Eat, Drink and Be Merry, Brooklyn-Style

In the borough of Kings, there are many ways to laze away a summer day; Parks, beaches and air-conditioned movie theaters are great places to stay cool. But for foodies, there are a plethora of places to go to eat, drink and be merry around Brooklyn, including: 

The Red Hook Latino food vendors are up and running again (finally!) this year, serving some of the best – and cheapest – food around. 

Brooklyn Brewery has Friday happy hours and Saturday tasting tours so you can learn about beer as you imbibe it. 

Coney Island offers fun in the sun, especially with the recent opening of Beer Island, a BBQ and beer joint. 

You can get your Chinese food on in Brooklyn’s Chinatown.  

Or if you prefer to dine in rather than eat out, stay home and whip up something tasty from one of BPL's many cookbooks. You can even make your own Brooklyn-inspried dishes by borrowing a title featuring Brooklyn's best recipes.

Do you have other ideas/suggestions of where to go for good grub this weekend? Then tell us about them!
