11 Aug

Next week we serve up a giant helping of fast cars, fast music and fast men. Yes, it’s two hours of staring a Vin Diesel in his prime. Oh, and that other guy, too. (Plus, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez, if that’s your preference.)

The O’Connell Oganization is sponsoring THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS, and The Brooklyn Ice House will be on hand serving dinner. (For Wall-E they did pulled pork, hot dogs, and mac n’ cheese — it was delish! — so we’ll see what they do for TFATF.)

Here’s Greg O’Connell Jr. and his brother, Michael, doing their best Brian and Dominic impression. (Shot by photographer extraordinaire, Craig LaCourt.)

Um, and did y’all know there’s a TFATF 6 coming next year? With Letty rumored to be coming back?!?!?! IMDB says it might be so.

The O’Connells are the Fast and the Furious

Look at this amazing new sponsor photo from Craig LaCourt Photography.

He shot the O’Connell brothers down at the pier in their sweet ride, showing off before they sponsor The Fast and The Furious on August 16.

Labor Day weekend doesn’t have to be over! Extend your holiday with a trip to Valentino Pier to catch THE LIFE AQUATIC, featuring Bill Murray and Owen Wilson. There are killer sharks, daddy issues, beautiful girls, neurosis and more. (It is, after all, a Wes Anderson movie.)

The O’Connell Organization, which owns and manages many of the buildings on the Red Hook waterfront, is sponsoring this evening. And we’ll have popcorn from Home/Made on sale for $1 per bag.

Come down early for a spot, but the movie rolls at 8:30 p.m.
