Key Lime Pie and Swingles!

Swingle from Steve's Authentic
Blondie's a Florida girl. She knows her Key Lime Pie. I'm a New England girl. And I'll fully admit I don't know jack about real Key Lime Pie. Fortunately there a thing called the internets that introduced me to the wonders of Steve's Authentic Key Lime Pie in Red Hook...

Tangy and sweet with a wonderful graham cracker crust their pie is perfect for a picnic or barbecue. Better still is their Swingle, a frozen mini key lime pie on a stick dipped in dark chocolate. Quite possibly one of the most awesome thins I've eaten on a stick.

If you're looking for a treat for your 4th of July celebration, Steve's is open today (July 3rd) and according to their twitter, they "still have Swingle-minis for our Twitter friends, mention the Tweet and you'll get the sweet with purchase of 8 or 10" Pie. OPEN TODAY!" Sweeet.

Hey Blondie and Brownie!

I'm in need of advice! Can you suggest a cute cozy place for a first date in NYC? Not too pricey but a place where you can have fun? Any kind of food but I guess something simple? It's supposed to be next week but I'm out of ideas :(

Hi Hungrygirl,

I've had good dates around the East Village, Avenue A or B. Specifically, I've gone to Flea Market Cafe and Back Forty and had a good date. Another fave of mine is Little Owl.

@hungrygirl: It's been a long time since my last first date, but Lawman and I do love a good cheap date. I really like Kashkaval as a date spot. It's a gourmet market in the front and a cozy wine bar in the bar. The food is delicious, lots of plates for sharing--the tapas sampler plate is great and they also do both chocolate and cheese fondue. Have a great time!

Growing up in Miami with a key lime tree in my backyard, I've been pretty skeptical of Steve's, is it really that good? I don't live too far away but the idea of good key lime pie in Brooklyn seems preposterous.
