We survived a hurricane party!

August 29, 2011

With all due respect to anyone who had their property damaged or experience injury/stress during Hurricane Irene (Brooklyn flooding was no joke & New Jersey got slammed), it was probably the most fun weekend of the summer!

Evacuation added an air of adventure to what ended up being a series of stops to the businesses and abodes of our friends, ending up in Bushwick where my friend Natalia was throwing a full blown BBQ dance party. We stayed at that party for over 24 hours (and it didn’t stop when we left, so who knows—they might still be raging). I had fun live tweeting the experience!

Complete with quick sprints through the storm (fun but foolish, do not try at home), Gypsy films, a spontaneous drum circle (yeah, my friends are more than a little bohemian), and really good food, this weekend made me wish storms would force our friends together more often.

Some of my photos of the whole experience are below, including a view of the impending storm from the rooftop of my friend’s restaurant.

All in all, we were left with a warped impression of just how fun natural disaster can be. But that aside, I hope all of you are safe and have emptied the water from your basement and returned to your homes!

      Georgie’s girlfriend’s dog Bastian! But he adopted the name Pedro for the weekend. Very similar disposition to Arthur. ♡
