To celebrate Tom’s birthday we surprised him by showing up on the boat where the Slackers would be playing that evening. The boat set off and took us back and forth along the Hudson River. It was a neat grungy boat and the trip was really nice. The Slackers played 2 upbeat sets inside the main deck. The crowd was fun and the band was energized. Jesse even got one of the band members to wish Tom a happy birthday. It was really neat to have the boat sway back and forth as we danced to the music. Afterwards we tossed a Frisbee back and forth across the West Side Highway. Jesse even through a hammer. Yea, we were drunk.
