a weekend in park slope & long island city

Before this weekend I had only been in Brooklyn twice and never stepped foot in Queens. With Casey being our trusty tour guide, Kelsey and I had a couple successful days of exploration. First stop in Park Slope was Zito's Sandwich Shoppe. Everything looked so good on the menu that we split sandwiches and devoured rice and mac and cheese balls. It was the best! Then we strolled down 5th Avenue and shopped the local stores; Goorin Bros Hat Shop being my favorite. After that Casey took us to Brooklyn Boulders, where he can be found most days. Let's just say climbing rock walls is not my sport and prefer outdoor climbing, ha! But we had a blast meeting new people and watching expert climbers!
Sunday we met Casey in Long Island City for church and fellowship. After a southern style lunch {y'all, there was corn casserole and I could not have been more excited} we walked around a few blocks and stopped for coffee at Sweetleaf.

I'd say this weekend was full of adventure. How was yours?
