Prohibition

Got to work and found out that my companies holiday party in NYC won't be so easy to get to tomorrow.  Those of us on Long Island, about 50 miles from NYC were planning on chipping in for a bus.  Too many people are not interested in a bus, so it looks like car, to railroad, walk from Penn to 3XSQ, to catch a shuttle bus to Chelsea Pier.

I was planning on some pre-gaming in the bus, after-all, prohibition has ended.

This day in history "
The 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is ratified, repealing the 18th Amendment and bringing an end to the era of national prohibition of alcohol in America. At 5:32 p.m. EST, Utah became the 36th state to ratify the amendment, achieving the requisite three-fourths majority of states' approval. Pennsylvania and Ohio had ratified it earlier in the day."

Instead, I may be facing a 2+ hour commute to the party, so that I can hang out for 3 hours, and then a 2+ hour ride home in reverse Shuttle to Penn, wait for LIRR, get in car at who knows what time.  Drive home sober cause I won't be doing too much partying with that kind of commute.

I asked around the office to see if anyone wants to split a car service or limo.  Half of the people I talked to decided 4-5 hours travelling for a 3 hour party, just aint gonna happen.

Think a taste of tequilla is in order.
