New Poll

It's been a rather slow and dreary start to 2012 here in Forest Hills, hasn't it? Nothing new has opened in a while. But, there certainly is a lot in the works, as you can see by my poll below. If none of these gets you excited, well, then there are always the new elevators in our subway station.

But seriously, if you are feeling a little blue thanks to the miserable, basically snowless winter we've been having, well here are a few things you can do around the neighborhood to cheer yourself up:

  • Visit Emily's Sugar Rush on Austin. Have you been to our neighborhood candy story lately? This place is awesome. It is now busting at the seams with stuff. It has grown into a really cool store. (They even now have Fruit Stripe Gum, my suggestion from way back thank you very much.)
  • Grab a coffee and a pastry at La Boulangerie. Just soaking up the atmosphere at this adorable new place can get you in a great mood.
  • Go Greek at Agora. I just had their New England clam chowder the other night. Quite good if I must say so myself.
  • Grab a brownie at Brownies & Cream. Another new place on Austin with some delicious treats.
  • Oh, and just wait a week. I hear that by this time next week we might actually have a real winter snow on our hands. I know, how many times have you heard that this winter. But predictions have been all along for a major change to a snowier, wintry pattern in February. So all you snow lovers, get ready. :)
