ABC’s Pan Am Pilot Being Filmed in Cobble Hill

By , 1 September, 2011, No Comment

Walking down Clinton St. yesterday with my kids (around Degraw St.), we suddenly came upon the set of ABC’s new period drama, Pan Am. When a nice young man with a headset asked us to stop as they filmed a scene, my son eagerly ogled the classic cars littering the street. At which time, said man with headset smirked and told us how they stalled out in the middle of the street every five minutes. Oh well. The show premiers in the fall starring Christina Ricci and according to the NY Times, the pilot cost $10 million to shoot.

Red Hook Music Festival at Urban Meadow

By , 23 August, 2011, 1 Comment

All-you-can-eat hot dogs and live music sound like a good combo. Even better when it’s right in your backyard. Or, more succinctly, at the Urban Meadow on President between Columbia and Van Brunt St. So come on down this Sunday, 28 August, to the Red Hook Music Festival presented by Red Hook Star-Revue, and check out bands including The Middle Eight, Union and the Amanda Cole Quintet. Your $10 donation will include food and drink, but better hide that six pack, no booze allowed in this public park.

I am also intrigued with the scenes you make and how you worded your deed. It about felt like a time hearing, however - it was all far white and essentially strong way.

Fondue Joint to Open in Carroll Gardens

By , 1 August, 2011, No Comment

It may be the middle of summer, but come cooler weather, you’ll inevitably be ready to move from cold beer and mojitos to well-mixed cocktails and comfort food. To help you prepare for this seasonal change, the second location of Gallic-leaning East Village cocktail and fondue den Bourgeois Pig is preparing for an October grand opening. According to Grub Street, the former red-velvet clad Calpurnia Wine Bar (287 Court at First Place) will be transformed into a Euro-style lounge focusing on bitters. Expect 40 seats inside, 20 seats outside, and a “daily-changing menu with rotating offerings that might include a lobster bisque or a dark-chocolate-bacon-beer fondue.” Of course, until then (and after), you can still get your fondue fix at JakeWalk (282 Smith St.), like the gooey 5 yr. cheddar & cave-aged Swiss with apples,
salami & bread for two, just $16.

Hey, Hey! The Monkees Rock Coney Island

By , 19 July, 2011, No Comment

Does the opening chords of Daydream Believer encourage you to bang a tambourine and weave flowers in your hair? Were you secretly rooting for Davy Jones to totally dis Marcia’s prom on the Brady Bunch? Well, take the Last Train to Clarksville (I imagine it must be in Brooklyn) and head to Coney Island Thursday night for the 33rd annual Seaside Summer Concert Series, featuring The Monkees (Special Guest MC Jay Black). The boys haven’t had the band back together in 10 years, so you may want to take advantage of the free concert at West 21st Street and Surf Avenue at 7:30pm. The public is encouraged to bring their own chairs, though a limited number of $5 rental chairs in a specially designated area are available on a first-come first-served basis.

Teenage Girls Storm Brooklyn Heights Gossip Girl Set

By , 19 July, 2011, No Comment

As I was walking up Atlantic Ave. today, from Henry to Court St., I was met with the all too familiar scene of trailers, heavy duty lighting and frantic underlings skittering about with headphones. And then I noticed something you don’t see with every production in the neighborhood–a gaggle of teenage girls with cameras standing around impatiently in the 90+ degree heat. Hmmm, what could bring so many young ladies with braces and short, denim skirts to the brow-beating heat of Atlantic Ave. in the middle of a Tuesday afternoon? Why, Gossip Girl, of course. I assume those feisty upper east-siders were slumming it here while filming in the Waterfall Cafe (maybe falafel really is sexier than we thought), but it looks like today is the last day those massive trailers take up coveted parking spots. XOXO, Bococaland.
