What’s the big deal, right?

Seems like some people who hang out in Prospect Park and barbecue are ticked off.

To be honest, I never attended a barbecue in Prospect Park.  We had a mean-ass hibachi out on our fire escape.

Kingsford Charcoal and their Lighter Fluid and a whole bunch of frustration.

“STAND BACK WHEN YOU LIGHT IT!,” Mom once shouted at me.

Only thing we fired up in the Park was Christmas trees. (After Christmas, fruitcake. Residents in the area would toss their trees out on the sidewalk a week after Christmas and we would walk around the hood collecting them. We’d pile them up in the park and torch ’em)

New York Daily News with some Park Slope residents and their “beef” with the current barbecuing situation in Prospect Park.

“It’s frustrating that on our side of the park it is difficult for someone to easily find a place for a picnic,” said Matthew Howell, 31, of Prospect-Lefferts Gardens.

A PICNIC?

We played baseball in the park, ran track, cross-country, drank some booze and hung out but never had a picnic.

Yo Diane,  what’s up? How you feeling?
