For the past eight years, Madison Square Park hosts a barbecue-filled weekend and this year was no different. I spent the morning apartment shopping for my brother in the west village (for him), then we headed to the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party. I was shocked that I hadn’t heard anything about it considering I work 3 blocks from the park. Barbecue restaurants from around the country lined the outskirts of the park and offered bbq galore. I had sandwiches from two different places and each was amazing. It’s still going on today so if you haven’t checked it out, definitely head on over!
