Need something fun to fill out your weekend of barbecue, fireworks, and the glorious summer heat? You’re in luck! Videology will be celebrating America’s freedom for the extended weekend – and beyond! Here’s what we have planned:
Feeling the need for speed? Celebrate America, beer, and the pinnacle of big budget Hollywood on Sunday, July 2 with Top Gun and a Budweiser! Your ticket also includes a pair of American flag aviator sunglasses and a unique call sign name tag for your initiation into the crew.
The Top Gun Naval Fighter Weapons School is where the best of the best train to refine their elite flying skills. When hotshot fighter pilot Maverick (Tom Cruise) is sent to the school, his reckless attitude and cocky demeanor put him at odds with the other pilots, especially the cool and collected Iceman (Val Kilmer). But Maverick isn’t only competing to be the top fighter pilot, he’s also fighting for the attention of his beautiful flight instructor, Charlotte Blackwood (Kelly McGillis).
Do you have Monday off work? Good! Do you have have to work? We feel for you – and we’re accommodating you by scheduling our Independence Day drinking game for 6PM! From Red Coats to Red Scares, America has seen (and defeated) just about everything in its wake. We brought democracy to Vietnam and South America, peacefully negotiated a cease fire with the Japanese in WWII and got WMDs out of the hands of Saddam Hussein. This 4th of July, Lady Liberty faces her greatest foe to date: Extraterrestrials! You’re going to need a stiff drink for this one – and we’ll have them for you, as well as guidelines for a drinking game to be provided at the event.
Not a fireworks person? Independence Day falls on a Tuesday this year, which means we will be hosting Movie Trivia, just like we do on any Tuesday.
Our Tuesday night trivia is our original and signature trivia event, as featured in The New York Times, Time Out, Brooklyn Magazine, and more! We’ll be bringing you six rounds of incredibly tough movie trivia. We’ve got clips rounds, general knowledge rounds, picture rounds, and theme rounds – including a 4th of July theme for the occasion! Bring a team of up to six – doors open at 7PM.
Lastly, we are bringing back The Simpsons bingo on Wednesday, July 5 with a special 7PM start time! What better way to celebrate American liberty than with the story of America’s longest-living TV family of all time! We have picked out a selection of patriotic episodes to keep things free and just.
Sideshow Bob’s Last Gleaming (Season 7)
Raging Abe Simpson and His Grumbling Grandson in “The Curse of the Flying Hellfish” (Season 7)
Simpson Tide (Season 9)
So come celebrate with us – all weekend long!
