The Great Googa Mooga, held in Prospect Park last weekend, was billed an amusement park of food and drink with music taking a backseat to the culinary offerings of some famous New York City Eateries. There were a lot of technical and logistical difficulties at the event, including some of the vendors running out of food as well as the paid section of Googa Mooga, called Extra Mooga, running out of food completely. This week they offered refunds to those who felt they didn’t get what they paid for. I found the event to be pretty amazing and was in awe at the wonderful job all the food vendors did. Here is a look behind the scenes at the preparations.
