The Real Stormy Monday

On Monday, February 19, Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus and the official Boogaloo Bag photographer and baker Nancy “Jeannie” Gardner trekked out to the furthest point of East Williamsburg in order to entertain the troops that happen to show up at the Jupiter Disco that night. Appropriately called Stormy Monday–it rained all day–The Boog had a box of old 7” records and Miss Nancy had a container of home-made fudge.

But before The Boog went to work, the couple shared grease at Los Hermanos–quite possibly the most excellent taqueria in the world. The dining area is actually the loading dock for a tortilla factory. Get your fresh tortillas here–a 30 oz. bag for one dollar! It is only steps away from the Jefferson Street stop on the L Train, on Starr Street. Once filled up on tacos and quesadillas, the scene was made at the Jupiter Disco, a couple of blocks away.

Stormy Monday is the Jupiter Disco’s official retro/Sixties night. Each Monday, a different DJ is asked to come and swing. The February 19 date was The Boog’s third time working this hustle and each time is a gas, even though he swings for five solid hours without a break.

As previously mentioned, Nancy “Jeannie” Gardner brought along her borough-famous, cinnamon-infused fudge and it was the hit of the evening. Our pal and fellow DJ Drew Redmond was on hand to devour much of it! Also, she took all of these photos.
