The 40th Annual Atlantic Antic is this Sunday! September 22 2014
Got any plans this Sunday? What, you're probably hanging out with friends doing brunch, or maybe spending the day with your parents. Well, screw that noise, you're coming to Brooklyn! That is unless you live really far away. In that case, stop doing everything I tell you and live your life! Make your own choices.
As for the rest of you in the NY vicinity, cancel your plans! Brooklyn is calling. On Sunday, 9/28, the streets of Atlantic Avenue will be closed to make way for some of the coolest merch, tastiest food, sexiest vendors (ahem), and most talented bands. Make way for the 40th Annual Atlantic Antic!
What is the Atlantic Antic, you say? It is only the largest street fair in NY! Don't believe me? Check out the photo below. For someone like me, this is like a second birthday. For someone like you, it's a chance to check out some really awesome stuff.
The 40th Annual Atlantic Antic takes place on Sunday 9/28 from 12-6pm. It will span the entire Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn. I'm not sure where OMUNKY will be located in all the madness yet. When I find out, I will post an update to this post. Hope to see you there!

Rainy Days September 15 2014
One of the greatest things about doing street fairs in NYC is also one of its biggest drawbacks. You get to be outdoors the entire day, which also means if the weather isn't too nice, you get the worst of it.
You can easily separate new vendors from veterans based on the equipment they bring to the shows. Merchants who have done this long enough know to bring tents with sidings, some type of weights (more important than you think), and bins or other kinds of weatherproof storage for your valuable goods. There's nothing worse than being unprepared for the elements.
Rainy days don't necessarily mean a show is a bust. In fact, sometimes, your shelter will bring potential customers into your tent. This can lead to purchases that otherwise wouldn't have happened. But, more often than not, rain makes what could have been a great street fair simply mediocre, especially when it comes to breaking down at the end of the day.
The lesson to be learned here is this. If you're enjoying a rainy day stroll, and happen upon a street fair, stop by and chat with some of us. Most likely we're not having the best of days, and could use a little cheering up :)

Nyack Springfest 2014 Recap April 14 2014
It's Like I Never Left
Well, that was fun! NYC street fairs are a blast. But, after awhile, they can all seem very similar. With Nyack, I feel like I'm part of the community. From seeing a lot of my friends enjoying the festival, to random OMUNKY t-shirt sitings, Nyack makes me feel very welcome.
The day couldn't have been more lovely. The sun was out, I got to wear shorts, it was perfect. Thanks, Nyack, for a lovely Sunday.
