Notes From The Great Greenpoint Mac Off

As promised follows is some footage Mr. Heather shot of Greenpoint’s first and certainly not to be last Mac Off. It should be noted he had no clue whatsoever as to how to use my camera so the selection of footage the Mister shot would be best described as somewhat esoteric. This having been said, I suspect I speak for my fellow judges and a number of people present when I say I had a wonderful time. Arguably my favorite part of the evening (other than sampling mac and cheese, of course) was the raffle. In true Greenpoint fashion some hooligan or hooligans decided it would be funny to stuff the raffle box with empty ballots. You can imagine what happened when it came time to draw for prizes. It was the 2004 (and 2000 for that matter) Presidential election all over again.

But enough preliminaries— let’s get on with the show!

The owner of tbd was so blown away by the the turnout she hopes to bring this event back next year with even more participants.* I wholeheartedly second this motion. Great job!

Photos Du Jour: Long Island City Shots

Now that the Mac Off* is behind me I have had the time to upload some really lovely photographs from my latest sojourn to Long Island City. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Footage from this evening’s Mac Off will be forthcoming tomorrow!

*Which was not without controversy. For starters Mizz Greenpoint does not in fact live in Greenpoint: she lives in Park Slope. In addition Red Star saw fit to put bacon in their mac and cheese thus precluding me from eating it. Not that this made any real difference; we immediately and unanimously agreed The Habitat deserved props. Way to go guys (and gals)!
