This triangulated love affairs between Park Slope, the Wafels & Dinges truck and myself is not coming to an end any time soon.
Our next third trip to Park Slope is coming up this Saturday, February 7. We will arrive at 7th Avenue and Carroll Street around 11 am, and if all goes well, we'll be there till 7 pm. So far for the practicalities. Let's get to the love-affair.
What is it that makes Brooklynites so passionate about Belgian waffles? Just a few weeks ago, out of nowhere, strange things started happening. First, some people started floating the rumor that Marty Markowitz would come by the truck. Before we knew it, we're talking to Marty's office to confirm that Brooklyn's borough president is effectively showing up at the waffle truck this Saturday at 2 pm. We're sure Marty would love nothing more than eating a waffle in the company of fellow Brooklynites, so be there - 2 pm, and have a party! But that's not all...
Now, we've also heared rumors that Channel 12 may be coming down to 7th Avenue to report on the third visit of the waffle truck...they were not sure yet though. So if you want to be seen on the evening news waving waffles at mom and dad...this is your chance.
Did I mention Brooklynites are nuts about waffles. Let's just look at some proof of that. A few days ago, we received an email from a certain Katherine. It went like this:
"Dear Thomas, My name is Katherine and I am a friend of Cynthia - the sweet charismatic lady who talked you into Park Slope venue. She was kind enough to mention this god's work to me and, being a waffle fan as well, I felt this was a worthy cause to put my energy in as well. I suggested to design a few invite cards (4x6 may be) to spread the word through our fair grounds of your coming. I thought the designs can be different in nature to appeal as many viewers as possible. Cynthia loved the idea and suggested I contacted you as soon as possible."
Her designs were awesome (look for yourself). Did I just say Brooklynites are nuts about waffles? Katherine, Cindy - a big thank you...I still can't believe you gals pulled this together. We are arranging a special audience by his Royal Highness King Albert II.
