The soundtrack was appropriately hip (two tracks from Oh, Inverted World, the Iron & Wine version of "Such Great Heights," with plenty of Nick Drake). I especially enjoyed that the beginning of the movie was set in a restaurant that I've visited [nyc2003] (in the movie the place is in L.A. and not Brooklyn).
After the movie, we met up with some people at Golden Gardens as part of the Sarah & Mark going away festivities. The place was overrun with teenagers, circling fire pits. Of course, a few were scantily clad since it was a beach setting. The funniest part about the bonfires is that they're all very close to each other, which is kind of the opposite of what I would expect.
Since we didn't have a claim to a fire pit, we returned to Sarah & Martha's apartment to regroup before more drinking. For convenience, we stayed in Fremont and went to Norm's for a few pitchers. Some hasty drinking occurred, since Jeff was apparently racing against midnight.
According to the Stranger people from Michigan are good drinkers; so I did my best to help finish the extra beer. [drunkoftheweek]
