Good thing I'm wearing green...
I was paying too much attention to the academic calendar, and had almost forgotten that today was the Hoboken St. Patrick's Day parade. The river of vomit outside was a good reminder. So far the drunks have been entertaining instead of annoying, and other than a quick errand I've been staying at home with reading and TiVo catchup. If I didn't have so much of both to do, I'd be out taking photos of the spectacle.

Found via Hoboken 411, enjoy a failed keg stand, this scene from my grocery store a couple of blocks away, and random drunkenness. Or just read my recap from last year, when I blogged more.

Maybe I'll explore the aftermath tonight, when the amateurs have passed out or left town.

And only the professionals remain?

Most people who live here either learn how to drink or don't drink it seems. You don't shit where you eat, mostly. The people brawling on the corners, smashing bottles, and screaming in to the night - odds are they don't live here.

Sure, there's some sloppy drunks in town, but most end up changing quickly.

That makes sense, I can totally see that.

The one really messed up drunk I know who lives in Hoboken, and I'll admit to not knowing many people in town, is an old wealthy real estate guy. Once physically charged at me in a bar, years ago. But he's the only drunk I've seen on a weeknight that wasn't a quiet well behaved or sullen drunk.
