performing at South Street Seaport in Manhattan, as part of the 4Knots Festival (the replacement for the former Siren Festival at Coney Island), the other weekend.

And speaking of music:

ThisCityi$Mine Photo Contest! —
Nikon’s letting me give away a brand new Nikon CoolPix P300. Send me { andrew[at]thiscityismine.com } your best concert photo that you’ve taken by August 8th, and I’ll award the person with the strongest shot. I used to shoot with an older CoolPix several years back, and they pack a decent punch for such a small size. Fine print: maximum of two images per person, and open to US residents only. Also, while you’re at it, you could enter the same shots into Nikon’s Cool Shot Contest to potentially win some other stuff.

A few weeks back, Jenn and I went down to Emerald Isle, North Carolina on a beach trip with about 23 other family members and their friends/significant others. Here are a few of them. From the top left: Caitlin, Rick, Cassidy, Hillary, Lucas, Lily, Laura Helen, Todd, Mike, Paul, Clay, Scott, Andy, Calvin, and Linda.

A shout-out to Twin Peaks, near the Navy Yard on Flushing Ave in Brooklyn.

• Thanks to everyone who made it out to the big bike ride down to Fort Tilden this past Sunday, and the dinner afterward in South Slope. Jenn and I appreciated the great send-off.

It seems I’ve missed the sidewalk feast by a few hours.
