Its finally here, the weekend my husband and I dream about all year. June 12-13 marks the 8th annual Big Apple BBQ Block Party in Manhattan's Madison Square Park! What? You've never heard of this weekend of beautiful gluttony? Oh, I shall explain then...
The lines are super long, as you can imagine, so we've purchased a Fast Pass for 3 years running which allows us to get on the shorter VIP lines and gives us $100 of food (yes, we can eat that much!). And because this will be our first year bringing Andrew to the festival, I've already started strategizing which stalls we'll hit first. Oh, who am I kidding--I strategized last year too!
If you're in the NYC area, a good tip is to bring a blanket and/or camp chairs and your own drinks to save all your money for the 'cue. Also, if you need a bathroom, there are pay bathrooms around the park, but you can also try using the bathrooms at Best Buy or Home Depot on 23rd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues.
Well, I better get to work packing our picnic gear and the baby's diaper bag. We're headed out nice and early. Hope you can make it there if you're in the area!
