Stanley, to answer your question, I think we have Brew Dog in NYC, but I don't think I've been to one. I knew a fellow who worked at one in London.

There's the next great FMU singalong game, RevRab. You shout "I belong to the [x] generation," where [x] is a DJ's name, and then have to freestyle a verse that captures that DJ's aesthetic.

Er, you go first.

@Scott Williams -- WOW i had no idea! prettey sure my local library has it in their system, MUST WATCH the whole film!

i saw the beginning of "Grizzly Man" some years ago -- Cinema Village? but my "date" was not feeling well, nauseous, etc. (or so he claimed) -- so we ended up going outside so he could get some air, and then he wanted to leave . . . we went back to my apartment, where all of a sudden he felt fine, wanted to order food, and "hang out" (yeah, this "relationship" did not last long, hah!)
