Home Sweet Brooklyn

Made it in to Newark at 11:30pm after flying from Homer to Anchorage to Portland to Seattle, overnight in Seattle, to Newark.  Got to Brooklyn at 1:30am and slept in until noon.

Friends here have emailed several things going on this weekend (see links below), all which I plan to enjoy.  Ah, the city that never sleeps!!!

First, Saint Patrick's Day Parade (the second largest in the city) out in the RockawaysGroups are hosting "Walk a Mile in our Shoes" to draw awareness to the ongoing support needed in this area of Queens so heavily impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

Second, New York City's Vegetarian Food Festival.  The line up of speakers and their topics is quite impressive:

Ah, the city that never sleeps, and neither do I!
