IT’S FINALLY HERE!!!! GOOGA MOOGA HAS ARRIVED!!!
For the next three days, if you were keen enough to get tickets, you’ll be able to get your hands on our Car Bomb Parfait: a Guinness stout fudge brownie topped with a Bailey’s ricotta creme, Irish Whiskey ganache, and beer nut praline. This is a Googa-only special which you’ll never be able to find anywhere else outside of this weekend, SO YOU BETTER COME AND VISIT US.
We’re located in “The Woods” portion, directly next to the beer tent and across from the ATMs. Best way to find us- look for the main stage, walk towards it, turn left slightly and head in the direction of all the trees. We’re in a nice shady nook with lots of picnic tables, next to Northern Spy Food Co., Rippers, Caracas Rockaway, Kasadela, and my favorite-named food business of all time, The Big Banana.
You know you’re a parent when you hear the term “Big Banana” and this is the first thing you think of. And because you can recite the entire episode verbatim.
Instead of posting the event map, which you’ll look at once and forget, I suggest you download the official Googa Mooga App, which will not only tell you where everything is, but also let you check out everyone’s menus in advance. Then you can make your own personal shopping list of everything you need to eat and check it off as you go. My list currently includes grilled maple bacon skewers from Landhaus, a Fois Gras doughnut from Do or Dine, and Tacos al Pastor from Salvation Taco. And speaking of tacos, another big event has just been announced for us…….
Tickets just went on sale for this years NYC Wine & Food festival, and Robicelli’s will be providing the desserts for Tacos & Tequila hosted by Bobby Flay on October 19th. We’ll be everywhere that weekend as our book comes out two days before — and if you happen to be at Googa Mooga, you’ll be one of the first to see the cover! (don’t despair if you’re not making it - I promise to post a pic on Instagram at some point this weekend).
If Googaing about is not your thing, you can certainly just pick up one of these cupcakes that are going around to various shops, or a whoopie pie at any Red Hook Lobster Pound or Jordan Lobster Farms location, then follow along on Twitter where I’m sure I’ll be posting lots of nonsense all weekend long. And speaking of Twitter- congratulations Mark Turetsky! You won two tickets in our Googa Mooga giveaway by naming your pick for most underappreciated sitcom episode of the last 30 years:
@robicellis Do the Urkel, where Steve repaired a divided America through the power of dance.
Excellent call, Mark. Excellent call. In this crazy world we live in, we can’t forget the power of Urkel to unite and heal us all.
