What a weekend! Went to RI for a Bachelor party! Got in some Golf, Grilling, The Beach, it was a grand time! When I came back on Sunday I had drank the equivalent of 54 sailors so I decided to ride my bike down to McCarren Park Pool for the Pool party featuring Hold Steady and Loved ones. On the way there it started to DOWNPOUR and it was amazing to see the Loved Ones with so much water coming down....this photo was taken after the rain let up a bit but I have to say it was one of the best shows I have seen in a long time! My Birthday is on Sunday! Thats all!

4 saturdays is a lot of Saturdays

What a great week. I am not sure I can remember/ retell of all the events of Flag Day but I wanted to give you some highlights. In NO order at all, from the Day and from the Week.

1) We started out Flag day with a simple plan. To take a photo of every beer we drank. It started off well.

I wont go through the whole series but .... my favorite part is that Braden had his 9th beer 5 times.

2) A total of 5 kegs and 18 cases of Dogfish Head beer was consumed a new Flagday Vs Hoodstock record!

3) I lost my pants.

4)we got to play wiffleball in the park

5) Brooke found picked up a 80 year old man at the ball park. They are moving to Atlantic city together .

6) Turns out my pants were in my room.

7) we drank 16+ pitchers of beer and ate 5 trays of nachos while watching the Celtics come back Vs the Lakers on Thursday.

8) I almost got kicked out of Karaoke but was able to sing : Rock Lobster, Dancing with Myself, America and You may Be Right.

9) 7 people apparently got cut off after the party. I was one of them. Go me.

10) No one died and I woke up in my own bed.

So yeah good times!

Check out the Photos here
and I can't wait until next year! !!!!!

34 days until my birthday, 12 days until Flag day!

Flag day is so close! SO SO SO SO CLOSE

become friends with flag day here

I am excited about June, lots of wiffleball to be played and FLAG DAY.

for those of you asking ... doug... what the hell is Flag day.

well flagday is a special time in every persons life where they get to drink for free in the middle of the day
See-- 4th of july
see also-- memorial day
see as well--the weekend

This is our yearly party and we ask you to come join and drink ... its that simple ... so come and drink and have fun times and arm wrestle canada.

Last summer, The Syndicate's Hoodstock took on Pirate's Flag Day in an epic clash held on the battle grounds of Astoria...and so began the battle for the ultimate summer party.

Everyone was in full force and the pressure was on:

The wrestling match between The Syndicate's Jon Landman and Pirate's Steve Theo somehow resulted in a catastrophe so great it turned into a tag-team match - eventually defeating itself in a pool full of maple syrup and stale beer.

Such mayhem continued in a contest between Doug of Pirate! and Pat of the Syndicate, where the ball clearly went into the strawberries and should of resulted in a 2 shot penalty. The referee did not notice and points were not altered, which lead to the final death match to decide the fate of the party.

Matt from the Syndicate was able to eat 12 Moonpies - 1.5 more than Pirate's Canada in the final battle of the afternoon giving Hoodstock a close and extremely controversial win!

This year on the afternoon of Saturday June 14th 2008 at Fontana's in NYC the battle will continue.... Hoodstock vs Flag Day II !!!!!

Come celebrate the celebration! Be part of the mayhem! Battle the epic battle!!! Beer will be provided by Dogfish Head. Bear Hugs will be provided by Steve and Matt. Canada will provide Beards, Pat will provide surprises. Doug and Meredith with dance your face off. Graham will high five you until his hand is officially crippled. Drink up, Lefty.
