Memorial Day Weekend 2007 looks like this:
Those are horses at the end of my block. And a bale of hay. This is not your run-of-the-mill sighting in Fort Greene. But then again, neither are people on stilts.
And this — this is bliss. Fette Sau’s barbecued pulled pork, pork belly, brisket, and flank steak (which I will substitute with something fattier next time), German potato salad, broccoli salad, squishy buns, smoky baked beans, a gallon of Six Point ale, and excellent company.
I was prepared to not love Fette Sau. But now I kinda do.
Community gardens are little patches of paradise in the concrete jungle. Standing in the one at 6th Street and Avenue B is like being transported far, far away from the city. And yes, this is that garden with the crazy sculpture tower.
And because one night of porking out was not enough this weekend, I got another fix — this time, Robert’s delicious pernil.
