The Hook – not totally closed just yet
Someone from The Hook got in touch to let me know that they're not going out just like that. There will be one final party at the closing venue on October 27th, and strangely - it will be a Halloween party called "The Death of Astroland" - "a laying rest of the Coney Island we all once knew". So basically the final party at the Red Hook venue will be in honor of the closing of Astroland in Coney Island. I guess, why not? More details below....
THE DEATH OF ASTROLAND...a laying rest of the Coney Island we all once knew...
There is going to be free beer and free food.
There is going to be a ball pit (Yes, like the kind they have in Chuck E. Cheese but for adults).
There is going to be free skee ball.
There is going to be a highstriker (For those of you who don't know what a highstriker is, it's that stupid game where you hit a thing with a hammer and the ball flies up and hits the bell).
There is going to be a paintball alley (alla "SHOOT THE FREEK"). --i misspelled freak on purpose.
There is going to be pin the beard on the fat lady.
There will be live bands, a burlesque show, and live DJ music ALL NIGHT LONG.
And much, much more!
