Brooklyn Crab Will Feature Free Subway Shuttle

Brooklyn Crab, almost finished 
Yeah, the shuttle to those Ikea meatballs is all well and good, but if we're going to Red Hook, we think we'd prefer to get on the tram run by Brooklyn Crab, because how can you argue with all that beer and seafood? The restaurant, run by the folks behind Mexican favorite Alma, haven't announced an official opening date (though it would be awesome to stop by over the upcoming three-day weekend, just-sayin'), but they did just announce that a special shuttle will carry people back and forth to the subway once they are up and running.

Red Hook is certainly an up-and-coming area, but it's easy to see why this eatery will want to drive people over. They've got two stories to fill and it's a bit of a trek from the nearest station, so if the views of New York Harbor aren't enough, maybe a free ride will be. Details aren't 100% clear at this point, but the tram will pick people up at the Carroll Street subway station and run between 6:00 PM and 10:00 PM Sunday through Thursday and 6:00-11:00 PM on Fridays and Saturdays. Manhattanites can also reach the crab shack by jumping on the Ikea Water Taxi and walking a few blocks once they disembark.

If that's not enough to lure you over - how about some mini golf? 18 holes of putt-putt will follow soon after the joint's opening. Suh-weet. Stay tuned to their Twitter feed for updates (24 Reed Street).
