An Epic Weekend

Mehanata’s owner, the infamous Sasho, celebrated his birthday on Saturday. Cake was flying, the Kreptatka Bar Band played a mean set (and lucky audience members got all kinds of weird prizes), food and drinks were endless, and a little top secret knife dancing showcase went down on the upper level after 3.

Mishka celebrated a reunion of her finest fashion school classmates on Thursday – big thanks to them for coming out and starting up the party with us!

Finally, some shots of the beautiful Bastet Belly Dance troupe, who performed last weekend with all of their secret weapons…



Twilight Vision covers Gypsy Tabor…

Some of our favorite Mehanata regulars waxing nomadic at the Gypsy Tabor festival… Raphlex is photographing, Michelle is dancing, and Mishto is getting interviewed about Brooklyn wildlife. Watch out, it gets pretty deep. Click to watch.

Burdel Dali does GYPSY TABOR!

September 11 – 13th was a weekend of live music, chaos and fire-dancing, falling fences, mosquitoes, homemade rakia, long skirts, thin-walled tents, witch-trees, glass-drinking, and cultural appreciation.

It was worth the three hour journey of various vehicles, with dollar store pit-stops for plastic belts and lighter fluid, to finally have our terrified cab driver pull into the lot at Floyd Bennett Field. The New York Gypsy Tabor Festival was definitely a weekend we won’t forget (because…we took photos). Thanks Sasho!!

“Morning” & “Breakfast”…

See you next year at the Gypsy Tabor…!
