Save Coney Island!


Heads up, y'all.

If you love Coney Island--and who the hell doesn't?--then get on down to Galapagos Art Space this Saturday, January 30, for a good old fashion Brooklyn ho down.

The folks at Save Coney Island are holding a fundraiser for the hallowed amusement area.

"Gone Country for Coney" will feature five of the city's best plinkers and plunkers. The eats will be provided by Jakes BBQ.

Save Coney Island is fighting to restore Coney as a world-class amusement destination, and this includes "trying to revise or overturn the city's misconceived plan for the amusement district."


The group is working on a number of initiatives, including efforts to insure a successful 2010 season and protect historic buildings along Surf Avenue.

The event runs from 3pm to 9:30pm. Tickets are $15 until 5pm and 20 bucks for the slow pokes out there. And you get a raffle ticket with entry. Could you possibly need anything else? Of course not!

Galapagos Art Space is located at 16 Main Street at the corner of Water Street in delightful DUMBO.

Coney Island needs you, partner, so saddle up, come on down, and show your face at the place.
