It’s been a long week, Greenpoint Gallery Night is happening tonight (3/20) from 7-10PM, and Montell Jordan is on my mind singing:
♫ It’s Friday night, and I feel all right
The party is here on the North Side
Hit the shore ‘cause I’m faded
Honeys in the street say, “Greenpoint, yo we made it!”
It feels so good in my hood tonight
The gallery art and the beer that’s so cold
All the cool hipsters forgot about the spring-snow
To all my neighbors you got much flavor
(This is how we do it) ♫
