OK, Brooklyn, the lively West Indian American Day Carnival and Labor Day are over, so now what? According to some reports, there were millions of people at the carnival. Way to par-tEE!
Now, the kids go back to school on Wednesday, Sept. 8. The back-to-school sale is still happening on Fulton Street until Sept. 13 for last-minute or unexpected items.
And, of course, Saturday is Sept. 11. In addition to a Memorial Service at Ground Zero and a scheduled rally against the nearby mosque, there’s several events going on in Brooklyn on Sept. 11:
8:30 a.m. – Prospect Park – “TEAL Walk” for ovarian cancer, Registration: $30, Bartel Pritchard Square Entrance
2 p.m. – Rock Yard – “Never Forget 2010, Bikes in the Kitchen, DJ Dirty Finger, and Special Guest” – Free Admission – 354 Wythe Avenue.
7 p.m. – Southpaw – “Brooklyn Country Music Festival” – Tix: $15-$30, 125 Fifth Avenue
Sept, 11 is not a day that we can actually enjoy, but it is a day we can enjoy being together. So, cherish what you got, Downtown Brooklyn, while you got it.
‘Till next time.
