A Toast to the BX

After my emotional experience in the Dominican Republic, it didn’t feel right jumping straight into outfit photos. Writing about a fun place in my favorite borough? Not a bad place to restart.

Right before leaving for spring break, I gave my friend from home, Brittany, a tour of my Little Italy Bronx neighborhood. We had some delicious pizza, and then stopped by the Bronx Beer Hall in the Arthur Avenue Market for a quick drink. I read a review in the Times, but it was my first time there and it just happened to be happy hour.

I’m not much of a drinker, but I do enjoy a hard cider now and then. The Beer Hall exclusively serves craft beers from the Jonas Bronck’s Beer Company, also based in the borough, which has a long brewing history. Brittany and I caught up for a couple hours, enjoying drinking out of mason jars. Too fun. I also ran into some Fordham friends, and it was a great way to spend an afternoon.

If you’re in the Belmont neighborhood, I’d definitely recommend the Bronx Beer Hall as a pit stop. Really though, I recommend anything that gives the Bronx a good rep.
