Islands @ Solar One

"We've challenged a top chef to feed your tummy at our first-ever Backyard BBQ event. We've given him the ingredients and space to prepare a feast for hundreds. Is he up to the challenge? You better believe it. Tell your friends, grab a blanket and come on out to this one-of-a-kind party. Look for a full-set performance by Islands, and enjoy FREE BEER all day. We're hosting a cook-off challenge where you'll have the chance to have your food critiqued by celebrity judges and win CASH PRIZES. Carnivores and vegetarians are welcome! This event is all ages."

That's how NY Magazine described Saturday afternoon's sold-out affair @ Solar One on the East River Waterfront in NYC (August 23, 2008). More pics from the show below...
