“I didn’t even know we had cultural things like that here.”
That’s what a friend of mine told me a few years ago at the former Mooney’s Pub. I was explaining that before coming out for drinks, I had been at the Alpine to see a screening of “Ajami,” one of the movies in the 2010 Other Israel film festival.
The news that such a thing had a footprint in Bay Ridge was met with surprise.
Fun fact: we totally have such things. Here’s another cultural/artistic program that might surprise you, but will make you glad that it’s here – the Bay Ridge Poets Society, now prepping for its third monthly open mic night this Sunday evening (March 24, 6pm) at The Owl’s Head wine bar (479 74th Street).
