Tonight is the very last night of this year’s edition of Summerscreen, The L’s free outdoor film series at McCarren Park, and before the leaves all die and youth is lost, you should head over to Bedford Avenue and North 12th Street. The gates open at 6pm, the better for you to enjoy the happy hour-priced Sixpoint beer and Wines of Australia, um, wines; the food from San Loco and the Van Leeuwen ice cream truck, and music from local acts Bottle Up & Go and the Nouvellas.

Since tonight’s movie is the awesomely 80s high school musical Fame, it is imperative that you dress appropriately. The best 80s costume — emphasis on the legwarmers and leotards — as adjudged by a panel of experts (Savit?) will receive a $100 gift certificate to the Bubble Lounge, and a free pair of Roos (80s sneakers, natch).

And then… that’s it. Stick around after, we’ll be the ones at Turkey’s Nest, sitting silently in the corner, wondering where the summer went.
