Mr. J. and his cam made it through the throngs at yesterday’s Atlantic Antic, capturing the excitement of a festival blessed by near perfect weather. Video after the jump, featuring lots of music, belly dancing, food, fun, and (who else?) Marty Markowitz.

Yesterday, Borough President Marty Markowitz hosted a Dine in Brooklyn (details on this forthcoming event are in Chuck Taylor’s post) preview tasting for the press at Borough Hall, and Karl, his cam, and your correspondent were there.
