If you find yourself in the out of the way hipster enclave of Red Hook Brooklyn this Sunday night, why not treat yourself to a dinner and a show?
Stop by our buddies at the acclaimed Good Fork restaurant on Van Brunt and tell 'em we sent you. They'll hook you up with a tasty FREE dessert ( and i can vouch for a blood orange margarita to wash it down with) and some Bloodshot swag before you head over to see Luke Winslow-King at the Jalopy Theater later that night.
Sounds like a classy evening all the way around. Real class. Don Draper class...
