I went to the Prospect Park office on Friday to get a permit for my June 26 Kimchi Contest.
At first I wasn’t going to get a permit because you only need one if you have more than 25 people at your picnic. I wasn’t sure how many people would come to the contest, and although the permit is only $25 I wanted to save some money. : )
But on Thursday I contacted the park office, and the park person told me I was too late to get a permit, because there was a waiting list of 40 people for the best spots! I couldn’t change the date, so I asked her what I should do. She told me to come in the next day and she would see what she could do. She said if my group is too big and I don’t have a permit, someone with a permit could call the police and make me leave. I couldn’t sleep all night.
Early morning Friday I went to Prospect Park and talked to the woman. She had 2 spots left, one with a BBQ pit and one without. Without hesitating I chose the one with the BBQ pit.
I gave her one of the Maangchi stickers I keep with me. This sticker has a picture of me with a pink wig from my egg plant side dish (gajinamul) video.
She recognized me from my sticker! She said: “I know you!”
Now, everything went smoothly. “Your permit will be mailed to you in 2 weeks.”
“What’s your name?” I asked. “Dignity”, she said. It didn’t sound like a name to me. So I asked again, “I’m sorry, what’s your name?” and she told me Dignity again. : )
Dignity and me
So I walked through the park to check out our spot. Prospect Park is so beautiful, I saw the lake, and geese and turtles.
Can you see the cute turtles?
This trip to Prospect Park was very fruitful, and I have new information about the Kimchi Contest! Check back to my original post to read the updates!
