Happy Holidays, Crown Heights!

ILFA's spending Thanksgiving on the Avenue for the first time since 2008, and on the recommendation of Sonja Sharp at DNAInfo, I took a long, pleasant stroll through the neighborhood today on my way to Gombo's Heimishe Bakery on Kingston and President. The walk was beautiful, and the bakery was packed with people picking up donuts for Hanukkah. ILFA picked out a jelly donut and a cup of coffee to warm me on my stroll down the parkway, as well as a trio to box up and bring home. I also stopped along the way for hard dough bread, which, as I learned back in 2008, makes excellent stuffing. Now it's time to get everything ready, but before I go, happy thanksgiving and happy hanukkah to all!
