this is so wrong on so many levels.....EV, don't know what was in the ground floor of the Tri-building. it's been unoccupied as long as I can remember...

EV Grieve said...

Thanks, Ken...

Someone tol me that I shouldn't mock the snuggie until I tried oneon...Uh-huh.

Media glut said...

IT's going to be, like, 80 degrees tomorrow.

EV Grieve said...

Good point, Larry... What does one wear under a snuggie anyway?

I am so sick of corporate "guerilla" marketing.

Girl said...

SO very wrong!

This reminds me of those pajama "hugging" parties that were happening a few years ago, don't know if they still are. Strangers would congregate in various apartments wearing only their PJs, and hug each other. I knew a woman who became addicted to these pathetic gatherings, and I thought she was totally off-the-wall!

EV Grieve said...

Oh, Girl! Cuddle Parties! And they are alive and well!

I understand the idea behind this... Or, God. No, no... I'm trying... I remember someone describing it as going to a bar but not drinking.

EV Grieve said...

Oh, anyway. See you at the Village PourHouse!

I think the most ridiculous part of this crawl may not be the Snuggies, but the sequence of bars.

Why, after SideBar, would one go to two places a few aves east and streets south, only to return to Belmont, which is literally across the street from SideBar? Aren't bar crawls supposed to be sort of directionally sense-making? Are they trying to make people barf?

These are rhetorical questions of course; we're talking about moronic drunks sporting Snuggies all over the East Village/Gramercy without shame on the first truly warm night of the year.

PS I have worn a Snuggie, but only my mom's when I visit her in Vermont. It has a howlin'-wolves-in-the-mountains print all over it, and I love to put it on and spin around mom's house doing a rendition of Cher's "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves."

ev'ry night the men would come around, and lay their money doooown...
