Bubble Battle

The Mermaid Parade is underway in Coney Island today (6/18). At 6pm head to the boardwalk near the aquarium for:

...millions of bubbles fly through the air as we converge for a magical bubble battle! Loosely based on the Dr. Seuss Classic The Butter Battle Book. Bring bubble toys, bubble generators, bubble solution, and plenty of AA batteries :) We will meet, fill our weapons and pull the trigger!

Last year over 1,500 people came to disseminate joy by the bubbles per minute. Be creative with your contraptions and take sides: butter side up or butter side down! In the spirit of the day, dress like a mermaid, Neptune, or various sea creatures. This is a family-friendly event. See you on the boardwalk! [NewMindSpace]

At 6:30 pm, the Brooklyn Cyclones play their first baseball game of the season against the Staten Island Yankees. it's a lively day in Coney Island for sure.

^The snarks are all to busy getting ready to nod their heads to Surfer Blood and Wavves at McCarren Park.

why do hipsters rely on these gimmicks simply so they can mingle and touch one another? are they incapable of initiating human (and humane) contact, outside of a mass gathering?

Must be the herd mentality of the trust funders.

no issue with a mass-collective blasting bubbles - nothing wrong with community fun. my only issue is with that fucking scarf. its 80 degrees. and its horrendous looking.

Scarves are for orthodox hipsters. The top of the tier really.

if you don't wear scarves, well then you probably don't read stereogum either
