Bushwick II

SLIDELUCK Bushwick II was a huge success! Hundreds of folks from the ‘hood attended for a signature Slideluck event, featuring a slew of talented local artists and a scrumptious potluck dinner. It was a bit of a housewarming party- celebrating Slideluck’s recent move to it’s new headquarters inside Sandbox Studio‘s Bushwick facilities.

 

If you were lucky enough to be there, here’s a little taste of what you might have overheard:

Yifen Jen: Hi! Did you make that? Can you leave that over there? Did you sign in? Can you fill in a card? Did you get raffle tickets? Sorry too many questions….

Fernando Lora: Free food, beer, and art — every college student in New York City should be here right now.

Natalie Croker: If attendees didn’t get a stamp, don’t blame me… Blame the food, photos and socializing that had to be enjoyed.

Alison Sikowitz: I had hoped for a lemon bar and was greeted with three.

Alex Amerman: Ratta tat tat, that slideshow made me fat.

Suchan Vodoor: Vodka, neat, please. No, that is not just a shot of vodka, it comes in a different glass!

Daeha Ko: How about them strawberry rubarb pie? Nom nom nom nom!

Casey Kelbaugh: I knew we had a good thing going when I realized that event was supposed to end an hour earlier and the entire Sandbox crew was in our office, drinking all our Bourbon.

Aija Suuta: I never knew that rainbow buttercream cake and lavender ice cream went so well.

Jen Plaskowitz: Suchan! Stop drinking that Brooklyn Brew and help me clean up.

Kimberly Liu: I would love one day for a Slideluck to go: potluck, slideshow, DANCE PARTY.
