Yeah! Schumer Back Red Hook Vendors!

Now, this is news to end a week by!

Sen. Charles Schumer will tomorrow, June 9, speak at the Red Hook ballfields, denounced the Parks Commissioner's attempt to open concessions at the fields to bidding and thus potentially shove the longstanding and much-beloved food vendors now there out of the picture.

According to Eater.com, "Schumer will be joined by Cesar Fuentes, President of the Food Vendors of Red Hook, Assemblyman Felix Ortiz, food historian Ed Levine and area chefs." And check out these cool testimonials by those area chefs here.

Schumer has my vote from here on in. This is a New York pol who knows what's what.

There is hope. Life is good. That sinking feeling is abating—a bit.

The time is 1 PM. Be there.
