Green Lantern in DC rocks with "Reel Affirmations" party; Cobalt-DC draws big on Friday nights
The audience at the film and at the GL tonight was more or less like the characters in the film; this is not the svelte 21-year-old disco crowd.
I saw a sign at the bar for a Gear Fetish Party called the Code, the first Saturdays of the months, and offering “barbers” (use your imagination), so I checked the dress code. I would have a hard time meeting this one, but here it is (link ).
Friday night, The Cobalt-DC really hopped, with a long line outside by 11 PM. However “bearish”, the men were almost always lean. Call this the "low body mass index" crowd.
And as I got there, the Yankees were carrying out their come-from-behind 6-5 victory in the ALCS at Texas on my Blackberry. Tried randomly, most guys knew what this was.
There's one earlier shot of a guy with a funny T-shirt at the Harman Theater earlier (at the movie screening). He said it was OK to take it. Maybe the word will disturb some people; but this is a grown-up audience. I don't move into the "R" territory often. Remember the movie "I Heart Huckabees"? Roger Ebert rather liked it, as I remember. (I did see it. Jason Schwartzman and now Nev Schulman ["Catfish"] qualify as "lean" or low body mass index bears, however straight or heterosexual they are.) Yup, "Oh, my, God!"
