One of these is not like the other
"Logline: College kid and a middle-aged barfly try to find out why the Brooklyn bars are dying.
Sure, whales and spotted owls need protection --- but hold on, first things first--- something more important is endangered: the Brooklyn gin mill.
Not that anyone can quite remember why they're worth saving. . . but there's reason enough for a college kid and an eccentric to search Brooklyn bars for answers.
The two set out on bicycles through the streets of Brooklyn ---and after a French Connection chase on bikes---they stop at various bars hoping to find somebody who's like the Wizard of Bars - the sage behind the cocktail with all the answers about Brooklyn's dying culture. But he's nowhere to be found.
The only way to flush him out is to hold a Brooklyn gin mill reunion. And that---turns out to be one bad idea.
That's my script – now watch the whiplash ---'cause I'd like you to also consider my highly acclaimed book about the true story of those who raced to save others on 9/11 and did so again just two months later when Flight 587 crashed in Rockaway, their home town. (Praised by the likes of Tim Russert, Brian William, David Brooks and EJ Dionne).
I can send along a synopsis or a hardcover edition of the book, if you're interested.
Anyway, comedy or intense drama? What's your pleasure?
Please let me know if you're interested in seeing my script – or if I should send you a copy of my book."
