alt.Brooklyn.Valentine w/ Red Hook Lobster Pound, Dry Dock, and more....

Red Hook Lobster Pound has been circulating the following email in promotion of this great upcoming special:

Show some real love by cooking up some of the best that the local Brooklyn food purveyors have to offer.

Seafood has long been considered an aphrodisiac, a belief that can be traced back to the ancient Greeks who believed their goddess of love Aphrodite was born of the sea, and that the ocean's creatures were her playmates in the game of love, and gosh, lobster is the king of seafood and The Meat Hook has the sexiest meat and butchers around. Combine that with the briny flavor of Rick's Picks, the sultry sea salt caramels from the vixens at Liddabit Sweets, all topped off with a trip to the best new wine store on the block, Dry Dock Wines, and woken up the next am with a delicious and socially responsible cup of coffee and we say that you have a guaranteed full-on night/morning of whoopee.
