I'm a graduating college student and my family and friends are coming to Pittsburgh in May. Instead of a traditional graduation dinner, I want to have a barbeque BBQ in one of Pittsburgh's amazing public parks. In order to get a grill and picnic table you have to make a reservation. The shocking thing is that the cheapest reservation is $150!!! This is absolutely ludicrous but I really want to have a BBQ!
I don't have money or time to invest in buying my own grill and table and a picnic blanket is not an option. Is this $150 really the truth? Is there another alternative or other green space where there are grills and I can still barbeque with my family?
