- Owl’s Head co-owner John Avelluto outside the bar, doing his best Agent Cooper
The Owl’s Head is not what it seems: two Bay Ridge businesses are celebrating film composer and neighboring Dyker Heights native Angelo Badalamenti’s birthday this week by offering Twin Peaks-themed events and foods. The newish bakery Robicelli’s, run by the city’s favorite cupcake magnates the Robicellis, will offer a Peaks-inspired menu all weekend: the Audrey Horne is a whoopie pie filled with maraschino marshmallow buttercream; the Laura Palmer is an hibiscus tea cupcake with lemon buttercream, lemon cookie shard, and hibiscus syrup drizzle. (LAUUUURA!!!) And so on. You can see the menu on Facebook, though there have been off-menu surprises, too, like a Jerry Horne cupcake! Or, to keep it simple, five bucks will get you a cup of coffee and a slice of cherry pie.
Then, on Saturday evening, the Owl’s Head wine bar will host its second annual Badalamenti birthday party/Twin Peaks costume party, where they’ll project a Lynch montage on the wall while playing Angelo Badalamenti on the speakers all night long in the hopes that he’ll hear it all the way in Los Angeles, jump on a plane, and come visit.
