Who you calling stinky? The goodly neighborhood folk in Carroll Gardens should take cover, as the South Brooklyn Smith Street Fun Day Sunday rolls through the Bugaboo-loving streets. Precious apple-cheeked families, lots of I-can’t-believe-how-expensive-the-neighborhood- is-getting grousing, and—for us—the highlight of the festivities: the Stinky Bklyn first annual cheese-eating contest (finally!). Twenty contestants will have one minute to eat as much Cantal cheese as possible. Watch one of those cuddly Safran Foer punks enter the contest and get a $500,000 book deal to write about it.
[South Brooklyn Smith Street Fun Day Sunday, Smith Street between Union and Bergen, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.]
