Planning a trip to Brooklyn in mid-October...where to begin?

Christina D | Aug 28, 2013 11:05 AM

Greetings from a Maryland 'hound!! My husband and I have never been to Brooklyn and when we decided we needed a getaway, it seemed a perfect opportunity to visit.

We plan on staying in an apartment on the riverfront, near the base of the Williamsburg bridge. I've been doing some research on this board and quite honestly, am feeling a little (ok, a lot) overwhelmed. My husband and I are mid-to-late 40's, love great wine and cocktails, prefer casual, creative places to white tablecloth establishments, and like to end the evening at friendly pubs with live music.

We'll have 3 dinners, 3 lunches and maybe 1 brunch before we head out. Breakfast will likely be something quick and easy (bagels, wraps, etc.). We'll have a car, but will probably travel by subway or taxi.

If you have any recommendations for me, they will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
