Looking for a Great Rooftop Movie Venue?

If you live in Brooklyn, look no further!

Williamsburg has it.

A new “tailored event space,” Dobbin St, has opened in the heart of Williamsburg—and before you start wondering what goes on in a tailored event space, let us save you the trouble. On Wednesdays, head directly upstairs to the 3,000-square-foot terrace beginning May 24 for a free movie series, “The Sunset Screenings.” You have to register here but again, it’s completely free, and the views of Manhattan’s skyline are spectacular.

A key attraction – the quality of the screenings.

Check it out!

Damn! I Missed all the Naked Gardening!

You might have missed it, but yesterday was World Naked Gardening day.

Launched back in 2005, the unofficial event happens every first Saturday of May and encourages gardeners around the world to get out in the fields, bare ass exposed to the sun, to get dirty in the name of growing things in the earth. 

While I did not venture forth in my birthday suit, Mashable has a montage of pics of folks who did. Not to worry, all strategic points of interest are protected.
