The other day

I met my tour guide

friend 

Brian Hoffman

at Carroll Park in

Brooklyn.

He is a tour guide with

Urban Oyster Tours

http://www.urbanoyster.com/

I was to be part of

a promo for their

New York Brewery Tour

I have taken it twice

Each tour includes visits to

4 different breweries, lunch,

and ample tastings of beer.

Bar Great Harry 

is located at 280 Smith Street, 

Carroll Gardens Brooklyn.  

They have 20 

rotating draft lines, 

1 hand pulled cask, 

and about 30 bottles.

"Brooklyn's third-oldest park is

named for Charles Carroll (1737-1832),

an American Revolutionary leader and

signer of the Declaration of Independence,

for whom Carroll Street is also named.

He served in the Continental Congress

from 1776-78 and represented

Maryland in the Senate from 1789-92.

Carroll Gardens is 

named for Charles Carroll, 

the only Roman Catholic 

signer of the 

Declaration of Independence. 

At one point it was an

Italian-American with neighborhood of

family-run stores.

Now it is sprinkled with cafes,

boutiques and

antique shops

Prior to the

gentrification movement

in the mid-1960s,

this part of South Brooklyn

was considered by residents

to be part of Red Hook.

Extra Place?

This is an odd

little alley

on 1st street between

Bowery and 2nd Ave.

A few days ago

I returned to

DBGB Kitchen and Bar

Chef Daniel Boulud’s downtown,

French brasserie/American tavern.

The other day a friend

posted a picture on Facebook

of possibly the best

looking focaccia

I have ever seen.

It was from

Angelo's Pizza and Restaurant
