Do the Turkey Leg

The Atlantic Antic Took place on Sunday, September 27th, 2015 and was what I would describe as a melting pot. Swarms of people from all walks of life gathered and enjoyed the many festivities that were available at this annual Brooklyn, NY fair.

One thing that was definitely not lacking was food. 

There was all types of food that patrons could dabble in; sweets, snacks, meals, drinks. All were available and looked quite delectable. One food item I found particularly peculiar were the jumbo turkey legs. 

Do the Turkey Leg

You've seen them in Disney World and now somehow they have made their way to the streets of Brooklyn. I'm talking about the 1.25 lbs of meat on a stick that seemed to be tempting hungry fair-goers at every corner. 

The turkey legs were so huge, it could probably feed about two or three people. Realistically though, one person would eat one 1000 calorie leg; a meal on a stick. 

The giant meat on a stick looked a bit odd because I've never seen them so big. But it is an on-the-go type of way for foodies to enjoy a bite. 

Thank God for all the portable potties around.  After doing the turkey leg, it probably will definitely have you bouncing and dipping for one because that's a lot of meat to eat on the streets. Maybe you could wash it down with diet soda!

Musicians Treats and Guitar Reeds

Ray Charles said, "I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. 
Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. 
It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. 
It was a necessity for me - like food or water."

I wonder if author, Lisa Amowitz realized the truth in this when she not only displayed information about her upcoming book, Until Beth, at the 2015 Brooklyn Book Festival that took place on Sunday, September 20, 2015, but also put out a set of the most delicious guitar shaped cookies that she homemade herself and shared with all the curious book lovers that stopped at her table. 

Musicians, lovers of sweets and amateur bakers want to know, where did you get those cookie cutters from? Very cool! 

Let's see; a suspense novel about a musician and it looks like it might be an interesting strum. I don't know about you, but it makes my mouth water even more for a taste of the book. Until then, I'm satisfied with chomping on the delicious cookies and simply stroking across the synopses    until I gain access to the pick.
