Grilled cheese is great comfort food, no matter if it’s incredibly cold or if things eventually someday warm up, like we think it will. And the only thing that makes comfort food more comforting is if someone just hands it to you for free, with barely any effort having to come on your part. Oh and hey, look at that, next Saturday, April 12, is National Grilled Cheese Day, and Brooklyn Slate Company is celebrating by just handing out grilled cheese.
Even better, it’s not like Brooklyn Slate (305 Van Brunt Street) is just slapping some Kraft slices on Wonder Bread and frying that up. These are gonna be serious sandwiches, with Vermont cheddar cheese and Rick’s Pickles. Because you can make your own sad greasy grilled cheese in your pajamas after you get dumped.
If you’re gonna hoof it to Red Hook, you should be rewarded with a delicious and filling grilled cheese, along with live music, which Brooklyn Slate will also have. You just need to make it there between noon and 4pm. After all, they can’t do that crap all day.
