Bust Magazine's Holiday Craftacular
A somewhat over-subscribed feast of craft-type goings-on in Brooklyn

After grabbing the L train to Williamsburg and scoffing bagels and waffles at the Read Cafe we headed along Bedford Avenue and on the Warsaw venue at 261 Driggs Ave Greenpoint/Williamsbur for Bust Magazine's Holiday Craftacular.
The venue was an amazing place - I'd love to put on an Offline night there - but inside it was so jam-packed with craft-toting types that it was hard to see everything on offer. Here's some pics.
Old shop in Williamsburg.
Yuppies ahoy! The great big intrusive slab of concierge-protected gentrification has slapped itself on the Greenpoint/Williamsburg border, rudely towering above everything else in the area.

Squirrel on the move. Thankfully, it doesn't look like one of Brixton's crack squirrels.
We'd returned to Greenpoint to check out Bust Magazine's Craftacular, set in the amazing Warsaw, a Polish venue on Driggs Ave.

Takin' the bucks.
At times it felt like I was in the crush of a January sale.
Inside, things were very, very busy.
Look! An Offline badge! (But nothing to do with my club).

The impressive curved bar at Warsaw.
It got so busy we had to leave. It was a great event but just too popular for its own good!.
