Father’s Day Foodie

Father’s Day is upon us, and it’s always difficult figuring out something different to do for your old man. You don’t want to get him a tie, because well….that’s just boring!  A Black and Decker tool kit? Been there, done that. So we at The Loft have come up with some unique alternatives to your more “traditional” gift ideas to help you out this Father’s Day.

As the saying goes, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.”, so with that in mind, here are two great options for the foodie in your life. First, if you are in Brooklyn, New York, and want to chow down, bring your dad to Five Leaves for an amazingly memorable meal. Located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn on 18 Bedford Ave, Five Leaves offers an American/Australian fused menu with a “made at home” taste. It’s a small space with a lively, yet cozy atmosphere, but make no mistake, it’s popularity draws quite the crowd, so plan your arrival time accordingly! You can dine outside, or stop by the coffee window, if you’re passing by in need of a special “pick me up”.
Here are our picks if you’re dining at Five Leaves:
Breakfast: Ricotta Pancakes or The Moroccan Scramble
Lunch: Warm Roast Organic Chicken
Dinner: Oysters, The Five Leaves Burger

Max Kelly Photography Do you prefer to pamper Dad at home??  If so, another great idea is to show Papa that you’re a real “Iron Chef” by preparing him a great meal yourself. When picking up groceries for a special meal, you’re not going to choose shortcut ingredients, but rather, DO IT RIGHT! Try something new, and log onto GILT.  “Gilt Taste is an online market giving you direct access to artisan products and ingredients, many of which have only been available to professional chefs until now.” By going to the online market, you are just a click away from obtaining the finest ingredients for any meal. They offer delicious meat, seafood, cheese, and other products with serious flavor and quality.  So skip the horrendous lines at the supermarket, and show Dad how much you care, by preparing his main course with ingredients from Gilt Taste. After all, a full Dad is a happy Dad, right?.Max Kelly Photography

Born To Be Wild: Olsen Twins

Celebrity Birthday: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Age 25

Happy Birthday to child-stars turned fashionistas, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Born on June 13, 1986, Mary-Kate and Ashley quickly became household names sharing the role of “Michelle” on the hit show “Full House” at the age of 9 months. As they got older, their supporting role had evolved into their own series of videos and books, perfumes, and even dolls of themselves made by Mattel. They soon became successful fashion designers, producers, and businesswomen, launching “The Row”, and putting their face on everything Badgley Mischka. The Olsen Twins are true pop culture and fashion icons. We wish them a Happy Birthday, and congratulate them on their many achievements!
