Who cares about the Goonies? Let’s Talk Food at Summerscreen – Tonight (7/31)

Pile O' Fried © Handsome Hanks

I know, I know – Cory Feldman in the 80s… but I am more interested in the food options at tonight’s Summerscreen at McCarren Park! Bring a chair and a bib.

Handsome Hanks has my kind of menu – everything and anything is fried – except the cole slaw. Fried fish, fried crab, fried shrimp. You’re going to get some kind of seafood and I can guarantee it’s going to be fried. And if that’s not enough fried – they have french fries. Hallelujah!

It’s no surprise that Landhaus’ favorite Goonies character is Chunk – they serve Grilled Maple Bacon Sticks, which were voted best Bacon in NYC by Village Voice. Quite an honor. They will also be flipping grass-fed Cheeseburgers and Lamb Burgers (with some pork back fat on it) – and of course their signature Fresh Mint Lemonade.

No surprises here but Pizza Moto and beer and a movie from when you were four makes for a great Wednesday night.

Representing Greenpoint Selamat Pagi will be focusing on their Bali Style Wings, plus vegan Lawar Salad of long beans, lime and coconut, Beef Rendang, which is spicy beef curry with pickles and rice and a Tamarind Fizz drink.

Plus you can wash all the deliciousness down with Sixpoint Brewery and City Winery.

Good appetite, Greenpoint!
