Happy Halloween!

We've loved seeing your costumes on the street this weekend & we thought you would like these decked out pups at the annual Dog Halloween Parade at Tompkins, our neighborhood park.

Come by and show us some pics of your costumes in case we missed you this weekend!

Saturday
a candlelight tour in an 19th century home.
Walking through a darkened home with a group of strangers sounds scary enough to us, but make that home the Merchant's House Museum a.k.a "Manhattan's most haunted house", a preserved familial home from the 1800's, with a tour led by staff members who have personally encountered the inexplicable and the paranormal, all by candlelight, and you have the ingredients for a downright spooky experience. Tours run every half hour from 6-10pm on Friday & Saturday. $25, $13 for members. 29 E. 4th St. b/t Bowery & Lafayette.

Sunday
the old standby.
What would Halloween in New York be without the annual Village Halloween Parade? Between the crowds, the costumes, and the revelry it is an unforgettable marathon of a Halloween celebration. This year's theme of memento mori is sure to cast a morbid spin on the typically outlandish affair. Pack a Tiny's picnic and report back with photos for us! 6:30-10:30pm, 6th Ave. from Spring St. to W.16th St.

Eat well,

Menu Spotlight.


If a salad and a sandwich were to shack up, the Veggiest of Them All would most likely be their offspring. Think of it as a portable salad with a whole grain bread wrapper. This sandwich delivers a fresh explosion of crunchy, juicy, bright flavors ranging from the sammy classics (spinach, sprouts, tomato & onion) to the rich & creamy (avocado & Goddess dressing) topped off with cucumber, carrots, and roasted red peppers. Add cheese or turkey/tofu turkey for just a little bit extra and your belly will thank you.

Eat well,

Eat well & shine on,
