City Rag tipped us off to another annual NYC barbecue event. Gothamist has attended the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party this year and last year, but we haven't yet made it to BBQ NYC, which was held on July 24th in Flushing Meadows Park. City Rag was able to interview the founder of the event, Travis Mills, and take some mouthwatering pictures which makes us even more sad that we weren't there. We'll be sure to go next year, thanks to CityRag's following tips:
- go to the official website for information on how to attend and to get on the mailing list BBQ-NYC.com (and there will be pix and updates about the event there in the coming days)
- the picnic is open to everyone on a first come basis (you must sign-up in advance. the picnic sells out very quickly and no walk-ins are accepted)
- a wonderful, funny and info packed email goes out to all attendees before the picnic that includes every bit of information you need!
