My heart is in Long Island City, but right now as I sit here in my cubicle typing this out to you, my mind is actually en la playa. Plus, now that we have this school issue settled(no not really, not even close, it’s really just getting started…), even the news this time of year is ho-hum. So in the spirit of long summer weekends, let’s say that it starts tonite(Thursday) here in LIC with dinner and a movie: Alobar is having a special “nose to tail dinner” and the Summer Movie Series in Gantry Park is showing “Footloose.” As for the rest of the LIC news, entertainment supersedes all else for now as exemplified by the detail in the third article that the new LIC microbrewery has plans to open a “Growler Room” come September. Hmm, that will give you something to dream about through Labor Day as you lounge on the sand, whether it be Coney’s or the Cote d’Azur’s.
