Play with balls, eat some balls ;)

Look for me at Governor's Island today for RECESS on the red picnic blanket & Rukhsana will be riding a Kronan bike with a basket full of cake balls ;)

And check out the rumors we starting spreading on New York Magazine's Grub Street:

Not Going to Vendys or Le Fooding? Play Bocce and Eat Cake Balls

The folks at the Vendys tell us that the awards are sold out this weekend, but here’s another fun food-truck event — prepster clothing label Tretorn is throwing a bocce party (similar to their badminton tournament earlier this summer) on Colonels Row at Governor’s Island this Saturday from noon till 5 p.m. Last time, the ubiquitous Van Leeuwen truck made an appearance, and this time, the Le Gamin truck will be there, DOC Wine Shop will sell beer and wine, and the invite also mentions “the ladies on the bike serving cakeballs!” (Don’t ask us! But it sounds promising, doesn’t it?) No Ordinary Monkey, the crew known for its dim-sum-palace parties will supply the D.J.’s. More info here. A laid-back alternative if you’re not up for that full-tilt hipster-foodie juggernaut, Le Fooding, this weekend.

Update: The cake ball mystery has been solved! The red velvet cake balls are care of Sweet Jewels.

Good Afternoon

This week has been particularly busy for this librarian. It has been all about cake balls in the evening and into the wee hours of the morning and listening to Ted Talks with my baking buddy Rukhsana.



Join Us for RECESS on Governer's Island this Saturday!

Please join RECESS: BOCCE with TRETORN this SATURDAY SEPT 26TH from 12PM-5PM as we turn COLONELS ROW at GOVERNORS ISLAND into a sea of bocce courts to welcome the start of the Fall season. 32 diverse teams from the likes of MTV, SAATCHI & SAATCHI, FLAVORPILL, THOMPSON HOTELS, COOL HUNTING and many more face off for the chance to be crowned RECESS bocce champion 2009 season. There will be additional courts for the public to test their skills at the game, as well as an opportunity to learn about the game if you're a beginner. LEGAMIN food truck will be onsite offering European delicacies, DOC WINE SHOP with their beer and wine selection and look out for the ladies on the bike serving cakeballs! FUNCTION DRINKS will also be providing sport beverages while KRONAN BICYCLES are offering free test rides around the island. So come out and play, and join us for the last RECESS soiree! The boys from NO ORDINARY MONKEY will be on the musical decks.

Free 5 minute ferry leaves the Battery Maritime Building in Lower Manhattan at 11am and every half hour after that.


Balls to the Wall.
