The after party following the first day’s blocks of films was an incredible blast. We went to a cool little pub about a block from the river called Mr. Moto’s. They put out a humungous variety of pizzas for the film fest crowd and the libations flowed freely.
If you’ve never been around a group of film makers and their entourages after they’ve been “properly lubed,” you just haven’t lived. Live music interspersed with witty (and sometimes not-so-witty) repartee made for an incredible evening. The “after” after party crowd did not disappoint. (From what I hear of course…I was a good boy─sorta.)
We’ve just begun the second day with a delicious brunch at The Drake on the river. And now the films are rolling again.
If you have any doubts about this little town on the river rocks, consider this. Following the Snake Alley Festival of Film, they’ll launch “Steamboat Days,” a music festival featuring a variety of music genres. One of the headliners this year is Kid Rock. They anticipate crowds of 10,000 or more.
Last night there was also a gallery hop for people who are into art. There was live music, food and wine. As I said a few posts back, this town is becoming a Midwest version of Key West.
If you missed out, plan to make it next year. Your intrepid blogger will be here suffering through another day of friendly folks, fabulous films, and rocking parties.
