The 20,000 Word Post (Or The Great Googa Mooga)


They say a picture is worth a thousand words–here’s a novel’s worth on my experience this weekend at the highly anticipated Great Googa Mooga Festival in Brooklyn.  I could bore you with details, but I think everyone can  imagine what happens when you combine the best of NYC’s food scene with exceptional beer and wine, outdoors, on a sunny weekend. (In case you can’t, NYC food+beer/wine+great weather= 1 heck of a party. Drink up.)
