Arts & Crafts Festival, NYSEA, Coffee [A Busy Weekend in Long Beach]

The Arts and Crafts Festival @ Riverside Boardwalk is happening this weekend. 9pm to 6pm both Saturday & Sunday. Over 300 vendors and many local ones, including Get BeautifiedArdenDesigns.

NYSEA: NY Surf week is still going on, although the waves are looking kinda small and choppy, so who knows if any competition will happen Saturday or Sunday. Still, lots of fun stuff happening, so check out NYSEA online for more info and schedule:

[quote]The new shop has pastries, seats, regular hours. (5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekends). Coffee is still the main event, though, with everything roasted on the premises. In addition to pulled espresso drinks, you can have your joe dripped, auto-dripped or cold brewed.[/quote]
