AGREED that it's probably too crowded.
Plus, plates of BBQ sell for $8.00, so they're not exactly giving the stuff away, anyway.
Better off going to a few of the BBQ joints on your own, and not fighting the crowds.
I stumbled on this "Taste of Times Square" while in NYC on Monday. It was on 46th st, between 8th and 9th ave. Got elbowed a few times , too crowded!
I was there last year for it, (actually scheduled my trip into NYC for it), but did'nt even realize it was going on again this year.
Boy, time sure flies!
Prices are reasonable enough, but the lines are so long to buy the "ticket" script.
So, it was a bit frustrating, as I fought the crowds to get close to the food, but did'nt have tickets for any of it! (had to be satisfied with "visual satisfaction"!)
