I will be working at the NYC Honey Festival at the Rockaway Beach Boardwalk this Saturday. It just occurred to me to post it here. Come take advantage of one of the few remaining nice Saturdays of 2012! And get free samples of local honey, and drink locally-brewed beer with honey in it, and check out a honey extraction and glassed-in observation hive! And probably listen to me geek out about varroa mite mitigation techniques!

It's a bit of a haul from New Jersey, but my housemate may be game for an expedition...

Greg Nog took the words right out of my mouth. Sounds awesome though!

We were there, but could not find you! :(

Thank you do much for posting about this event, though -- we had a great afternoon, and ate a wide variety of super delicious things! Also I bought a tiny kite from a vending machine and managed to get it airborne for a few minutes, which was an unexpected bonus.

I wound up working at the honey tasting booth all day! It was super fun. I'm glad you went!
