Williamsburg Week.

Friday, June 22, 2012

What a week! My brother Max and sister-in-law, Margaux, paid an impromptu visit to Brooklyn and we spent three sun-soaked days eating up a storm and weathering a sudden heatwave. Below, some photos from our week together, courtesy of our Instagram accounts. (By the way, I just joined - you can follow me at @my_shokoko!) 


Highlights included French fries and ice cream at Reynards at the Wythe Hotel (our waiter told us it was the best order he'd ever seen), sunset on the hotel rooftop, and oysters at Maison Premiere. Also, that's me at middle right, spying on cute boys from Max and Margaux's hotel room window.

Oh, and I forgot to mention - my new Equals Record post went live on Tuesday. This week, I wrote about the general lack of free time in my life these days (which is truly a double-edged sword). You can find the post, here. Thank you so much for reading!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! See you on Monday.

I love Instagram...I need to get me an iPhone, though, because regardless of which program I go through, my Droid's camera is the worst. Your photos are gorgeous!

trishie said...

Lovely instagrams. Never knew your brother is Max Wanger...I'm a fan!

I love the fries and ice cream, truly inspired. I'm so glad you jumped in the Instagram pool. It's pretty addictive. Have a wonderful weekend!

Ahhhh you got to the Wythe. I love living vicariously through your blog.

Loved this post! Especially since I'm moving to the hood next week! The french fries at Wythe Hotel will be my first priority (after packing I suppose).

Emily said...

Looks like such a fun 3 days! I hope your brother and sister in law didn't melt!

Stefania said...

Your brother is Max Wanger? I like his work- first heard about him on CupofJo :)

Heather said...

Gorgeous photos! And I totally understand the double-edged sword of having a packed daily schedule. I love being busy with work, freelance projects, friends, family and my hobbies--but sometimes the lack of downtime can be tiring. I actually posted about that on my blog this week, too!

What did we do without Instagram?

And I totally know what you mean about the lack of free time (yet I get mini panic attacks when I have too much "free time").

Great photos! You look gorgeous from all angles Shoko!!

French fries with mayo is truly one of the best combinations. It's the bread and butter of fried things. I can't get enough. I've also heard great things about the Wythe! A staycation may have to happen before summer's over!

I'll be sure to follow! Luving the pics! The Wythe just opened up recently right? You could teach me a thing or two about Bklyn. I went to High school out there and we've checked out the zoo, the Botanical Gardens,Coney Island & the Aquarium but that's about it {the touristy stuff}.
Has your fam left already? It's Renegade Craft Fair weekend! I'm hoping to check it out. Happy Weekend!

Visitors are so fun! I'm glad you had a fun time getting to know your neighborhood a bit more. I've been wanting to stop by the Wythe Hotel. I hear the rooftop bar has awesome views! So glad you see you on Instagram too! Have a great weekend and try to stay cool!

I feel like I'm the last person in the world without instagram! Lovely photos!
Also, I had no idea Max was your brother - clearly talent runs in the family!

Lisa said...

Shoko, congratulations on joining Instagram! I'll make sure to follow you, once I've got my own account set up properly - it's been on my to-do list for too long now! Thanks for sharing these pictures - it looks like a great time! And I can't wait to read this week's contribution on The Equals Record - I very much relate to this topic myself and am curious to hear your take on it! Have a great weekend! :)

Akiko said...

I know I've said it before, but I share the feeling to your article again (only I'm thirty-something!). Great column and always look forward to reading your writing. Oh your brother is an amazing photographer! p.s. hope you got a postcard by now- xo akiko

Shoko said...

Trishie & Stefania, he will be so happy to hear that!

Dana, I'm so glad :)

Molly, a staycation at the Wythe would be phenomenal! I highly recommend it!

Dellah, thank you! I think you'd love the Wythe (it did just open) - and Williamsburg in general! It's so much fun - my favorite NY neighborhood for sure. And yes, my brother and sister-in-law left on Friday. Always so sad to say goodbye!

Jacquelyn, thank you! That is so sweet of you to say.

Akiko, yes, I received it! Thank you SO much - it's so lovely!
