red hook soccer fields: end of the season celebration....

The end-of-the-season/Independence Day Celebration is this saturday at the fields, 11am till sundown-ish.

In addition to the usual great eats, there will be a DJ, live music, clowns (?!), and a special soccer tournament. Should be even livelier than usual; and after this, things begin to wind down....until next spring, of course...

  1. Thanks for posting this. I will definitely be there!

    1. Perfect!

      Which item would you consider a "can't miss?" If you had to choose just one.

      We plan to do some sampling but definitely won't be able to try everything.

        The huaraches are amazing. As is the ceviche. And you have to get some corn.

          Ceviche mixto!! And a meat and cheese pupusa with the slaw.

        2. Crap. The weekend I go out of town....

          Are there any restaurants or delis associated with the vendors--somewhere I can go year round and get my fix?

            Yes, In particular I dream about the huraches sold at the Martinez stand... do they have a restaurant?
            Otherwise I have to wait until spring again.

              I have not been to the ballfields but have read the continuous posts about them. My huarache heaven is Matamoros Bodega on Bedford in Bill Burg. Have you had them there? If so how do they match up with Martinez? If you can't locate martinez then Matamoros might get you through the winter. I should make the effort to get to the fields to try the offerings.

              i hope they made him look bad (not too hard!). and i am happy for the vendors since it will give them more publicity = more money. Last sunday there was a good crowd but certainly no evidence of the place being swamped by Times readers.

            2. Porkchop,

              What do you mean by "wind down"? Are the food vendors shutting down after Saturday?

              Love your blog.
