It's now so easy being green!

Brooklyn, NY: Food-
Yesterday I got the urge to travel. I packed a bag, grabbed my passport and headed out to Fort Greene, Brooklyn for the afternoon.
I met my brother Jeff for a late lunch, it was actually about 5pm, but sometimes that still counts as lunch in New York. You folks who often find yourselves at a 24hr diner or deli at 2am know what I'm talking about... Not only is my brother Jeff Walloch an awesome guy to be related to, he's also a truly gifted photographer.
We walked down Fulton Street enjoying the sun and happened upon Habana Outpost - 755-757 Fulton Street Brooklyn.

We wanted a place to sit outside and enjoy the weather and this seemed perfect. The food was delicious! We both had The Grilled Corn Mexican Style, The Chicken Diablo Sandwich and a drink for about $10. With great company, an affordable menu and such wonderful food, what more could ya ask for?
Habana Outpost has so much more! What makes Habana Outpost really special is that it is New York City's first solar-powered restaurant and market. Open from May 21, 2005 until Halloween there will be an outdoor market with local up-and-coming artists, merchants and underground designers selling their wares.
At Habana Outpost food wastes are composted, paper materials used are post-consumer waste recycled material, soaps are one hundred percent biodegradable, non-toxic, phosphate free, never tested on animals, and they use bio plastics which are biodegradable and will be included in their food waste composting program. This is a great place to access neighborhood talents, support local economies and go Green! So visit Brooklyn, it's not so far and may-be I'll see you there.
