The endless summer

Here for the BK Int'l Film Fest
Friday: At Brooklyn Heights Cinema to see the world premiere of Colin Hearts Kay, one of the feature films of the Brooklyn Int'l Film Fest. Mellini from my knitting group was in it.

Saturday morning: A shrimp roll at Brooklyn Flea, then stopped by Deb's booth to say hi and check out more of her Spring/Summer 2010 pieces.  Beautiful stuff! She was sharing her booth with Virginia Galvan, a fellow Brooklynite. Organic, dainty pieces.

Saturday night: Biked out to Bed-Stuy to Brooklynite Gallery for the opening of Surface Tension. It was a lot of fun, like a backyard party with DJ Rekha and professional Indian dancers. We met Angel there and once the dancers started we inched our way up to the front.

There was a group of neighborhood teens who showed up and started dancing, and battled the dancers. It was so much fun and they were so cute! Totally stole the show. They were really fun and had a great attitude. What were you doing at thirteen? I would tear around the neighborhood with my friends and hit up the different parks where they'd hidden bottles of booze in the bushes.

I almost ate shit on the way home trying to follow Angel in between two cars. Made it back in one piece and ended the night with hot dogs and rose on the roof.

Sunday afternoon: David's rainy birthday BBQ in Williamsburg. Stopped by The Meat Hook to pick up some sausages, then walked over in the drizzle to Nick's building. I started with dessert first, a mocha cupcake topped with a chocolate-covered espresso bean from Cupcake Land. Then I narfed bratwurst and a lamb-rosemary sausage, jalapeno mac and cheese by Andrew, and then another one of our sausages, called the "Long Dong" which had jalapenos, pepperjack cheese and Texas Pete hot sauce. Whiskey and beer made me sleepy. At home now watching the Celtics kick some Laker butt!
