A little bird tells the Q that his little olde wine shoppe is opening on Nostrand, not on southern Flabenue as previously reported. That's not to say that the OTHER wine shoppe up by Bluebird Cafe isn't still on. But these things take time, what with the NY State Liquor Authority and everything. But the little bird referenced in the first sentence, who isn't related to Bluebird or the wine shopppe opening near it, is opening on the same block as the world famous Alan's bakery. What along with IM Pastry and Deserts by Michael Allen and a rumored Farm to Market grocery store, Nostrand is shaping up to be the sort of place you can healthy, fat and drunk all in one fell swoop. And express yourself in ceramics with the wonderful Lindiwe Kamau.
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.
