Red Hook Ball Fields

Does anyone know if they're going to manage to open up the stands at the Red Hook fields this weekend? I don't see anything on the myspace site, but I'm contactless today and easily distracted....

Underberg bitters

Does anyone know where to get these little bottles of bitters in New York? They're from Germany. I love all varieties of bitters in general, but I was intrigued by these after reading about them in a recent New Yorker article about hangovers:

You don't just splash these in a glass of seltzer or tonic water. You drink the entire little bottle.

After reading the same article, I need to at least try Irn-Bru and Bovril, too.

My actual craving is for Creole Cream Cheese...

but I want to make my own. Where might one find rennet in New York City, preferably Manhattan?

Recipe linked below for anyone curious. We're doing a creole Christmas this year, and it's sparked an interest in all things creole.

Corn husks in Manhattan

I thought I'd answer my own question, in case anyone else wants to make tamales - the teeny tiny Zaragoza Mexican grocery has plenty of them on the corner of Avenue A and 13th street. They also have dirt cheap and very tasty homemade Mexican food and are really friendly folks.

Corn husks in Manhattan

Hi folks. I'm making 50 or so tamales this evening and am having trouble finding husks in Manhattan. Kalustyan's had only a handful, but I am using their delicious house brand of masa harina. Can anyone recommend a place to get a LOT of corn husks in the city?

Thanks.

Unpitted prunes

Hi folks. Quick question: Does anyone know where to get unpitted prunes in New York? A friend needs them for a recipe. I seem to recall a couple of different places folks have discussed here in Brooklyn that seem like they might be possibilities but whose names I've forgotten. Anyone seen them in Manhattan?
