What is a Trip to Brooklyn without visiting Smorgasburg?

So we loaded up the double wide stroller for the dogs. I got my Man-Bun looking tight and we headed across the bridge to visit Prospect Park. Not sure what I am talking about? Consider a food truck rodeo/street fair but it is only food vendors selling their offerings.

Oh and it was probably 100 tents set up in the middle of Prospect Park! One could bring the family, a blanket, smuggle in a bottle of wine (not that I condone that type of behavior) and spend the afternoon eating their asses off. We walked around the circle once and determined that we needed some grease in our systems considering last nights debauchery. What is neat about Smorgasburg is that they are pretty vigilant about recycling and trash. Nobody sells plastic bottled water, they have paper cups instead. No Styrofoam containers, all the food containers are either that hard paper boxes or I saw a lot of people drinking drinks out of pineapples which was cool.

Probably the wildest was the native country food offerings here. Sadly there wasn’t a Pronto Pup or Funnel Cake vendor in the mix but we saw lots of food stalls that you see typically on Anthony Bourdain or Andrew Zimmer travel shows. Next time when I am not suffering from MPH we will have to give them a whirl.

IMG_2894Like I have always said, if you see a huge ass line for a food vendor you go stand in it because it has to be good.

IMG_2892Very interesting to see them make this. Hey Gardo and Boo you guys are over there what is the deal with this and why is it so popular?

IMG_2895Hey I know what that means! Melted Cheese on things

IMG_2896If the Damn Neighbor were here she would have put up a chair right here and given them a credit card saying “Keep it coming!”

IMG_2891What a lovely day for a picnic I could only imagine how Maddy and Maya would have hated it.

IMG_2890Rolling Luggage at Smorgasburg? You guys are serious about eating some food aren’t you?

I would be remiss to say that the longest lines were for BBQ tents. I guess they love that Brooklyn BBQ scene up here.
