The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

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.

What do you think? Was Rong right to turn down the offer?

Yes,. Ugh.

We should applaud her efforts at getting a restaurant. Refried beans should be part of a food dish and not a demented coffee choice.

I like the guys from Tip of the Tongue. I'd fear that if a big, old Starbucks were to open next door, they'd be run out of the neighborhood.

Seems a little fishy to me, seems like Rong Ge's PR efforts to over-assert herself as small-biz friendly. Disclosing the actual offer amount of $13k is not standard either, something seems off about this. Time will tell!
