Hey! Another busy weekend, which is a good thing. Sunday was Bust magazine's Get Primped Craftacular: handmade clothes, jewelry, and beauty stuffs.
I got there early - the first 300 visitors got a goodie bag!
But first, breakfast in McCarren Park:
Actually, it's funny because I got to the fair and one of the vendors asked if she could take a photo of the Hag patch for a friend who identifies as a hag and I had to tell her about this graffiti I saw on the walk to the Craftacular, pretty much summing up how I identify:
Inside: I was really mostly here for the tarot readingzzz but I managed to pick up a couple things for mother's day, and for a friend who will be moving soon.
A lot of the beauty products (if not all) were vegan, which was great! There were a couple food booths inside that I didn't really bother with but Bust was also giving out free bottles of Red Jacket Orchards juice. This is Tart Cherry flavor, which I really liked. Definitely tart but with a nice aftertaste.
After leaving, I went down to G's where we did some deep Spring cleaning/tossing out old crap. Afterwards, we walked down the neighborhood a bit to Pilar Cuban Eatery, where we split a vegetable platter ($11.)
It was all really well cooked and very fresh. Definitely hit the spot. The interior is nice, the counter guy was nice and attentive, even though it got busy. Pilar also makes an effort to have vegetarian and vegan options available daily, which is not always something you see with Cuban food! It is located around the corner from Clementine, if you need to hit yr sweet tooth.
Also, just a follow up from last weekend's zine fest, here's a picture of me at the Runcible Spoon booth! Haha, it kinda looks like I have a unibrow but WHATEVER. The Runcible food zine isn't vegan but it's really funny and cute. You can buy it on Etsy. Umlauts you can buy through PayPal. That is all.
