Most Different Museum in New York Of All Times: Museum of Illusions

Entertainment Culture Music Museum of Illusions Fernanda Paronetto

I recently visited maybe the most different museum in New York of all times, the Museum of Illusions! The eye-tricking illusions were super fun and extremely curious!

When we think about museums, most people immediately think about the big, famous ones like the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET), MoMA, the Whitney and so many others. If you’ve been with us for a while, some other off-the-beaten-track museums might also come to your mind!

But, a few weeks back, I found one maybe the most different museum in New York of all times: the Museum of Illusions.

Originally from Zagreb, Croatia, they are quite famous is other corners of the world, like in Austria and Slovenia. On September 20th, they finally landed in town and are creating quite a buzz, after all, optical illusions are quite fun to experience, don’t you agree?

That same week, I met with René Gjoni, the CEO of the museum, that was super kind to walk me through the all the installments and illusions. After that, I just HAD to go back and get it on camera for your guys to see!

“Visitors can learn a lot about vision, perception, the human brain and science through our attractive and fun exhibits. In that way, they also learn why our eyes see things that our brain does not understand.”

This fantastic interactive museum, located one of 14th Street’s busy corners, offers over 70 different activities visitors can experience. They are all based on science, math, biology and phycology, but in real life, they are extremely fun and curious! Many are quite simple after we find how they work but, I have to agree that creating them can be certainly challenging.

I passed through absolutely all the illusion and love them all, but the ones that I probably enjoyed the most were:

  • Rotated Room – Are you ready to radically change your view of the world? How about for 90 degrees? In this room you can walk on the ceiling. Your imagination is the limit!
  • Tricky Stick – This exhibit plays with your sense of space. The human brain will automatically suppose that the stick will not fit through the hole;
  • Moving Picture – As you move, the image seems to swivel and follow you. Three-dimensional paintings when viewed from the front initially give the impression of viewing a painted flat surface that shows a perspective view;
  • Swap Noses – You can switch different parts of your faces if both of you, at the same me, move up and down;
  • True Mirror –  We might think we see ourselves in traditional mirrors, but although they appear to show us how we look, in fact they reflect images that are sign significantly altered by being backwards. Step towards the True Mirror, which enables us to see ourselves as others see us!
  • Tilted Room – Try to walk slowly in the ‘Tilted Room’. Can you do it well? It may feel wobbly and difficult to walk in here.

In addition, there are a few exclusive illusions that are only seen in New York City:

  • Thermal Grill – The thermal grill illusion is a sensory illusion. When someone presses a hand against the grill, he or she experiences the illusion of burning heat;
  • Following Eyes – The following eyes are an optical illusion in which the perception of hollow concave eyes look like normal convex eyes. If you stare at them and walk left and right – they seem to follow you around;
  • Zoetrope – A zoetrope is a device that produces the illusion of motion from a rapid succession of static pictures.  This variation uses a rapidly flashing strobe light to illuminate the models, producing an illusion of motion.

So, I can say it’s a place to visit with kids, friends of all ages, family! It’s really entertaining, fun and that will give you countless reasons to laugh! And, you’ll be able to take some of the coolest pictures, and share them on all your Social Channels for your friends to see! I guarantee, it’s will go viral!

Have fun in the Museum of Illusions and share your experience with us: #BehindTheScenesNYC and #MuseumOfIllusionsNewYork!

VR World NYC: A Virtual Reality Experience

Culture Music VR World NYC

As we wake up each day, Virtual Reality is becoming more and more parts of our daily lives, and obviously, our future! Come explore what VR World NYC is all about!

As we wake up each day, Virtual Reality, or VR as we most commonly say, is becoming more and more parts of our daily lives, and obviously, our future!

Today I’m sharing with you my experience at VR World NYC. They are the biggest virtual reality center on this side of the globe with 2 floors and over 50 games, films and experiences for you to try!

The video above shows you some of the ones I have the most fun with, but I do have to say, they are all quite entertaining. You can definitely spend several hours there, since there is just so much to see.

So, what is Virtual Reality?

In a very simples way, it’s an interactive technology that is computer generated and creates experiences that are not possible in the real world, using many of our senses.

And, in the middle of New York’s chaotic 34th Street, you’d never expect to find a place like this. It’s not only super amusing for kids and I’m sure all adults will love it too! I certainly had a great time!

Oh! It’s also a great spot to host a party! There are several cool spaces for groups from 20 and over 400! So be sure to contact them for more details. You can also contact us to help you out or even organize a corporate/team experience.


One of the highlights: Moveo

You can me inside this one in the video! It’s the first 360º free-rotation VR simulator. You go through fully immersive 3D worlds, flying through space and you experience the gravitational pull of objects nearby.

Exclusive to VR World NYC, MOVEO is harnessing cutting edge technology to create a truly immersive experience.

The simulator is the first of its kind to use independent three axis rotation, connecting the human experience with a responsive audial, visual and physical environment.

I also really enjoyed the experiences on the 2nd floor, once specifically that I was rock climbing in Thailand. It was just SO real. My legs literally got numb by virtually climbing up a cliff and looking down!

It’s crazy how you literally feel everything as if you were actually there!

As I said above, it’s a great place for kids! But, if you’re coming to New York City with kids, but you’re not sure if it’s a good idea, take a look to see all the infinite reasons why NYC is great for kids!

Ray’s Candy Store

This is a classic! Ray’s Candy Store is one of the most traditional spot in the East Village. Ray and Stella opened over 40 years ago, serving residents and visitors 24h a day since then.

I’m a huge fan, and I’ve written about them before and even shot a super cool boomerang for my Instagram Page with Ray himself behind the bar.

I’d recommend to literally try everything, but I’d start with the one I love the most, the fried Oreos! I promise you won’t regret it!

In addition, the milkshakes are also super refreshing, as well as the soft serves. Plus, everything that has Nutella is a must have, in my opinion. And , finish off the beignets! Phiuf!

Let  me start with OH. MY. GOD. The first time I had Dun-well Doughnuts I couldn’t believe how delicious, how fresh, how tasty, how well-balanced and soft they were. Plus, I was in awe when they finished off telling me: “Yup, they are also vegan!”

It was like I had found heaven on Earth! Hahaha! So, this is truly one of my favorite doughnut spot, that is always on the top of my list.

Dan and Christopher founded the place back in 2011 and today they have two locations – one in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn.

How it started?

“Dun-Well Doughnuts started as a food craving when Christopher Hollowell (the “Well” in Dun-Well) called up his buddy Dan Dunbar (The “Dun” in Dun-Well) after having watched a Simpson’s anniversary episode that featured Homer’s favorite round confections rather prominently.”

They have countless options and even some special ones, like the Mac’N’Cheese.

222 Montrose Avenue – East Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Hours:
East Village: Sunday – Thursday – 9am – 10pm | Friday- & Saturday – 9am – 11pm

And, to finish in style, I will show you what Wowfulls Ice Cream is all about! We were hosted by David Chan, one of the founders, and he told us a bit about the most instagrammed ice cream in New York today!

They started off as a vendor in the famous street market, Smorgasburg, and today they have this beautiful location in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

We tried the:

Tasting The Biggest Wine Bottle I’ve Ever Seen, at Macari Vineyards

Day Trips and Travels Macari Vineyards Wine Tasting

When people come to New York, they forget that their trip doesn’t to be confined within the 5 boroughs. The state of New York is beautiful and filled with amazing adventures. I explored the North Fork of Long Island, known for the countless vineyards and wineries, like Macari Vineyards!

Since I’m a huge wine lover and I decided to take you on a journey with me, to one of my favorite wineries, Macari Vineyards. This gorgeous family-owned, family-operated vineyard and winery is located just 1.5 – 2h from Manhattan and the trip itself is a beauty.

Based on the North Fork in the Long Island region, it’s known for being the home to countless great wineries spread throughout these lands.

Their story goes way back to the 1930’s, 40’s when her grandfather, Joseph T. Marcari Sr. started producing wine in his basement located in Corona, Queens – with his dad and granddad.

Several years go by, business starts flourishing and in the 1960’s they decide to purchase a 500-acre property in Long Island – the same land they are currently on. This old potato farm took quite a few years to regenerate and go back to becoming super fertile.

But, after that happened, and they were able to start producing wine, business took off and never stopped!

Now, what to expect when you arrive at Macari Vineyards?

The first glance at the property is already breathtaking. Everything these is impeccably taken care of, to the smallest detail. Inside the main house, you’ll find the store with their numerous wines and different bottle sizes. There, you are also able to do some wine tasting, before deciding on which bottle to actually purchase and take home with you.

This house has a huge and beautiful porch. The perfect place to continue your tasting with a great prime view of the winery. It’s the perfect start to your experience at Macari.

After you’ve tasted their wines and paired them with a few yummy appetizers – like a great cheese and charcuterie platter – you can explore and tour the property. And, of course, continue your tasting.

Where To Go For The Best Cocktails In Brooklyn?

Nightlife Bars Top Cocktail Spots In Brooklyn Rabbit Hole Fernanda Paronetto Jared Zuckerman

New York is known for having some of the coolest bars and best signature cocktails in the world! So, we decided to show you a few of my favorite spots, serving the top cocktails in Brooklyn, to start your drinking adventures throughout NYC!

Many of you come to New York in search of the hottest bars and crazy cocktails in town! So, due to countless requests, for the very 1st episode of our 2nd YouTube Season, we decided to shoot a short a sweet video about 3 of our favorite bars to start off your journey to find your favorite spot!

I, once again, invited my friend Jared Zuckerman, a travel and food expert, to come explore NY with me, off the beaten path!

We visited 3 places in Brooklyn, with fantastic cocktail: Rabbit Hole, a true local hotspot, Lighthouse BK where we tried their signature cocktails and saw how they insert sustainability into their business and finally Huckleberry Bar, with their seasonally driven menu and famous outdoor patio!

We got a bit tipsy along the way, but I think that that was the point, right?

Oh! And don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE to our channel!!!

Disclosure: Do not EVER drink and drive! Call an Uber or just head to the subway for a quick and commute back home!

The Rabbit hole is truly one of the secret gems in Brooklyn. The spot is over 10 years old, but it didn’t start off as a restaurant/bar. The owner, Lawrence Elliott, opened a bakery called The Read Café, with the most delicious homemade pastries. In no time, it became the neighborhood’s to-go spot, filled with the local crowd.

Their pastries are still known for being fantastic and their best sellers are the cookies, muffins and scones.

But, today we can to talk about their cocktail bar! We decided to try two drinks and the result was as expected: super soft, well-balanced and flavorful drinks!

We had the French Marguerita made with tequila, cherry liquor, ginger and garnished cherry, and The Smoke, that is a mixture of Laphroaig – a Single Malt peated Whisky, clove syrup and lemon juice with burning stick of rosemary.

It’s on the top of the list for drinks. Plus, they also offer an amazing brunch, lunch and dinner menu and their outdoor garden is perfect for the warmer months!

Hours: Daily, from 9am – 11pm

The 2nd place we visited was Lighthouse Brooklyn. We’re written about them in the past, and decided to shoot a video since we love it! This spot is also a winner for two reasons: First, their cocktails, of course; and two, their Mediterranean inspired menu is out of this world!

We spoke to the owners, and brothers, Naama and Assaf, that showed us the reasons of why their spot is always overflowing with great people.

The entire story about Lighthouse is focused on sustainability and locally sourced ingredients and the concept that everything is recyclable. As they say: “We recycle, compost, and collaborate with other green minded organizations to grow, improve and educate ourselves, our staff, our guests.”

Well, now to the drinks…Assaf prepared the Mezcalito, made with Mezcal, jalapeno, agave, fresh lime and salt and the Summer Sangria, with gin, St. Germain, sake and seasonal fruit.

The Sangria was super refreshing and the Mezcalito is perfect if you’re into spicy, stong cocktails, but nonetheless, smooth to drink!

We have to confess that we did have their mezze platter and I do recommend it blindly. It’s extremely tasty. It has smoked labne, hummus, tahini + arissa, charred eggplant labne, olives and a hot staff.

Now…headed to our 3rd and final stop…

Hours:
Monday: Closed

And for our grand finale, we headed to Huckleberry Bar, that is famous for its seasonally craft cocktails!

We had the talented and beautiful Serena doing a few of her favorite drinks for us!

We tried the Strawberry Field, obviously named after the Beatles’ song, made with house-infused Dill Vodka, wódka, house-made strawberry syrup, lemon juice!

The other drink was The Sun Also Rises – a great mix of square one botanical vodka, Amaro Nonino, yellow Chartreuse, cinnamon syrup, Angostura bitters and prosecco.

Their menu is quite entertaining with very peculiar names for their drinks, like: Message in a Bottle, Drinking at the Gym, Bahia Via Brooklyn, and my favorite, I Demand Satisfaction! Pretty curious, right?

Why go there?

“Though it’s just about the best bar in East Williamsburg for a date, the atmosphere is just as dynamic as the menu; it’s the perfect place to enjoy a sunny day from the shade of our lush garden, to relax by candlelight on weeknights, or to get your nightlife fix on the weekends with some of Brooklyn’s best DJs.”

Hours:
Monday – Friday: 4pm – 4am
Saturday – Sunday: 1pm – 4am

Location: 588 Grand Street

And, as I said in the beginning, if you’re drinking do NOT drive, and if you’re not driving drink with moderation and responsibility, so get tipsy in the BTSNYC style and have fun with your friends in all these super cool spots!

Drinks and Food Crawl in Brooklyn with Eat and Be Full

I had the greatest time with Jared, from Eat and Be Full, shooting for our YouTube Channel! He took me to some of his favorite food and drink spots in Williamsburg, Brooklyn! I’m sure you’ll love the video and have a fantastic time with us! We did laugh a lot!

I met Jared Zuckerman back in 2015 in a foodie event I went to with another dear friend called Jabber Al-Bihani, founder of Komeeda! And, I have to say, I was instantly captivated by his charm and bustling energy!

Jared is the Owner & Founder of Food and City, a consulting and brand development company who has flooded social media with some of today’s most viral food concepts. He works with some of NY’s top restaurants and is also an influencers as @EatandBeFull on Instagram.

It took some time to actually reconnect after meeting him, but after we did, we just stayed in touch! The conversation of shooting a video was going on for a few months, until we were finally able to actually find a date in common that worked for both of us. Phiuf!

And, voilá! We hope you love the final result, as we did!

Below are the places we went to and we’re sure you’ll get quite a few laughs out of the video!


The Bedford

I’ve written about The Bedford a while back and have been there quite a couple of times myself. It’s truly a great spot, with a peculiar story, amazing food – not only for meat eaters but also for vegans and vegetarians – and delicious cocktails.

One of the pretty interesting facts about the place is that it was actually built inside a former garage, and was transformed into a speakeasy and gastropub with an awesome, rustic décor.

We tried one of their bestsellers, the MacNCheesy, which is actually a burger with fried MacNCheese buns holding the it all together, with a delicious sauce! Plus, it’s paired with  French fries! Yum!

The Craic is also one of my to-go bars in Brooklyn and I’m there quite a lot with my friends. Why? Well, it’s surely a “locals-only” spot, they have a gorgeous full bar, a pool table and a juke box with the most fantastic playlists. It’s a place easy to simply pass by and not see it, so be sure to pay attention when looking for it!

I have to confess, every time I’m there I’m mostly hanging around the pool table, hahaha! Yes, I love playing pool and I’m pretty good at it too.

Jared is also there quite often, so much so that every time he walks in and sits at the bar, the barmen know exactly what to serve him: Old Fashion made with bourbon. I had The 488, made with Titos vodka, St. Germain, lemon juice, agave, fresh mint, strawberry, topped with a splash of soda water.

Oh, and they have a daily Happy Hour ‘til 8pm.

This is for the “sweet tooth” crowd out there, like us! Sweethaus is a sweet haven, so be sure to carefully look at everything they have, before purchasing!

To start, the place is very charming with a “vintagy” style décor. They are well-known for their cupcakes. I’m personally always looking for the best Red Velvet cupcakes in town and their Red Velvet is truly to-die-for.

Some other bestsellers are: Vanilla & Chocolate topped with cookie dough, Salted Caramel, and the Everything Cupcake that, as they say, is for the “salty and sweet combo lover! The chocolate cake has bits of caramel, marshmallow and oreo.  It’s then frosted with peanut buttercream and rolled in pretzels, salted caramel pieces, oreos and mini peanut butter cups.”

But wait! There’s more! At the back of the store, they have an insanely huge wall with hundreds of candy bowls to pick from! So be ready to splurge on your diet and put together your candy bag(ssss)!!!

Hours:
Sunday – Thursday: 8am – 8pm

Last, but definitely not least, Loosie Rouge! We adore this hidden spot located in South Williamsburg, an area still relatively free from tourists just like we love!

They have a few difference ambiences. As you walk into the restaurant, Loosie’s Kitchen & Café, it feels like you entering a fantasy world. The restaurant’s décor is beautiful and uplifting, with a skylight ceiling that allows natural light to come in! They serve divine local food, from a menu that changes every few weeks, which we think is pretty awesome!

The bar right next door had a separate entrance, though it’s also internally connected to the restaurant in the back. They have fantastic music and heavenly cocktails.

When we shot the video, I tried the Poached Pear Salad with baby gem, green goddess, blood orange and castelrosso. Jared, a proud meat-eater (hahaha!) had an insane dish – the Loosie’s Fried Chicken, with house pickles, biscuit and hot sauce.

There is actually so many things to try and new dishes every couple of weeks, that it’s a place you can go back again, and again, and again!

Fê is our Founder & CEO! She’s Brazilian (Yup! Not a New Yorker!), but her indescribable passion and curiosity for NY makes her a New Yorker by heart. Fê worked in companies like Kimberly Clark, Quintessentially, Vogue Brazil and Iguatemi Group, and after 12 years of working for these fantastic companies, she decided to go solo and move to NYC!
She lives in Brooklyn since April of ’15 and has been tirelessly working on BTSNYC, working with huge companies on corporate projects, practicing her Arhatic Yoga meditations, finding time for gym and friends! Phiuf!

A Different Type of NYC Truck: Uprooted Flower Truck

Shop Specialties UpRooted Flower Truck Client

New York City is known for the countless food trucks roaming tirelessly around the city. You can find food trucks, ice cream trucks, juice trucks and even “fashion” trucks. But, Uprooted Flower Truck is the one and only, flower truck!

Uprooted describes themselves are “NYC’s florist on wheels”, which I think is pretty awesome. They are pioneers in launching this business and we have to agree that if you’re a pioneer in NY, you’ll most likely thrive!

It all started back in April of 2015, the exact month that I actually moved from my hometown São Paulo, Brazil to New York City!! What an exciting month! Hahaha!

Founders Ashley Custer and Kristin Heckler ran a super successful Kickstarter campaign, raised $15,000 and started their entrepreneurial path! And, what a journey!

New York is known for being the birth city of countless successful startups, but is quite tough having a brilliant idea no one has thought about, right?

When I met Ashley, back in February of 2016, she told me that her very first job was working at a flower shop, at the age of 14.  She majored in Criminal Justice at Temple University, but felt totally uninspired with the current social system. When she moved to NY with Kristen, her Co-Founder and Partner, she got back to working with flowers to brighten people’s lives – and also, her own.

On the other hand, Kristen, always had an entrepreneurial spirit. As her first job, she founded a local event planning business in her hometown: Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She studied Women’s Studies and Spanish at Duke University, but chose to follow a career as a Theater Director. That was actually what brought the duo to NYC in 2013. Kristin was going to attend her MFA at The New School. Today, she continues to self-produce theatre as well as working on Uprooted Flower Truck.

So, let’s talk about the truck!

The truck has a floral cooler, electrical system, work counters, and sink with hot water – surely a fully functional florist on wheels! Plus, there is no way to miss it, when it passes by or is parked somewhere around the city. It’s gorgeous and with beautiful bright colors!

Flower bouquets are prepared and sold in three sizes – “the studio”, “the loft”, and “the penthouse” ranging from $12 – $45. Pretty good price for NYC!!!

Are you organizing an event? Needing new ideas of how to “wow” your clients, your team or your friends & family can be quite exhausting. We certainly know how event planning can be crazy! Phiuf! So, besides being able to have all your flower arrangements organized by Uprooted Flower Truck, have you ever thought about actually “booking a truck”? They organize custom floral events including bouquet bars, flower crowns, & branded bloom giveaways.

And, of course, weddings! I love everything about wedding, but the flower decoration is something I always look forward to! Why? Well, I have friends in the flower business in Brazil and became passionate about it! Anyway, their arrangements are certainly the style I want for my own wedding. They’re extremely colorful, with exotic flowers, unique arrangements and that no one will ever have the same! So, talk to the girls to explain what you want for your wedding!

Now, if you’re the type that loves Doing It Yourself (DIY), the girls organize pretty cool workshops to learn how to make the perfect flower arrangements.

You’ll be sure to learn all the tips and tricks behind doing the perfect vase and bouquets. I had an “express” course when we shot the YouTube video and was amazed at little tricks that make all the difference on the final result!

And lastly, if you live in New York and love having you home weekly decorated with beautiful flowers, but like every true New Yorker, you have absolutely no time to refill your vases, take a look at the Uprooted Subscription! Besides saving money, it’ll save you tons of time and fill your home with gorgeous arrangements. As they explain:

“Treat yourself or one of your favorites with a gift that keeps blooming! Choose your delivery dates, tell us about your preferences & we’ll send you the freshest flowers in town!”

We are sure you’ll enjoy it!

If you want to really go “pro”, take a look at the post we wrote about the Flower School in NYC.

Hours & Locations: Uprooted Flower Truck hits the NYC streets Thursday through Sunday each week. Follow them on Instagram and Twitter for exact parking locations and other surprise pop-ups!

The 5 Top Coffee Shops in Greenpoint, Brooklyn

Curiosities Our Bucket Lists 5 Top Coffee Shops Greenpoint Sweetleaf Coffee Roasters

I love coffee and exploring new spots and revisiting old ones is always a thrill! Today I share my 5 top coffee shops in Greenpoint, Brooklyn! If you are also a coffee fan, go check them out!

Yes, everyone that knows me, knows that I’m c-o-m-p-l-e-t-e-l-y addicted to coffee (good coffee!) and I drink it throughout my entire day! Being Brazilian, I think it’s just a natural part of me. Ha!

I have friends that tell me that if they drink coffee after lunch time, they can’t sleep at night. And, that just sounds so crazy… I can literally drink a gallon on coffee at night, roll over and sleep like a baby.

That said, I love exploring all the new coffee shops in New York. We also have some pretty amazing traditional ones that are still going strong. Those bigger chains are certainly not up my alley at all. I like the smaller ones, independently owned that roast their own coffee and the smell just fills up the entire place.

We’ve already shared the 5 best bars in Greenpoint I love. So, today I’m sharing my favorite and 5 top coffee shops, also in Greenpoint. After all, I do love everything about that neighborhood.

A Secret NY Music Gig at Hell Phone Curated by Us!

Our Experts Recaps Sofar Sounds Hell Phone Brooklyn BTSNYC

On April 28th, we curated another Sofar Sounds NYC! This time, it happened at a super trendy speakeasy called Hell Phone, in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn! And, we KICKED ASS that night! Check it out!

We love New York’s music scene. The city is the home of an infinite number of amazing musicians and artists!

Every 3 months or so, we curate a spectacular live music event in partnership with the team at Sofar Sounds NYC.

We choose the 3 bands that are performing during the night….and honestly? WE KICK ASS, believe us!

On Saturday, April 28th, we had a fantastic night with a mix of different style musicians. The event was hosted at a pretty awesome speakeasy bar in East Williamsburg, called Hell Phone. It’s in the back of a coffee shop called Ange Noir Café.

Way in the back of the coffee shop, you’ll see a beautiful red phone cabinet…open the door and walk in to explore! Be ready for a great night!

For this show, we brought in to perform:

  • Jair Oliveira: a famous Brazilian singer, composer and producer. He is a former student at the renowned Berklee College of Music, in Boston and plays MPB (Música Popular Brasileira). In other words, traditional Brazilian Pop Music;
  • Olivia Chindamo: a beautiful Australian vocalist! She’s best known for her natural and effortless ability to improvise or “scat”. As the 2016 Bell Award winner for “Young Australian Jazz Artist of the Year”;
  • Kenny John: a very special musician our Founder, Fê Paronetto, met one day passing through Union Square subway station in NYC. He was playing the trumpet and she was in awe! Kenny learned to play the trumpet and an early age and today brightens up the day of thousands of commuters in NYC, playing Jazz and Soul music!

And…we had a surprise! We had a special guest joining in for a song! Aline Muniz is good friends with and was invited by Jair Oliveira to sing one song on stage with him!
