Eat, Drink & be Merry!

We've had 4 new businesses open on Lark Street in the past couple of weeks.

Crisan Bakery & Edible Art Gallery- Delish desserts, fine pastries and to-die-for gelato. This is the proverbial "kid in a candy shop" because you won't know what to start with. YUMMY!

Al-Baraki II- opening in the old Peas & Beans restaurant, serving the finest Lebanese food this side of Hudson (the first location is in Troy). They have some of the best falafel in town!

Good Leaf Gourmet Tea Co.- in the old Lark Tattoo spot, this is the second location for the Co with the first At The Warehouse. I only have two words- BUBBLE TEA!

Capital Wine & Spirits- your favorite neighborhood wine shop is back open and under new management. It's been sorely missed all these months but it's back, better than ever and building up their selection.

So, eat, drink and be merry!

SUPER Art on Lark!

Saturday's Art on Lark was the best ever! Thank God the weather was gorgeous. Almost all of our 130 artists showed up in good time. The music was top notch. The performers, actors and dancers were amazing. And the fashion show- SUPERB! I've already got ideas for next year. BIGGER, BOLDER, BETTER!

Moment of Silence

One of our headlining musicians for Art on Lark, Erin Harkes, tragically lost her sister this week in a car accident in Colorado. We are saddened by Erin's loss and the Lark Street community send their thoughts and prayers to her and her family.

Bloggin' Larks!

Welcome to the Lark Street blog! There's just so much going on at Lark Street that we needed a blog to keep the world up to date. For example, we just had a new bakery open called Crisan Bakery & Edible Art Gallery. It's DELICIOUS! Go try it now.

We also have Art on Lark coming up next week on Saturday June 21st. It's going to be amazing! We've closed the street and we're bringing in more artists, more musicians, actors, performers, you name it. I can't say enough about it!

So, let the good times on Lark roll!
