  • The sun setting over the crowd at GoogaMooga.

    Last weekend, the stars aligned at the first ever Great GoogaMooga food and music festival in Brooklyn's beautiful Prospect Park. Though the lines were long, they only attested to the fact that good food, chefs, restaurants and bands, like The Roots and Hall & Oates, plus the chance to spend a beautiful Spring day with friends will always draw an enthusiastic crowd.

    Hard at work.

    To get you guys in the Foodspotting spirit, we teamed up with the Great GoogaMooga on two fun contests. Huge thanks to everyone who came out to say hi, spot food and spend two gloriously sunny afternoons with us!

    NYC Foodspotting ambassador Meng goes for it.

    There was a pig roasting inside this heavy metal pig.

    Our Orlando Foodspotting ambassador Julius was in town!

CHAYA is treating us to an incredible brunch spread, including mimosas, pastries, their new brunch dishes and a brunch dessert. Who knows, if we're lucky, we might get to eat their life-changing Warm Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding.

      Thank, Fiona! Street parking would be nice, especially on a Sunday when it's supposed to be free. I'm just a little worried it might be a little busy crowded.
