Webcinema's Frying Pan Party

THE BALMY AIR, the murky waters of the Hudson, the aromatic fish smells of the docks, the stars in the sky, the great salsa band - what could make a night out on the town better?! Kudos to Jonathan Sarno and his WebCinema group in conjunction with Troma Films, for putting on a nice party at the Frying Pan docked off the Chelsea Piers on May 3. Despite slightly inclement weather, about 300 people showed up. There was a special appearance from Sergeant Kabuki, NYPD, who I got to speak with about his charitable works. Donned in theatrical make up and costume, Sgt. Kabuki told me how he has spent the last 25 years helping others do independent films, as well as keeping our streets safe! Other happy revelers included Chan Suh of, Martin Kane and Bill Carmody. We even were privy to an impromptu display of fireworks, compliments of some other event down river!
