Wednesday Night in Williamsburg: The L Magazine's SummerScreen presents "Labyrinth" at the McCarren Park Ballfields
We went to this season's opener of The L Magazine's Wednesday night SummerScreen and we were at the closing movie tonight, Labyrinth, moseying over around 8:30 p.m.
As you can see, it was very scary.
We'd seen this movie at a relative's house on cable TV (which we don't have) and it frankly bored us. But we were happy to get out of the house, and it's nice to live in Williamsburg, where there's always something doing at any hour.
Obviously it was too dark for us to get any pics that look like anything. Can you tell which of these food stands is Asia Dog and which is San Loco?
McCarren Park was jumping with people jumping, playing volleyball and soccer, sitting on benches conversing in Polish and Spanish, even walking tightropes while they spoke French.
There was an after-party at Pete's Candy Store but our photo from the Lorimer Street window came out looking like a Ad Reinhardt painting. On the other hand, we could see someone getting their hair done at Graceland.
It's never too late to get a tattoo, either.
We passed our own block to head down to the hubbub of Metropolitan Avenue and the awesome Goods food trailer. We're so glad that crappy vacant lot is gone.
When we were sitting on our stoop drinking our non-alcoholic, non-caffeinated drink, a young couple came by, and looking at our house and the two matching ones on either side, the woman said to the man, "These are beautiful." We think so too. It was a nice night.
