Happy Memorial Day weekend, everyone! Summer has begun.
Mark and I had our pick of a couple barbecues to attend today but we opted at the last minute to have one of own.
There was a last minute run to Fairway, a large supermarket in Red Hook, Brooklyn, for supplies. There was a run to the hardware store and flower market too, which had annuals spread out on the sidewalk. Begonias, petunias, pansies and geraniums were among the flowers there.
Most people in New York don't have backyards, but there are options.
You need a permit to barbecue in Central Park, in Manhattan, but you can certainly picnic. There are areas for barbecueing in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, and some of the other State Parks.
Mark and I are lucky enough to have a small balcony for a charcoal grill. There were hot dogs, cheeseburgers, potato salad and lots of beer. After some good chit chat outside, there was an attempt at video racing games (yes, we drank and we drove).
A good time was had by all. Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!
