Big Apple BBQ 2008 – June 7-8th

Big Apple BBQ 2008
Next weekend!
Madison Square Park, Manhattan – Madison Avenue Between 23rd and 26th Street
June 7-8

I always want to go to this event. They cull vendors from all over the country to provide their gracious BBQ. In the past, friends were scared off by long lines, but I will make my most valiant effort to go this year.

Prices are $8 per plate, 6 for a side, and 2 to refresh you.
I’ve heard the lines are atrocious. To bypass the lines, you can buy a Fast Pass. This is a $100 card which can be spent at the BBQ on food or merch. Sounds good if you expect to be with 3 or 4 people.
