Fool's Gold at Brooklyn Bowl
Saturday evening I met up with several friends at Spuyten Duyvil in Williamsburg and later walked down to Brooklyn Bowl to see Fool's Gold. The show was great! The band played a few of my favorites from their first record and I enjoyed watching them play songs from their second album. The audience was FULL of kids. I say kids because compared to me that's what they are. I think it's the first time I went to a show and accutely felt the + 10 years I have on them. As Jon said, I had my crazy times when I was their age and now it's their turn. Good lord. :)
Sunday afternoon I made it into the city to catch the vintage train that had been running on the weekends in September on the 2/3 express line. This was part of the promotional push for Boardwalk Empire and the beginning of their second season.
The train had ceiling fans and the windows were open for the entire ride. At one point my friends and I noticed the incredible pieces of graffiti spanning the entire length of the tunnel walls that we were only able to see because the windows were open. I was very tempted to stick my hand outside of the train but of course I kept all appendages inside the car. It was a fun experience and I'm glad we were able to catch this train before the promotional rides ended.
