Try 1-800-MATTRESS

Speaking of picnic tables, last night at around 6:30 pm the Growler was trudging through the Buchanan Street Park to get to a meeting at Durant Center and passed a picnic table. It had been pulled away from the children's play area and positioned underneath a thicket of trees in a very dark area. On top of it was sprawled a young man, sans shoes, sans socks, with his T-shirt pulled up to his armpits. He appeared to be sleeping, drunk or both.

And this was in a playground immediately behind a City recreation center and an elementary school.
