A Grand Slam for Grand Street

Scattered showers didn’t stop backyard grilling connoisseurs from feasting at the first annual Grand Slam BBQ Battle Music and Food Festival [last Sunday]. More than just bands, beer and beef, the event also marked the neighborhood’s formal introduction to the Grand Street Alliance (GSA), an organization dedicated to developing and supporting small businesses in Williamsburg.

GSA did an amazing job with this event. The food was fantastic, the whole thing was really well run, and by the next morning, the street was nearly spotless. Good start for this organization.
