Tasty Thursday

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Hey, everyone! I don’t want to alarm you, but just about a six minute walk from myplasticheart is one of the best cupcake places I have ever been to. Now I know that cupcakes have sort of had their day in the sun, and you might be in the school of thought that it is time for them to step back. With all of the cupcake reality show buzz, you might be ready to take a break from these cute personal cakes. Now for me, I was one of those people that totally and utterly embraced the fun and kitsch behind cupcakes about 5 years back when I was living in New Zealand, which is where I seamlessly acquired the name Team Sweet. But even if you don’t absolutely love cupcakes and all they represent, if you like tasty treats, you will LOVE this place. Little Cupcake Bakeshop located at 30 Prince Street, makes more than just cupcakes too (like pies, cookies and bars!). And by that I mean they bake a lot more than cupcakes and they also, from what I can tell, are movers and shakers, being involved in educational outreach as well as green initiatives. And well, if you won’t take my word for it, here is a persuasive video made for Marie Claire China, featuring sexy ladies and sexy cakes shot on location at the Little Cupcake Bakeshop, created by Amber Gray Studio. Enjoy!


Retna at the Bowery/Houston Wall

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

Thanks to my friend Clams Rockefeller, I have some awesome photos to show you of artist Retna doing his thing at the wall on the corner of Houston and Bowery in NYC. If you are near the gallery, go check this out. And have a look here to see the previous mural by Faile.

MaNY Project in NYC

Monday, December 19th, 2011

I recently stumbled upon the MaNY Project and wanted to share some info about it, here on the blog. MaNY is focused on producing outdoor murals and public art exhibitions throughout NYC, including murals within walking distance of myplasticheart.

MaNY’s projects have included collaborations between:

Radical! x Veng in NoHo

Creepy x Gaia x Nanook x Veng x Yok at 145 Ludlow

How & Nosm on 14th St

OverUnder x Veng x Ephameron at Coney Island

Radical! at Coney Island

and REKA x Quel Beast x Infinity at East 4th Street in collaboration with the ArtUp program (video above)

This is definitely a project to watch out for, improving your eyes’ experience in the streets of NYC.

Toys Around Town: teany

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

The next time you visit myplasticheart and work up a hunger, head over to teany, a restaurant opened by Moby and Kelly Tisdale. Located at 90 Rivington St, teany’s menu features a wide array of tasty food, and although it is a vegetarian restaurant, I brought along two non-veggies and they were equally impressed. I’d recommend the veggie blt, which is what all four of us ended up getting, since it sounded so tasty. Along with super good food, teany also has 98 teas on their menu, hence the name of this little cafe. Holy Moly! Caramel, vanilla, jasmine, honey, ginger… the list goes on and on! And if tea isn’t your thing, don’t worry, you can indulge in another fancy drink, such as a raspberry lime ricky, lavender lemonade or an italian soda. Yum! So next time you are in the mph area, pay a visit to teany and see what all the fuss is about!


And if you are in the mood for a cup of tea after reading this post, make sure you check out our cup and saucer sets, including this one from I Love Dust or others featuring designs from Jon Burgerman, Sam Flores, Frank Kozik and Si Scott.
