August 1st and you haven't had a bbq yet? What are you waiting for?! First you will need some bug spray, especially if you bbq in the park or my back yard! Susan from Naturally Susans is selling her all natural bug spray online and at Celebrate Brooklyn in Prospect Park.
So now that you aren't going to attract any mosquitoes you may want to attract a new friend. I love lobsters. Lobster prints, lobster salad, steamed lobster so of course I love this bow tie. If I wasn't married I definitely would be attracted to a guy wearing a lobster bow tie!
And if you don't know how to tie a bow tie don't worry, Minerva Knits will send you instructions. Talk about service!
Ok so you have your bug spray, you have a cool bow tie to wear, what are you going to bring? Instead of stopping at the local bodega and picking up a six pack how about doing something different? This is New York after all. Brooklyn DIY has the most unique gift you can bring to a BBQ or any party. Party goers will be so impressed when you show up with homemade mustard. And bring a kit for the host.
Now get on your bicycle or your Citi-bike and get to the bbq! And if you don't have a bike you can wear one around your neck!
Have a great BBQ!
