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.

Slim Jim's To Open By July

Okay, it won't be called that. But it's also not gonna be called DJ Oyster either, a name that was panned on this here blog when it first became public. I like Slim Jim's, after it's location across from Phat Albert's and the name of its proprietor Jim Mamary. But hey, I'm not footing the bill. That stretch of the Flabenue does need a little good clean fun. And owner Mamary confirmed that he plans to open by the end of June. (The Q has noted that proprietor's are often ambitious in the calendars, so take it with a grain of gourmet sel de mar.

Let her rip, Jim. I know a lot of folks who are looking for your new joint to rock our socks off.
