Holiday Projections at Freddys

The holiday projections have returned to the South Slope. Look south starting around 10th or 11th Street and you may see the following strange, yet festive films projected at the top of Freddy's Bar. They were created by Freddy's co-owner Donald O'Finn and you can see more of his work inside, so drop by for a drink!
