Regardless of what mother nature planned for the day, the Dekalb Market hosted their Cinco de Mayo celebration yesterday with an all-women mariachi band, lobster piƱata, all day long DJ tunes blasting and the Lobster Fiesta featuring top-line nosh by the Red Hook Lobster Pound.

I stopped by the market for the Lobster Fiesta before frolicking in the city for the rest of the day. However before feasting on the crustacean, I simply had to stop by my favorite tea purveyor, Tea by Tiffany, for something spicy!

The Red Hook Lobster Pound brought the centuries-long lobster boils tradition of Maine to the heart of Brooklyn with a south of the border twist. The crowd feasted in celebration of the return of the outdoor dining season and, most importantly, the 1862 Mexican victory over the French with a plate loaded - picante potato salad, Mexican corn on the cob, jicama coleslaw and a whole steamed Maine lobster! Needless to say it was deliciously sinful!!!! 

What a beautiful day at the Market!
