Anyway, I may have made a comment about all this on the EVG Facebook page Saturday. Something like:
A lot of large groups of really stupid people out tonight. Not used to this in the past month. My Jackass Guard is down.
And some 60 people responded, many having witnessed all this too ... a few comments:
• "Huge bro & woo packs from Chelsea over to EV. I ran home to take a xanax."
• "it sounded like an absurdist theatrical performance was walking down my block"
Anyway, since then, several people have pointed out that it's only going to get worse ... tomorrow marks an Ugly Sweater Pub Crawl starting at the Village Pourhouse...
Then on Dec. 15, also starting at the Village Pourhouse....
Yes, it is as crazy as it sounds. Picture thousands of Santas running throughout the streets of the city to some of the best bars that Manhattan has to offer.
Oh, and Dec. 15 is also SantaCon.
As one sort-of EVG acquaintance said last Saturday, maybe we should just be happy that people are returning to the neighborhood post Sandy to help the local economy. Should we just be happy for the swarms?
