Been living out of my backpack for the last five days on an excellent adventure...

Carolyn Tann Starr 2011

I'm sorting through some interesting photographs I took with my gal pal Emelia who is also a photographer. We've been chatting about possibly filming a few scenes in Brooklyn, NY and Mexico so I've been casing New York City for some Zagat rated Mexican dining with my girlfriends who are helping me scout film locations. Since it is my birthday month my gal pals have been treating me to some really neat foody paradise treats for April while we run around collecting eye candy.

South Mexican Flan with Strawberries is a must have desert and I enjoyed my visit to this wonderful little hole in the wall in Park Slope, Brooklyn to get some. I also sampled something new that I think you may want to try. They do fried grasshoppers and guacamole there and since Emelia dared me to have some of course I had to rise to the challenge, then blog about it (LOL). Never thought I'd eat bugs for brunch but I have to say it was pretty darn good. Kudos and congrats to Emmy for teaching me something new this week (LOL). ;-)

They have a patio in the back beneath a tent that is really cool but currently being renovated so you can not eat outside until the construction is completed. We plan to go back to eat under the tent because we're hoping to film there this summer.

The front dining area is very intimate but well worth the wait if a table is unavailable when you visit. It would very very tricky to film in such a small space but not impossible. It's on our short list of possible locations. We all gotta eat somewhere, eh? ;-)

Can't wait to hear the Shorties reaction to Mom eating grasshoppers. Would have loved to see their faces.

Keep having mad fun!!

Magaret, I don't think I should plant the bug eating seed in their little heads just yet. Stephen, the Minion Blur may get strange ideas like deciding to catch a quick snack from our FL yard to pop in the toaster. This is the kid who tried to toast our cell phones, remember? Dude frequently takes the concept of "think different" to a whole new level (LOL). ;-)

OMG - You hit my old stompin' grounds!  I miss the diversity of the food you can get in the city and I lovvvvved living in Park Slope.  We had a great life there.  I can't believe we left 15 years ago.  It must be so different now.  I do have to add that we are very happy where we are now . . . LOL

I think you're right about keeping mum on the eating of the bugs.  With your kids, you just never know . . . ;-)  Great story, thanks for sharing.  :-)

Sandy, we're going to be in the area again to shoot the Cherry trees in the Botanical Gardens. I will do a tour of homes collection for you. I love Brooklyn brownstones. If you have any particular streets you want to see let me know. I may have to ask hubby not to share this post with the shorties (LOL). ;-)

Your blog makes me realize  that I need to go on a road trip.  It's been awhile since I have been to the NE.  Hartford, Boston, NY.  

Posted by C. Lloyd McKenzie, Living Albuquerque over 7 years ago

C Lloyd, road trips are the best part of my blogging habits. I love checking out places people suggest to me because you may be missing out on something really stellar just an hour away. Sometimes I'm having so much fun I crash at a friend's place rather than drive home. My girlfriends and routinely run our mouths into the wee hours of the morning (LOL). :-)

If you happen to be on Garfield Place between 6th and 7th Aves - I'd love to see a pic of "Garfield North", a row of one-time single family brick homes that were bought by a developer and gutted and turned into an apartment building. 195 Garfield Pl. We loved living there - right in the middle of everything.  We were members of the food coop on Union St as well.  Thanks.  :-)

Sandy, I sent Emelia a text and we are hooking up on Friday around 12.30. I'll let you know when we are done taking photographs. May even post live tomorrow. ;-)
