New York is a fat kid’s dream. There are pizza places and bagel shops every 1.5 blocks, as well as trucks waiting for you on the sidewalk when you suddenly crave a chocolate crossiant or flaffel. Normally, it’s totally worth walking a few extra blocks to find an ice cream truck, so you can chase your fish tacos with a cherry dip cone. But today is Memorial Day, a holiday better celebrated with stationary outdoor gluttony. Sure, you can go to a barbecue. But if you’re craving more snack served from transportation in your life, head down to The Brooklyn Yard for Parked, the Gowanus Food Truck Festival. Instead of covering five or more blocks so you can get key lime pie and your friend can scarf on some dumplings, you’ll just have to wander through a grassy lot!

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
