There are so many good reasons to join us on The Total Red Hook Immersion this weekend, starting with complimentary Brooklyn Brewery beers at The Brooklyn Ice House, Home/Made, Fort Defiance, the brand-new Botanica, and Rocky Sullivan’s. We also lined up sweet deals on food like $12 lobster rolls (normally $16) from Red Hook Lobster Pound and at stores including Metal and Thread, where you can take 25% off their signature steel mesh jewelry. And we organized an Instagram photo safari that the Red Hook residents behind Realty Collective (the event’s local business sponsor) helped us with; snap all the clues and you can win fun prizes like a bottle of Van Brunt Stillhouse rum from dry dock. Afterward, everyone’s invited to Jalopy Tavern at 4pm for $3 pints, delicious snacks, and a slideshow of the photo safari. (Did we mention that the Bayou n’ Brooklyn Cajun Music Festival is also happening this weekend at Jalopy and the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition is opening its annual exhibition on Saturday too?) To get in on the immersion action, pick up a special immersion card at Rocky’s or the Ice House starting at noon (a map is here), and RSVP on Facebook so we can send you last-minute updates!
