The Red Hook ballfield vendors are back for the summer, which only means one thing: we need to get our fill of huaraches, pupusas, tacos, ceviche, elote, and agua fresca. And we want you to join us! So let's all meet up at the ballfields in Red Hook, Brooklyn, at the southeast corner of Bay and Clinton streets (see map) on Saturday, June 19. We'll be there starting at 11 a.m. but will be grazing for a good part of the afternoon. You can also get all the info and let us know you're coming on our Meetup.com page.

How to Get There?
By Subway: Closest station is the F/G at Smith & 9th Street Station. It's roughly a nine-block walk (map).
By Bus: The B61 bus in Brooklyn will take you to "Ikea Station," just a few blocks away. Head away from the water down Halleck Street; follow Halleck, taking a left as it turns into Columbia Street; bang a right on Bay, and walk until you get to Clinton (map).
By Hacking Ikea: We came up with an Ikea ferry and shuttle bus "hack." Ride the furniture store's shuttle bus or ferry out to Red Hook. But be warned; actual paying Ikea customers get preferential treatment.
