What is OMG Dessert Goals? If you’ve been following my blog, this was my second time attending this dessert convention held in Long Island City for an entire weekend. Last fall I attended their fall edition after winning contest tickets (which you can read about here), and this time around, I was extended an invitation to their spring reiteration.
It was set in the same location as last time; a big warehouse alongside the river that you’d never even know was housing all these delicious goodies til you walked in. This time, I got lucky and found street parking a few blocks away from the location. Otherwise, getting here is a little tricky by train since weekend subway schedules in NYC are a little sketchy and it is definitely a bit of walk to get here. This is probably the one thing I would like to see improved regarding the event. While the location doesn’t deter event goers - each session sold out! - it would have been nice to be easier to get to and locate with more signage and decoration as you arrive up to gate. It looks like a big shipping warehouse from the outside so you might miss it entirely if it weren’t for the crowd of sugar rush junkies lining up. Although! In its one defense, as you exit the warehouse, it is a beautiful place with a great view of the Manhattan skyline!Read More
