In no particular order, here are all the things that will change your life for the last time this Wednesday at McCarren Park:

1. A free screening of Clueless on a gigantic screen provided by Rooftop Films, in McCarren Park, in the middle of summer, in what will probably be your last time to comfortable lounge underneath that handful of New York stars.

2. A FREE performance from Zambri at 7:30 who sound really cool and were hand-picked by the musical geniuses over at FreeWilliamsburg.

3. A big fat gift certificate from Tortoise & Blonde for some free designer eyewear (sign up with an L mag staffer in a sea foam green tee)

4. A giant game of Yahtzee over at the Southwest Airlines tent, winners get free miles to travel around the country (but hopefully just Vegas).

5. Epix will be giving away a $300 gift certificate to Bloomingdale’s in honor of people who have digitized closets that tell you when your plaid skirt mismatches your knee socks and Kangol hat.

6. Cold Sixpoint beer. In CANS. For $4.

7. FREE Vitamin Water samples. As if! (no, they’re really free).

8. FREE Pop Chips samples. Because we’re keepin’ it real.

9. Fiat will be on site showing off their awesome cars for you to horse around in. Careful, you can get a ticket even if you have a permit.

Good afternoon contempo casuals, our annual free movie series SummerScreen presented as part of the EPIX Movie Free-For-All series ends this Wednesday with Clueless, our favorite Alicia Silverstone movie to date (sorry, Batman & Robin). Come sit with us, enjoy a snack from Pizza Moto, V-Spot, Mexicue, or Coolhaus, drink a beer from Six Point, and grab a free bag of Pop Chips and stop by the Vitamin Water tent for a sample or five.
 
Before the movie starts at sundown, enjoy a free musical performance from Zambri– a very awesome and well-sounding band chosen for us by the geniuses over at Free Williamsburg. There will also be boatloads of raffles and prizes; EPIX will be signing people up to win a free $300 gift certificate to Bloomingdales, Southwest Airlines will be giving away free miles if you go play giant-Yahtzee with them, FIAT is bringing a brigade of cars for you to play in, and Tortoise and Blonde will be raffling off gift certificates, and we’ll be giving away an ipad2 to the person who we feel is the best guest at this party. Come Wednesday to find out what you’re in for. Find one of our goregeous interns in a sea-foam green L Magazine shirt and give them your name to enter the drawing.
 
See you Wednesday, non-driving virgins! Happy end-of-Summer!

SummerScreen: loosely defined as a gathering of likeminded, beer-minded souls who like free movies, winning cool shit, and listening to awesome bands and stuff, all in the sweet smelling troves of McCarren Park. Maybe meeting new friends, ya know, wearing summer hats and shorts and lounging on blankets. Come tonight to watch Wayne’s World for free, listen to some tunes from YEllow Dogs, and drink under the stars. Watch this awesome timelapse video from last week to see what you’re in for.
