More about tomorrow's Futurehood benefit to help PS 41 convert its plain old rooftop into a environmentally-beneficent green roof: A measly $10 gets you assorted snacks and a sampling of chef Michael Anthony's food from Gramercy Tavern, Bobo, Murray’s Bagels, and Royal Café + Pastry. GELL project founder Vicki Sando and Manhattan borough president Scott Stringer will speak. Proponents believe that wider adoption of green roof systems in urban areas lead to decreased storm drain run-off and help scrub the air clean. Organizer Carlos Suarez envisions future outdoor events like the “Mozart series they have in Provence, maybe a biweekly opera series featuring the participation of neighborhood restaurants.” For tomorrow’s benefit, however, Southpaw co-owner Mikey Palms has enlisted slightly louder performances from bands including the Hungry March Band, Care Bears on Fire, and Tiny Masters of Today to round out the bill.
