Me and Marilyn went to The Brooklynites launch party Thursday night @ Brooklyn Industries to have some Brooklyn Brewery beer, meet the guys, and celebrate Brooklyn. The scene was very well put together, with pics from the book adorning the store, and a video documentary of author Anthony Lasala and photographer Seth Kushner's noble quest to put together this book.

The book itself, purchased by your's truly, is a must have for any Brooklyn loving folk. It paints a rich tapestry of what Brooklyn is all about with lush photos, great quotes, and masterful memoirs.

The music for the evening was provided for by another Brooklyn Original, musician/producer Ron Scalzo aka Q*Ball, who spun a great mix of hip rock'n'roll!

Meeting Seth and Anthony was very cool. They were both extremely nice, and from the book I can clearly see that they are extremely talented as well. You can tell they are very proud of their work and that the reaction to it is very humbling.

And look here for an interview with the guys very soon!
