Big Apple BBQ

Barbecue Block Party in Madison Square Park

Head to Madison Square Park for the 11th edition of this smoked- and grilled-meat blowout. Top pit masters from restaurants all over the country—including Blue Smoke, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, Texas’s famed Salt Lick and more—will dish out exceptional ’cue for $9 a plate. Live music from bluesy songstress Marcia Ball (June 8) and rootsy rockers the Dirty Guv’nahs (June 9) will accompany the gluttony. FastPasses (which grant you $100 to spend and access to express lines for two eaters) sold out quickly last year, so plan ahead if you want to skip the queue.

Location: E 23rd St to E 26th St, Gramercy & Flatiron, New York, between Fifth and Madison Aves
