These aren’t just parachutes. They’re parachutes with sandwiches attached. via Instagram
Tired of having your food handed to you from behind some counter, or delivered to your table by a server? Aren’t we all?

We’ve got an outlet for those urges though, because the Brooklyn Craft Company (61 Greenpoint Avenue) is having a crafting party with nine different kinds of crafting projects this month, where you can glue, embroider and knit to your heart’s content.
