This past Saturday, I spent 1 hour stationed on Franklin and kept tally of how many bikes passed me by. The weather was a bitchin’ 60 degrees and the good people of Greenpoint ditched their salty snow gear for tees and floppies (flip flops, as people tend to call them).
The awesome dudes of Silk Road Cycles have donated a $70 tune-up to the lucky Greenpointer who can guess how many bikes passed on Franklin in the span of, I’ll say it again, 1 hour.
HINT: This hour occurred from 12-1pm.
Leave your answers in the comment section by this THURSDAY 5/8 at 11:59 pm and we will announce the winner (the person who comes closest to the correct number) on FRIDAY. Good luck, Greenpointers!! May the best man/woman/child win.
We have the chance to giveaway the tix anyway we like. But I like things that are easy, so if you’re interested just shoot me an email with your full name at [email protected] with the subject: Rooftop Films Giveaway and I’ll randomly choose 10 folks to win a pair each! Winners will be notified by email on Thursday 6/23 morning and their names will be on the list at the event. Details below:
Home Movies and Commerical Kings is a collection of home movie inspired short films, including a special sneak preview of IFC’s new show The Commercial Kings. Before the show, Erika Spring of Au Revoir Simone will play live. It’s being held in the brand-new-not-yet-open-to-the-public outdoor bar in Williamsburg, Crown Vic.
ROOFTOP FILMS: HOME MOVIES AND COMMERCIAL KINGS (Short Films) A special collection of short films that let us peak into the lives of strangers, plus a special sneak preview of Commercial Kings, a new series on IFC. For decades people have been making home movies; capturing what they feel are important times in their lives. Home movies are made up of personal and special moments that someone wanted to document and never forget—and most of the time they rarely get seen again. But it’s a pleasure to watch them, to peek into someone else’s life, to feel a little voyeuristic. This year’s edition of Rooftop’s “Home Movies” draws inspiration from the tradition of the home movie, building off tropes of self-documentation to create accomplished works of art, and honoring the life and death of a town, paying homage to wrestling fathers and grandfather’s unknown, and giving voice to boozy family members who make you laugh and truly scare you at the same time.
