day: a roof top with teepees and strung lights. The Gorbals had a great view of Brooklyn and the sunset, fabulous drinks (I had an amazing spiked slushy) and the most unique table settings. I could have spent the rest of our trip in that teepee table...
After shopping along Bedford Ave (Williamsburg Brooklyn's main drag) and full of local shops and unique finds and gifts, we headed to dinner. And long, wonderful dinner outside in the courtyard of Extra Fancy. This is an amazing foodie location with extra special drinks... like their signature "Fancy" topped drinks.
The meal and side dishes and appetizers were equally to die for. I can't tell you how much I loved this place for all food, drinks and ambiance. Three Thumbs Up!!! (our of 2, so you know it's good!)
