Our Internet Picks: July 27, 2015

Our summer intern shares her podcast, grocery store and event picks.

This summer, we’ve benefitted from the great work of Bard College student Acacia Nunes. If you’ve scoped out our calendar or navigated Brooklyn via our guide, chances are that she built the listing. She’s a brunch lover from Cambridge, MA who’s currently developing a map series for her final project — stay tuned!

Here are her picks for what to watch, drink, eat and more right now:

GO:

Few things say summer like fresh oysters, so on August 11, I’ll be joining the Brooklyn Grange for their “Oysters 101” class organized in part by the Billion Oyster Project: a long-term, large-scale plan to restore one billion live oysters to New York Harbor over the next twenty years.

WATCH:

I don’t get around to a lot of TV in the summer, but lately my friend and I have found an obsession with “Chopped” on the Food Network (we went inside host Ted Allen’s kitchen a couple of years back). It even inspired us to hold our own episode; there was no elimination, but we gave ourselves the same ingredients and came up with different dishes. Still one of the best dinners I’ve had this summer!

DRINK:

To break the heat, July has made me an avid smoothie drinker. I got to Brooklyn Crepe and Juice for their delicious mango, coconut and banana smoothie. I love getting to the bottom for a big sip of coconut meat.

EAT:

There are so many restaurants in New York city, but I often find myself cooking at home! Brooklyn Fare is my go-to grocery store.  It offers locally grown fruits and vegetables and a really great guacamole.

LISTEN:

Subway rides are my time to tune into recent podcasts. Last week I listened to a strawberry-centric episode of “Spilled Milk” with Molly Wizenberg and Matthew Amster-Burton. I recommend tuning in to their podcast each week for a funny, witty conversation about different foods.
