Trade Blood for Blood Sausage at the Meat Hook

What'll those crazy kids at the Meat Hook and Brooklyn Kitchen think of next?! Today's outrageous news concerns a blood drive the butcher and kitchen store is hosting this Saturday from noon to 4:30 p.m. (overlapping with brunch hours), where everyone who donates blood gets to take home a free blood sausage! (Vegetarians can choose a free pound of beans, blah.) We feel a bit queasy at the thought of this pairing, but hey, it's for a good cause. However, if they offer you some morcilla a few days after the blood drive, we say don't accept it.
