And on Sunday July 23
Pretty Girls Make Graves at McCarren Park Pool
(Lorimer St. btw. Driggs and Bayard – Williamsburg)
The Deal: 2-8pm
free show, byob (very stealth-like), or buy Brooklyn lager for $4 like a sucka
Pretty Girls Make Graves headlines the third show in the free Sunday McCarren Park Pool series. There are no free drinks, but there was free ice cream one week, and the Sparky’s catering is a nice touch. If you don’t want to pay $4 per beer, stuff a six-pack down your pants somehow (cause they’ll check your bags) and bring it on in.
