Dinner & a show in Red Hook, Brooklyn

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...
