It looks like all of that Lobster Pound-ing has finally caught up to Red Hook, 'cause it officially has crabs… at the massive waterfront shanty complex sneakily named Brooklyn Crab! And because you don't get crabs by playing it safe, they've gone beyond just loading their three floors with the usual claw & hammer adornments (lobster traps, giant shark heads…), spreading the crustacean crackin' to a backyard complete with crab-boil-worthy outdoor activities. Feast upon the details:
Entertainment: There're more games to partake in than one could accomplish even with eight spiny arms, but feel free to stage a Lawn Sport Olympics using their bocce courts, real-deal shuffleboard, ping pong tables, cornhole sets, and full-on 18-hole mini golf course, which should get you ready to fill your hole with…
Drinks: Drench yourself in brews from Sixpoint, Troegs, and Smuttynose poured from two bars, one on the indoor/outdoor second floor, the other on the upper deck, undoubtedly far superior to whatever's being served on the Donruss.
Eats: It's like the Atlantic Ocean threw a party, then decided to kick everyone out right into your friggin' mouth, with buckets piled high with Blue, Jonah, and King crabs, whole lobsters, fried stuff galore (calamari! oysters! clams!), and Blue Points and Little Necks dropped onto "Cool" or "Supercool" platters from the raw bar, though as Red Hook can tell you, it's always supercool to go raw.
