A drunk dude once smashed his bottle over my forehead at a 9:30 Cracker/Camper show, requiring multiple stitches after five or six hours of being ignored at Howard Hospital.

Count me in favor of plastic cups.

What did you do or say that prompted THAT?

I and my friends proudly patronize the bars at The Anthem and the 9:30.  I totally get the need to sell food and drinks to have a profit margin.  And the drinks are good!

The set times thing is still an issue.  LCD was shown as a 8:00 start time.  Some people in my group cancelled going because they knew they wouldn't make it.  Then it turns out that a DJ was spinning for two hours and LCD went on after 9:00.  Those friends that cancelled sure would have loved to know that so they could come.

A dude once said that very same word to me at a Bob Mould show. I think he liked me.

Did you ever think of asking “where are my friends tonight”?

I have no idea what you're asking here.  My quoted language has been changed to please the grammar police.

Lyrics
That's how it starts
We go back to your house
You check the charts
And start to figure it out
And if it's crowded, all the better
Because we know we're gonna be up late
But if you're worried about the weather
Then you picked the wrong place to stay
That's how it starts
And so it starts
You switch the engine on
We set controls for the heart of the sun
One of the ways we show our age
And if the sun comes up, if the sun comes up, if the sun comes up
And I still don't wanna stagger home
Then it's the memory of our betters
That are keeping us on our feet
You spent the first five years trying to get with the plan
And the next five years trying to be with your friends again
Oh, you're talking forty-five turns just as fast as you can
Yeah, I know it gets tired, but it's better when we pretend
It comes apart
The way it does in bad films
Except in parts
When the moral kicks in
Though when we're running out of the drugs
And the conversation's winding away
I wouldn't trade one stupid decision
For another five years of life
Oh, you drop the first ten years just as fast as you can
And the next ten people who are trying to be polite
When you're blowing eighty-five days in the middle of France
Yeah, I know it gets tired only where are your friends tonight?
And to tell the truth
Oh, this could be the last time
So here we go
Like a sales force into the night
And if I made a fool, if I made a fool
If I made a fool on the road, there's always this
And if I'm sewn into submission
I can still come home to this
And with a face like a dad and a laughable stand
You can sleep on the plane or review what you said
When you're drunk and the kids leave impossible tasks
You think over and over, "hey, I'm finally dead"
Oh, if the trip and the plan come apart in your hand
You look contorted on yourself your ridiculous prop
You forgot what you meant when you read what you said
And you always knew you were tired, but then
Where are your friends tonight?
Where are your friends tonight?
Where are your friends tonight?
If I could see all my friends tonight
If I could see all my friends tonight
If I could see all my friends tonight
If I could see all my friends tonight

It's my potentially wrong understanding that only a few of the wharf restaurants are actually open at this point. Can anyone confirm?

I know some temporarily opened last week and will reopen Monday. My wife and I are coming down for Queens on Friday and would like to eat before the show (sorry, Seth. We did eat at the soft opening, tho).

While waiting in line for Foo, I got a lobster roll from Red Hook and my buddy got a burger from Shake Shack. Crazy long lines everywhere that night.

I love a bottled beer...but I was in the top section last night for LCD and a spun-out dipshit pulled a Begbie and threw his mostly-empty plastic cup of beer over the railing and down onto the floor.

Everyone around was naturally pissed by this, and ushers were alerted and the guy was given the hook.

However, this made me think about how easy it would be for some asshole to throw a bottle over the railing from the second or third levels and really do some damage. 

Anything tossed from the third level could do damage, but a bottle from that height would be really dangerous.

As much as I hate to say it, I just don't think glass bottles are sustainable from a safety standpoint - due to the fucked up idiot factor.
