Big daddy of food festivals the Great GoogaMooga beats its belly at Prospect Park from May 17 through May 19. While event highlights include a discussion on food porn and a Flaming Lips performance, let's direct our lips to the food, shall we? Highlights include porky melts from Pork Slope, oysters bolognese from M. Wells, and a snail paella from Boston-based Toro (which will open in New York in May or June). With a whopping 80 or so food vendors on Googa grounds, an eat-inerary is necessary. Luckily, we've got a list of what everyone's serving so you can allocate your stomach space accordingly.
