New York is busy, so I’ll keep this short and sweet. Openhouse Gallery’s Park Here is open from noon to 8 pm all week and all weekend. Mommies and their kiddies are up early for Mommy Mornings, which runs from 8:30 am to noon. Mommy Mornings features yoga, singalongs, organic coffee and teas and safe, warm playdates for both generations.
This weekend, Park Here is its natural, beautiful self. Plush grass, picnic blankets, oversized beanbags, hammocks, a slew of food vendors, WiFi, rustic trees and good friends.
We’ve got Brooklyn’s Who You Love fashion pop up featuring live acoustic tunes, a great photo booth, hoodies and T-shirts. Then at 5 pm, the pop-up park gets a visit from music-inspired Wines That Rock. Come enjoy Rolling Stones’ Forty Licks Merlot, Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon Cabernet Sauvignon and Woodstock Chardonnay. For free. For sale, Park Here has the wonderful Hong Kong Street Cart and Stuffed Artisan Cannolis, a one-two punch of savory and sweet.
Saturday, Hong Kong Street Cart and Stuffed Artisan Cannolis are joined by Intoxicating Confections cupcakes. Quite unbelievably, Starbucks is in the mix too, setting up a park cart and pouring free cups of its Christmas Blend.
Sunday is an open day at the pop-up park. We like to keep it relaxed on winter Sundays, especially before the hectic craziness of pre-Christmas week kicks off. Nolita Mart & Espresso Bar, Hong Kong Street Cart, Stuffed Artisan Cannolis and YaYa Tea Garden are in the house. Openhouse. Get after it.
Join more than 7,000 fans on Facebook + Twitter and see the full Park Here lineup featuring free concerts, wine tastings and a dozen local food vendors at ParkHere.info. Or head down to 201 Mulberry St. in Nolita for the free pop-up park. Park Here is open from noon to 8 pm daily. Mommy Mornings is open from 8:30 am-noon daily. Spring St. on the 6 train, Broadway-Lafayette on the B,D,F,M.
