The Charistmatic Megaphonic String Orchestra is an old-time string band with a modern twist. Its members are Park Slope's own Bilger family--Burkhard Bilger on guitar, Jennifer Nelson on violin and accordion, Hans Bilger (13) on stand-up bass, and Ruby Bilger (10) on vocals and percussion. Their friend and spiritual leader Michael Abrams plays ukulele and the youngest Bilger--Evangeline (5)--occasionally joins in on songs about chickens. The band plays an uproarious mixture of folk songs, novelties tunes, and rock-and-roll classics, filtered through their own sweet but slightly skewed sensibilities.

Future dates unless otherwise noted: April 8 & 22nd, May 6 & 20th, June 3 & 17th

wafels & dinges
good things belgian

The yellow wafel truck can now be found in Park Slope, Brooklyn every weekend. They park in front of Keyfood on 7th Avenue and Carroll Street. They used to come the first Saturday of each month but the wafel guys told me Park Sope loves wafels!
I tried 'Smokin' Joes pulled pork BBQ wafel' for $8.00! Wow! They made mine spicey and it was delicious. If you are ever in the Slope, stop by and treat yourself with a wafel to go!
