WHAT TO EAT, DRINK & DO — ACCORDING TO ARTISTS WE LOVE
Shoot some hoops at Brooklyn Bridge Park
KEVIN URVALEK: “I like it because I like to play basketball a lot in my free time, and they have the best basketball courts in the city there. They have a really nice pavilion and it’s all in the shade, so you can play all times of the year and the courts are never wet.
It’s just my favorite place to go on weekends, out of any place in Brooklyn. It’s beautiful, it’s right on the water, you can see all of Battery Park and the whole southern skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge. Afterwards, there are really good places in Brooklyn Heights to hang out and get food and stuff. It’s just one of the most nice places in the city.
And it’s really good competition — people are really good at basketball there. People know different basketball hoops. Most parks have double rims There, they have breakaway rims. So when you hold onto it, it comes down, and it’s easier to shoot on it… and this has nothing to do with music.”
EDDIE KUSPIEL: “It does a little bit, because every time Kevin gets hurt playing basketball…”
KEVIN: ‘If you’re gonna come to Brooklyn, it’s a dope-ass place to go.”
RAY MCGALE: “While we’re on the record talking about basketball, Color Tongue will challenge any band out there in basketball. And we’ll definitely win — because we have Kevin, and he’s gonna do most of the work.”
