Are you going to the Prom?

Poseidon's-Parade

Everyone who’s anyone on the peninsula will be at the Poseidon’s Prom on February 27th. The Poseidon’s Prom is a party to raise funds for the 2nd Annual Poseidon’s Parade held on the strip of boardwalk between 106 – 97th street (Rockaway Beach). I was blown away in September when I attended the inaugural event. I predict this year will be triple the mermaid mania! Take a look at pictures from last years parade here. Tickets to the Prom are $40.00 which include open bar (you can’t beat that!), appetizers, and hot beats by DJ […]

newlyFED: Thanksgiving Edition

Our Thanksgiving table.

I love Thanksgiving. It may be an understatement – I really, really love Thanksgiving, a holiday that focuses on food and family. Whats not to love about that? While for years I enjoyed the day as a guest, the past couple of years my mom has let me cook with her. I have mostly focused on sides, and I get so excited I wind up making a lot of them. Last year I made more than a dozen sides, and the problem was with timing all the sides with one oven. It’s not an easy […]

Inaugural Poseidon’s Parade – Spectacular Success

poseidonsparade-rockaway1

As the parade approached the 97th street stretch of the new boardwalk, I immediately thought, “This is like a New Orleans second line!” The Poseidon’s Parade was a block party in motion. The parader’s merged with the spectators and everyone just started dancing. The old and the young and everyone in between partied in celebration of Rockaway and the end of an awesome summer! Congratulations to the organizers (the Rockaway Mermaid Brigade) for their hard work in creating a truly special community event. I have know doubt that the Poseidon’s Parade will become a longstanding Rockaway tradition.   The creativity […]
