We've come a long way, baby!

So Sunday is the 2009 incarnation of the New Amsterdam market, which our most ancient fans (hi, mom!) will remember as the explosive birth of the People's Pops. Like all births, it was both excruciating and triumphant. But the pain outweighed the pleasure just enough for us to follow through and turn it into a business, and to everyone's surprise, but especially our own, WE HAVE!!

Not bad for a gander that was just supposed to be a one-day social experiment.

So join us this Sunday Sept 13 at the Fulton Fish Market from 11-4 to celebrate the brilliant future of New Amsterdam.

And pops.

I'm feeling nostalgic, so here's a little taste of last year at the New Amsterdam. That seems like it happened about 10 years ago!

From the first batch of pops ever. Rhubarb burns so goddamn easily.

In awe of our creations!

Why the hell would they have frozen that way? And can we pretend it happened on purpose?

More importantly, how do they taste?

Well, people seem interested, at any rate.

Oh, Lucy. We miss you, girl.

I don't know if you can see it, but that horizontal sign says "Lap Dances by Dave, $5." I still wonder whether that's the direction the business should have taken.

We'll also be at the Brooklyn Flea on Saturday and Sunday, except that on Sunday, exceptionally, the Flea will happen under the Manhattan Bridge rather than under the Brooklyn Bridge.

If you come, say hi to Steve, our colleague in pops, who's coming all the way up from Athens, Georgia to spend time with us this weekend!
