Bees normally freak my shit out. But these red ones are kinda cute, right?
Apparently there's a whole gigantic mess of em flying around Red Hook. An amateur Bee Keeper named (rather ironically) Cerise Mayo, couldn't figure out wtf was going on with her bees that were making him look so fiery. Then she figured it out: they were getting drunk on cherry juice!
No, this isn't the the new Four Loko kids, so no need to google. Mayo's hives are not too far away from Dell’s Maraschino Cherries factory on Dikeman Street. And apparently the bees have been ducking out at all hours of the day and night to go get lit on all that sugary, red, delcious syrup used to make maraschino cherries. And now their honey is all red too!
Which sounds cute, but only it's not. Cause that shit was loaded up with more Red Dye No. 40 than a red M&M in 1972. Oopsie.
