The Brooklyn Beefsteak is back.

That glorious celebration of beef and booze — a link to Tammany Hall politicians who invented the all-you-can-eat-and-drink beef feast to buy votes — returns to the Bell House on April 10.

Today, not much has changed — except organizers Derek Silverman and Andrew Dermont, who revived the beefsteak for Brooklyn carnivores three years ago, aren’t trying to bribe you into doing anything except having a raucous good time.

To that end, they’ll have nearly 1,000 pounds of beef, and ever-flowing pitchers of McSorley’s suds.

Adding to the jovial atmosphere will be old-timey music by the Susquehanna Industrial Tool and Die Co. Communal sing-along is mandatory (though you can sing with your mouth full, of course).

Brooklyn Beefsteak at the Bell House [149 Seventh St. between Second and Third avenues in Gowanus, (718) 643-6510], April 10, 1-4 pm and 5-8 pm. Tickets $50 per person. For info, visit
