Flavors: March 18-23
Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday, Purim, St. Patrick’s Day, and Pi Day are all over.
You don’t need to be sad. The best holiday of the month is upon us, and we’ll be celebrating it all week long.
It’s Angelo Badalamenti’s 77th birthday.
If that name doesn’t sound familiar, maybe THIS will jog your memory!
Press play and let ‘er go, guys, because that right there is the Twin Peaks soundtrack in its entirety, composed by a certain South Brooklyn native named Angelo Badalamenti. There’s a lot of great people that came out of these parts down here — the “uncool” parts of Brooklyn everyone complains it’s too hard to get to when really they’re just being lazy. Like Hubert Selby, author of Last Exit to Brooklyn and Requiem for a Dream. Janet Yellen, current chair of the Federal Reserve, and only woman to even hold the post. All Three Stooges, AND Shemp (I’ll accept Curly Joe over my dead body). Jimmy Fallon. Joey Fatone.
But off all these names, how many people have ever wrote a song for a backwards talking little person to dance to? NONE! And so, we present:
On top of all this, we’ll have lots of surprises all week long, and on Saturday will be serving up slices of cherry pie with a damn fine cup of coffee for only $5. We’ll have paper handy in case you decided you need to stop everything and write an epic poem about the pie.
Costumes are not required, but if you’re going to come all the way down to Bay Ridge for Twin Peaks pie, you should probably stick around for…….
ALL OF BAY RIDGE IS GETTING IN ON THIS! So get in costume, get on the train, come down and be weird with us.
(PS: If you think this is great, you won’t believe what we’re putting together for the Feast of Scott Baio in September.)
