Seen & Heard: Tribeca Film Festival’s Drive-In

••• I heard wrong: The official word is that Harry’s Italian is opening in Goldman Alley in mid-April.

••• The Tribeca Film Festival announced the dates of the Tribeca Drive-In (April 19-21), the the NYFEST Soccer Day (April 21), and the Family Festival Street Fair/ESPN Sports Day (April 28). The films at the “Drive-In” at the World Financial Center will be Jaws, The Goonies, and Knuckleball, a baseball documentary.

••• Artists Space Books & Talks is opening next Saturday at 55 Walker.

••• Blue Moon Fish will be back at the Tribeca Greenmarket on Saturday.

••• From the World Financial Center: “On Friday, March 23, the West Street entrance to the Winter Garden will be closed until Spring 2013 as construction on the WFC Pavilion continues.”

••• There was a sweet comment by Kathy Gwin about Bu & the Duck closing: “Even though my daughter has long outgrown the exquisite clothing from Bu and the Duck, we still loved the shop. I would by ribbons, socks, dolls , whatever I could find to appease my love for young children’s clothing. I am going to miss the shop tremendously. I never had the privilege of meeting Susan but had many many wonderful conversations on the phone. We would get so excited when a box would come UPS to the house! We would have a fashion show for sisters and brother and daddy and had a very hard time not buying every piece in the box! I did meet Sophia twice and my daughter, Piper named her new doll after her. We bought her during one of our NY trips while visiting the shop.I would try to visit the store every time I went to NY from Louisiana and Texas. My youngest child wore their beautiful clothing and shoes for years until I couldn’t squeeze her into it anymore. I was so upset when I found out they were closed. My older daughter just moved to Manhattan and actually went by the shop to hand them a resume…..that’s when we found it closed. Susan and Sophia, I wish you all the best in whatever you decide to do in the future…. but I know a lot of people who would love to see your beautiful creations for sale again. I have saved every piece for my ‘hope to have grandchildren’ one day!!”

••• I’ve been collecting Instagram photos (found via Twitter) on a Pinterest page. You don’t have to know what any of those things are to enjoy it: Here’s a pretty one of last night’s fog by Erwin McManus.
