I wanted to cook my kid some brisket, and I realized that I could get some meat at Fairway and I could do it first thing in the morning and put it in the slow cooker all day and it would be ready for us at night. So I dashed down to Red Hook at 7 AM, thinking Fairway was already open, but it opens at 8, so I got a surprise morning walk/run all to myself on the empty streets of Red Hook. My love affair continues. (I am especially proud of this first photo, which is a mini-golf course as seen through the slat in a weathered wooden fence.) Also, dinner at the end of the day with my kid? Delicious all around.
