July 4th picnic/bbq in Prospect Park

Hey folks, let's celebrate America's birthday with a good ol' bbq/picnic in Prospect Park!!  There is a very cool bbq area just south of the bandshell, with lots of trees & areas for grilling. This event is co-hosted with the Team Awesome Meetup group.

We shall bbq, eat yummy food, play frisbee & soccer, and celebrate patriotism and all that stuff.  :)

I will bring my bbq grill, some hot dogs & hamburgers.  Everyone should bring something yummy for lunch or a dessert, and/or something to drink and cups.

I will also bring my soccerball, frisbee, and my softball & glove so if anyone else has a glove, please bring it.

The best way to get here is take the F train to the 15th Street/Prospect Park stop and walk north to the 11th Street entrance and look for us on the hill overlooking the bbq area.

So bring good food, good drinks, and good spirits!!!!!  See you all on Independence Day!!

    We're 9 now & probably open to moving to a nearby, more spacious locale if anyone has good ideas.

      Toby's Public House? Greenwood Park? Stay in the crowded Double Windsor?

    July 4, 2014

    • Dan J

      That place will be VERY crowded.

    Forecast is for rain to go away by 6:30. If that's the case, I want to play some soccer!! who's gonna kick some balls with me?

    July 4, 2014

  • Robert

    If it's raining there's nothing else we can do but get a drink a make the best of it, right? I'm sure we can kick a soccer ball in the bar. ; )

    July 4, 2014

  • Dan J

    Yep, plans changed. Meet at Double Windsor at 3 pm. 16th St. and Prospect Park West. They have great food and drinks. USA!!!! :)

    If we meet at the bar will that be the only thing going on or will we go elsewhere? I was hoping to come to the picnic but might go elsewhere if its just the DW. There's some pig roasts going on!

    July 4, 2014

    • Dan J

      Well, if it is raining, the bar may be the only activity. I'll have to leave at 8 anyways since I fly tomorrow, but other folks may move on to another location.

      July 4, 2014

  • Dan J

    OK, so if the forecast stays as it is for 100% chance of rain in the afternoon, we will meet at Double Windsor bar/restaurant at 3. Its on 16th St. and Prospect Park West. http://www.dwbrooklyn.com/. But I'll still bring the soccer ball, just in case. :)

    July 4, 2014

  • Dan J

    UPDATE: weather forecast is not in our favor. It says 100% chance of rain at 4 pm. I'll make a decision whether we will go to the bar instead, soon.

    July 4, 2014

  • Dan J

    OK folks, any alternative suggestions if this thing gets rained out? Maybe go to the German Beerhall on St. Marks Place and 4th Ave? They have tons of beers and great food.

    July 3, 2014

    • Eric B.

      well, im not completely sure about my plans for tomorrow yet. how late will u guys b out or at the bar? if i dont show up early, i might catch up later. but if not, i wish everyone a Happy and safe 4th of July!!!! and i will see you'll again soon! Peace and God bless always. Happy 4th!!

      July 3, 2014

    • Dan J

      I may have a flight tomorrow to Nova Scotia, so I'll probably be leaving around 8 or so. But Im sure other crazy cats will stay much longer than I. :)

  • Ian C.

    Are we allowed to bring beer at the park?
