Free Screening of Mad Men Premiere in Times Square

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

I’m sure over the past couple weeks you’ve heard your fair share of buzz over the return of Mad Men. I for one am guilty of avatar-ing myself into over-the-top fandom territory. And with good reason. Because in the pit of despair that is the summer television line-up, our prayers have finally been answered.

If like many New Yorkers, you don’t succumb to the “man” and have cable TV, hurry your finely tailored ass over to Times Square tonight to watch the premiere episode on the big screen; space that is usually reserved for peddling M&M’s and Justin Timberlake.

If you missed the casting call heard round the world, don’t cry in your dirty martini yet. Channel your best sixties style and enter the costume contest at 8pm before the show. I’d attempt going for the “Joan” look but I don’t think Victoria’s Secret makes prosthetics to fake out that bust line.

Laura S - Spendthrift Scribe

Laura S, left the "sixth borough" three years ago to settle in Brooklyn. After working at some daily rags, she now does writing on the side but still eats more Ramen then necessary. When she's not moving residences every 6 months, eating her way through every neighborhood, and trying every microbrew known to man, she is unsuccessfully rediscovering home economics. With her binging days behind her, she's now exploring new projects and rediscovering the city that she loves (although is still prone to sliding on her knees during a Prince karaoke set).

    That Avatar thing is sweet!

    Also, I think the woman who plays Joan is the embodiment of feminine perfection. Holy Christ!
