This is a quick reminder that this Saturday, September 6, the Sunnyside Shorts Film Festival will be taking place at the Sunnyside Gardens Park in (care to guess) Sunnyside, Queens.

The show starts at sunset (approximately 8:00 p.m.) and early arrivers will be treated to “traditional harp music” courtesy of Donie Carroll, Dan Neely and members of The Washington Square Harp and Shamrock Orchestra. This event is absolutely free and you can get more details by clicking here.

P.S.: For those of you looking for a little something to quaff tonight Dandy Wine will be hosting another tasting right here in Greenpoint. Here are the deets per the email I received this morning:

My girl Melissa will be here pouring three lovely wines, all from different regions and different varieties, but all wonderful just the same.  Here is the line-up for FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5th, 2008:

1.  MARTIN CODAX, ALBARINO 2006, RIAX BAIXAS, SPAIN (Martin Codax was a 13th century Galician troubadour, whose romantic works spoke of the inherent beauty of the Spanish countryside and coast.  The name     was given to the winery that produces this refreshingly dry Albarino.  Tart on the tongue, with nice round juicy fruits of citrus, peach, and pear! Yummmm.) $13

2.  GHOST PINES, CHARDONNAY 2006, CALIFORNIA (This is a winemaker’s blend; sourcing the best fruit from Sonoma, Napa, and Monterey counties.  Flavors of baked apples, crisp pear, and creamy oak.) $19

3.  GASCON, MALBEC 2007, MENDOZA ARGENTINA (Since 1884, Gascon has been recognized for the rich, smooth flavors that come from this high altitude vineyard situated along the Cordillera of the Andes Mountains.  Full-bodied and elegant, this Malbec has layers of blackberry, blueberry, dark cherry and mocha.  Perfect wine for FALL!!!) $14

If you missed last week’s tasting due to travel, apathy, or lack of email, you must come for a visit and drink some wine, eat some cheese, and meet your fellow Greenpointers!  All the cool kids are doing it…  it’s the best happy hour in town!

We’ll be pouring wine from 6 PM – 9 PM.  Hope to see you there.  We are located at 153 Franklin Street between India and Java in beautiful Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

And if you can’t make it to the tasting, be sure to drop by soon, we have a lot of new wine to check out.
