RE: Long Island bound from Minneapolis
Yeah, Andy, I actually live in Brooklyn. Never been to the land of Billy Joel. I'm just trying to make crbmn feel good about going there. In any event, Brooklyn's on your way. Make a stop. Every culture is represented with fine culinary delights. On Flatbush Ave. near Park Slope, there's a local Jamaican favorite called Christie's Bakery. Along with the Jamaican bakery standbys like currant roll, coconut turnover, and beef patties, they also have a full kitchen serving meals like oxtails, curry goat, and jerk chicken. Extremely spicy but somehow refreshing on a warm summer day. Brooklyn tour buses stop at this place.
