New York Marathon

So I had my bachelor's party this weekend. I drove up to New York City with my friends Mike, Lee and Jim. There, we met up with my other friend, Zach, who planned a night of fun in Brooklyn.

The itinerary was a mystery. We caught a cab for Greenpoint, then took a walk.

...and ended up at the Brooklyn Brewery.

The best part of the tour was the free beer at the end.

Leaving the brewery, we couldn't find a cab and spent 45 min. taking the subway back to the hotel.

Then, after meeting up with a group of high school, college and law school friends, we headed out to dinner at a Viennese restaurant.

After dinner, we took a quick cab ride to a club in Williamsburg called Northsix :

to see The Fucking Champs:

...the show rocked.

Later, we went to another bar in Williamsburg with pictures of naked ladies on the walls:

Roughly 2:15am

...this was followed by a stint at the Royal Oak, also in Brooklyn.

Some random drunk girl messed up our group picture.

We closed out the Royal Oak at 4:00 am and went to a diner in Brooklyn Heights for breakfast.

Finally, at we finished up the party at the Brooklyn Heights Promenade 6:15am. The fog was so bad that you couldn't see Manhattan, but I was so tired that I didn't care.

All in all, I couldn't have asked for a better time!

In the first shot at Royal Oak, Random Hipster Cunt #1 has got a little middle-finger action going on. That's so badass. She's, like, fighting the man, one button-up striped shirt at a time.

The funniest part is that you know she talked about it later. "And there were these preppie guys there, and I got in their picture and totally flipped off the camera." Awesome.

That's funny. I hadn't noticed her middle finger in the photo.

Now that I see it, though, I am chastened and cowed. Her bold statement really makes me see how my presence at the Royal Oak was insulting and offensive. I understand now what a fragile ecosystem Williamsburg is, and that assholes like me and my friends shouldn't go to bars there, lest it cease being cool.
