You may not be able to get to Red Hook by train, but you sure can visit this waterfront neighborhood by bike. And that’s just what a whole group of folks did earlier this month. The once forgotten part of Brooklyn is now a hub for artists and artisans alike. We led a parade of bicycles through the quaint cobblestone streets to spend time with some of our favorite Red Hook producers. At Cacao Prieto
we got the full story about where their ingredients come from as we nibbled on their velvety dark chocolate. Then at Red Hook Winery
we sipped on our samples while we marveled at their brand new winery, barrel room, and tasting room right on the waterfront! Complete with a beautiful view of Lady Liberty.
Come join us for the Red Hook Ride this whole summer, the first Saturday of every month. The next ride is August 4. Tickets are $15 and get you in on an extra special tour and tasting of both Cacao Prieto and Red Hook Winery. Expect good people, bursts of local pride, and the cool breeze in your hair. Spots are limited so sign up to save your place
