July 30, 2011

I have to work late tonight and I have to work tomorrow on Saturday as well. Normally this would be a problem and I’d probably retreat to one of my Fortresses of Solitude, but tonight someone else is going out on the town for me. Two thirds of the BBC (Baltimore Bar Crawlers) are in town this weekend and for once it’s not Gene and Smoopy, it’s Gene and Terry. And as usual, they are on a tear in NYC. They pulled into town in the afternoon and ended up with a 13 hour BBC Bar Crawl Tour of New York City. Here's the itinerary:

  • 1. 1:31 pm—Walters Bar
    2:21 pm—Billy Marks West
    3:34 pm—Skylight Diner
    5:22 pm—Courtyard Ale House - Queens
    7:55 pm—McGuinness's Saloon - Queens
    8:27 pm—Gaslight - Queens
    9:56 pm—Duke's
    11:00 pm—Molly's
    11:59 pm —Blarney Cove
    12:50 am—Blue & Gold
    1:08 am—International Bar
    2:20 am—Maggie Mae's - Queens

And here's the photo documentary sent in by Gene. There's no captions because I wasn't there, view it like a silent movie of the BBC on one of their legendary bar crawls. It starts out in Penn Station and ends in Queens, with all the above bars and side shots in between. Take it away Gene!

What a fantastic journey by the BBC,,, I see Ray's place there (not mentioned), and trying to find the Blarney Cove pic, I think it's right before Ray's. The BBC crew has a very strong constitution going,, not sure I could keep up with them anymore. Really great pics except for that damn PAPAYA place,,,I swear I hate that place,,, see what you did Marty,,,you corrupted the BBC,,,,,lol

I won't make a peep about that inclined-moving-thoroughfare, but Genny? That reminds me of Rochester, Genny is cheaper then tap water there. High ho, high ho, it's off to work Marty goes.

I can go for some Dukes Ribs & there waitresses Right Now ( Yeah there was some Hot waitresses there when I last went & wasn't with ZioumZioum , & maybe she will read this , but I'm almost finished cleaning . ) , they have really Good Rbs , the rest is the same as everyone else !!!

Nice Pic's !!!!

TO : BBC for Helping out a Brother in need .

Marty hope ur not Killing Yourself for a company that has no loyalty !!!!!!! & doing it only for the MONEY ,

@Ummo: No company has loyalty anymore. Hell, even Three's company fired Chrissy. On the other hand, hardly anyone works for free. Even priests get delicious little perks. Au revoir.

@Al: Sorry about the Papaya picture, yes I've corrupted the BBC! And you're right, Gene got a rare inside Blarney Cove shot with the bartender and it's tellingly right below the hot dog shot!

@csp: High ho? There's no need for name calling please! I'm a slut, not a ho. And as far as being high, well, I'll never tell.

@Ummo: Yes, just like the Mothers of Invention, I'm only in it for the money.

THIS weird nature clip is a total CLASSIC!!

Thanks to the BBC for helping Marty out. I don't know how they do it. Makes me tired just thinking of going to all those places. Nice to know they had some eye candy along the way to keep them moving.

@Jaws: That's a great fucking clip! Thanks for sending the link!

@kari: I can't keep up with them either, tonight I'll make it though dinner and then a nightcap and they'll still have hours left to go!

July 30, 2011 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

@JAWS: I saw the ape clip,,,these idiots deserve to get wiped out by the monkey,,,what kind of knucklehead would had a loaded ak47 to a chimp?

July 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAl

@Al: I have always known about man. From the evidence, I believe his wisdom must walk hand and hand with his idiocy. His emotions must rule his brain. He must be a warlike creature who gives battle to everything around him, even himself. Case in point, they gave Jaws an M-16. Check out my new documentary, "Rise of the Planet of the Apes".

real nice tour...a big thanks to 2/3 of the BBC...hoistin' one to GENE and hoistin' one to Terry...some very nice shots in this mix...
Jaws...guess that proves that man or/and beast can use an AK...

It takes only one drink to get me drunk. The trouble is, I can't remember if it's the thirteenth or the fourteenth.

@rr: Indeed, to Gene and Terry, two wonderful fellow! And what a great quote from George Burns, I've never heard that one before!
