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.

Who Hookas? Do You Hookah?
Ali's Roti became Buda's Hookah Lounge, 589 Flatbush near Midwood. Or perhaps it's now both in one? Hookah is something I know absolutely about, so maybe some of you can school me. Kinda like Middle Eastern cigar lounge? Different flavors, music and a lot of kibitzing? Booze? What kind? Belly Dancers? Or is that not the right term? So many questions, so little time.
