a great way to spend a saturday in red hook. meant to be done in order, starting around 4pm and going through the evening. (note: there is a lot of awesome food on this tour, so pace yourself)
1. Red Hook Baseball Fields
jake furst: head to the fields around 4pm. watch the soccer games, read your book, whatever. plenty of room to stretch out and hardly a crowd.
2. Red Hook Ballfield Food Vendors
jake furst: head over to the vendors and grab a tamale or pupusa, elote (corn with cotija and chili powder) and a watermelon drink. don't fill up here; there are most culinary stops on this tour.
3. Sixpoint Brewery
jake furst: walk over to sixpoint, drink yourself a sweet action ale on tap, check out the rooftop farm and chill with those chickens.
4. Red Hook Lobster Pound
jake furst: head 2 blocks west to Van Brunt and meander north, checking out the stores and galleries. Grab a lobster roll to go at the Pound, and take it to The Ice House, backtracking a couple doors.
5. Brooklyn Ice House
jake furst: order up a beer and enjoy your lobster roll with a draught or two in their roomy back patio. if lobster ain't your bag, they have awesome $2.50 pulled pork sammies at the bar.
6. Steve's Authentic Key Lime Pies
Kristina Frantz: Love this: this is a summer must.. get a swingle - frozen key lime tart, dipped in dark chocolate, frozen on a stick!! key lime chocosiscle!
jake furst: end your night at perhaps the best americana bar i've ever been to. all whiskey all the time, and awesome bluegrass jams on saturday nights in the back room.
karen bonna rainert: Don't skip the Brookster. It's possibly the best baked good mashup ever (chocolate chip cookie baked into a brownie).
9. Rocky Sullivan's
karen bonna rainert: Friday and Saturday nights they have a fantastic lobster feast for $25. Add the roof deck and you've got yourself a great place for a summer dinner.
