Week 46: Fancy Ice Cream & Famous Pudding

Wednesday, December 14, 2016
Location: Gansevoort Market (Meatpacking)
Event: Grand Opening
Food: Big Gay Ice Cream

Gansevoort Market is one of those bougey indoor food halls that seems to serve exclusively poke bowls and arepas. To celebrate their new location, they were giving out free samples from vendors. While I'm normally more of an Ample Hills girl, I couldn't resist the shimmer of the Big Gay Ice Cream stand. I indulged in a little chocolate and vanilla swirl soft serve which went surprisingly well with the cold weather.

Location: Sonos Store (SoHo)
Event: Smorgasburg x Sonos Holiday Pop-Up
Food: Banana pudding

Magnolia Bakery taught us all to love banana pudding, but their $5 per spoonful price makes it a rare treat for me. Baonanas is a newer player on the scene that partnered with the Sonos store in SoHo to give their goods away for free. As is well documented, I'm very embarrassed about taking pictures of food in front of other people, so I went and sat on a stoop outside in 35 degree weather to photograph and eat my free pudding. Jude Law happened to walk by a few seconds later so my antisocial behavior paid off.
