St. Patrick's Day

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day #2 in Morristown. We'll be partying at Shaun's (the other half of the BurnTees empire) new apartment and I gotta say, I'm pretty damn excited. I'm finally fully recovered from last week's Hoboken St. Patrick's Day and I'm ready to get right back on that horse!

I guess I should finally write about Hoboken's St. Patrick's Day now that Morristown St. Patrick's Day is almost upon us. For the record, I don't remember everything, and what I do remember might not be what actually happened:

Went to bed early last Friday night because the Girlfriend and I were up on our way at about 8:30am Saturday morning. We headed to the path with 2 six packs, a bunch of nips (the little airline bottles of alcohol), and some redbull. We were ready to start the day! First desitnation - Jackie and Megan's apartment. Good times. Bruce Hornsby playing, alcohol being consumed, quiche being served...all at 9am. Can't beat that right?! (just as a side note...the bars in Hoboken didn't open until 11am and when we got off the PATH, there were already lines for all of the bars - it was 9:15am)

At about 10:45 we left and headed to Booger's for party number 2. This is where things get hazy. The party was already hoppin once we got there, lots of friends, lots of drinking, lots of laughing.....all the right ingredients for a fun party. We spent most of the day there because at this point, you can't get into the bars and it's not worth it anyway. Take if from me...house parties are the way to go on Hoboken St. Patrick's Day. It was also fun staying at Booger's all day because different groups of people kept coming and going so it was like going to a bunch of parties without having to leave!

At sometime after 10:45am (I told you...things got hazy) the Girlfriend and I headed to Washington St to get some lunch at Panera. We went maybe 5 blocks and within that time, I ran into about 30 people I knew...some I stopped to talk with, some I didn't...but all I kept thinking is, imagine how many people I'd run into if I was out more than 30 minutes? I figure everyone I've ever met was in Hoboken somewhere, and if I wandered around long enough, I'd probably run into everyone I knew.

Overall, I'd have to say that Hoboken St. Patrick's Day 2007 was a 10. Great day, ran into people wearing BurnTees (check out the pictures here: Customer Photos) hung out with friends...just a great day.

The Girlfriend and I actually went back home, showered and changed and went out in NYC all night, 18 hours straight of partying, but I won't get into that here today. Here's hoping that tomorrow's Morristown St. Patrick's Day is just as good, if not better, than Hoboken's St. Patrick's Day, and when I recover, I'll definitely write all about it.

As booger's party planner, I can attest to the good times. Oh -you left out the hardcore nudity toward the second half of the party....

Your memory's shot :-)

1. It was more like 2pm when we hit up Panera for my protein fix.

2. YOU showered. In the words of Xtina Aguilera, I was "Still Dirty" when we tried to act like we had an ounce of dignity left and hit up the Stone Rose.

3. I believe it was 20 + hours of straight partying.

and finally,

4. The bouncers and clientelle at Tenjune are total D-BAGS!

Good times.

P.S. I heard Booger wants his cheesedoodles back.
