RED HOOK – The first-ever Tastes of Brooklyn Red Hook Food & Drink Crawl will debut on Sunday, July 28, inviting locals to sample the array of culinary options the historic waterfront neighborhood has to offer.

As always, proceeds from the Crawl will support Seeds in the Middle, a non-profit organization working to empower youth in central Brooklyn with the Hip2B Healthy program. The event will also support the Red Hook Art Project, a non-profit organization that provides free art and music programs as well as academic and stress management instruction to kids in Red Hook.
A youth-run Hip2B Healthy Market will offer juices and smoothies during the Red Hook Crawl, and there will be art exhibits as well as soccer and other activities for kids throughout the day. Sunny’s Bar will feature live music starting at 5pm.
Coming this fall, Tastes of Brooklyn will introduce two new neighborhood food crawls in the Columbia Street Waterfront District and Prospect-Lefferts Gardens.
