Photo Diary: Memorial Day Weekend
Long weekends always go so fast. This Memorial Weekend was a good one. It all really started Friday night watching our neighborhood slowly become a Hollywood set. They filmed Men in Black 3 (no Will Smith sadly) in the hood and transformed it to look like 1969 with old cars, fake subway stations, and old street signs. It was so awesome to see the hood buzzing and people out all hours of the night to watch them do the filming. Saturday as my friend's bbq birthday party. Lots of food, laughs, and drinking. I just have to say the girls kicked the boys ass in flip cup (something I haven't played in a really long time). Sunday the boy and I went to Governors Island for a brewers picnic. Lots of food trucks (found my new favorite one, Luke's Lobster Truck) and 3 beer tents (Brooklyn Brewery, Goose Island, and Six Point). It was so beautiful and who knew it was only a 5 minute ferry ride from Brooklyn to Governors Island. I see lots of picnics there in our future. Today did laundry and took a walk to a local park to sit and have some ice tea and lemonade.
