Friday night we had our 2nd Annual 2BD Fall Booze Cruise. Weather wise, it was an impeccable fall evening to coast along the Hudson river and point out how cool the Empire State Plaza looks at nighttime. This was the first 2BD booze cruise that the weather completely cooperated for and I’m here for it…
We had an awesome DJ (Intell Hayesfield), delectable cooking from our own Bachelor Chop & Defazios, and a solid crowd who helped raise a few hundred for the good boys at Mohawk Hudson Humane Society.
Good times were had by all, except for about three people…
Although I was completely satisfied with the turn of events, I can’t say I’m not disappointed in the fact we did not sell out. We were about 30 tickets short of that benchmark, thus pushing Taylor to fulfill her promise. As you may remember, she promised she’d jump in the Hudson (the dirty part, not the good part) if we were to sell out. This is significant because is an activity that goes against pretty much all of her standards and it would have been a delight to see/film that.
However, it would have raised a few more eyebrows when this headline broke at 8AM the next morning:
2. Sureet’s Friend Josh
Our former squad member Sureet, who is now currently a half-assed squad member, made the life choice to skip his inaugural booze cruise to go to his “cousin’s” birthday party in Long Island. Can you think of a worse alternative than driving 5 hours to hang out on Long Island? I can’t.
Sureet later apologized and said the party was not worth skipping the booze cruise for. So I hope his cousin reads this and I hope he does what he can to mend back the burnt bridge of his friend, Josh who jumped ship before it even took off after learning of Sureet’s absence.

3. Faceplant girl
The only person who may really not have enjoyed the cruise was who we will dub Faceplant Girl. The dutch apple has 2 flights of metal stairs approximately 12 stairs deep covering probably a 10 foot incline. One booze cruiser, towards the end of the night (many buttons deep) fell forward down the entire staircase, absorbing the fall on the bottom few stairs exclusively with her face. The forecast for her face as we knew it and teeth as we counted them, was not good. But the Dutch Apple did a great job handling her and fortunately all was well by the end of it. Her friends reached out and apologized for going all buttons deep.
Good news. Thanks to the Dutch Apple for a great time and everybody who came out to support 2BD or just because you wanted to get drunk on a boat with your friends, whatever. One thing is for certain though, you do not ever, I repeat, EVER, need to apologize for going all buttons deep. That’s just part of the game.
See you all in the Spring.
