A Trip to the 70s at the Huntington Hustle

This past weekend, the Huntington Free Library in Westchester Square held the Huntington Hustle, the 70s themed sequel to last year’s glamorous 20s party. With proceeds going to Loving the Bronx (They are doing such amazing for our Bronx parks) and drinks sponsored by Deep Eddy Vodka, you know I was bound to have a good time. Metro Optics sponsored the door prize for best eyewear (that my mom won, btw) and Morris Perk was there to serve up some light bites.  Plus, who can pass up a costume party?

Anyhow, check out a couple of photos I took at the party. And hopefully we’ll see you at the next one!






Third Annual Fair @ the Square

Maybe it was the gloomy weather, but I think the Bronx Council on the Arts’ annual street fair in Westchester Square could’ve used a boost of energy.

While some vendors sold beautiful photography, paintings, or jewelry , others seemed to be hawking a hodge podge of knick knacks.

A gap in tables and activities from St. Raymond’s to Frisby made the fair lack cohesiveness. This might have been prevented by closing E. Tremont between these two streets and rerouting the 40 and 42 buses to Williamsbridge. Other street fairs do this and I think it would have made a tremendous difference.

Some of positive points of the fair included Drew Torres‘ Jason Mraz-like performance and the children’s activities including the pony rides, magician, and face painting.

Hopefully, with BCA moving to the Square soon, it’ll be even better next year.
