Last weekend, it was Maple II. Great job guys...mellow, friendly, like the block itself. Ageless cover rock band Bangstrum was there nailing the Doobies (the band) and it felt like one of the true first days of summer.
This weekend, it's Rutland I, and they always throw down. Proceeds benefit the Lefferts Montessori. Stoop sale, a krazy kool raffle, that knife sharpening guy, a bouncy house (remember not to get your knives too close to the inflatable bouncy house), I'm telling you this is among the best BPs of the summer.
The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.
