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.

Tafari Tribe Moving Next Door

The Q's certain you were as shocked as he to see that Tafari Tribe's longtime home on the Flabenue has shuttered. Here's the Q talking to and about Sandra, owner of the Tribe, a few years back.

Turns out she's moving next door to the space she built out and called Tafari Cafe, though it never actually opened as a cafe. It WAS used for many private events, and of course the wonderful pop-up shop that I profiled awhile back. Inside intel says the move was prompted, in part, by the landlord, though it's clear that without an unlimited bankroll it's simply not possible to maintain a 2nd shop with nearly 0 cash flow! It's a shame about the cafe...there was a lot of excitement there for a world-themed coffee house.

Here's hoping that all's well that ends well.
