Hello everyone, Bridgeland Buzz Blog week two here, stardate June 11, 2009.

It’s summer, so go outside and see movies in a park — or a parking lot.

Movies in the Park-ing Lot

Once again this summer, Mark Wojahn (director of film What America Needs) is hosting his 3rd annual Movies in the Park-ing Lot of Patrick’s Cabaret. There are four great films scheduled, short films, music and several special guests for Q & A after the film.
