The Big Crapple

I made the trek to NYC for Back to the Banks and Manny Mania. It amazes me how late everyone in New York stays out. I would be a complete pile of shit if the bars stayed open until 4 or later. It's not often that I hear last call these days but it's always a reminder that I should get home and go to bed. When that happens a couple hours later, that's ridiculous. My camera didn't make it out of my pocket as much as it should have. One of the major undocumented occurrences was seeing my old friend Tom Gilmour. Further weekend plans to meet up with Tom were spoiled by trying to pack too much into a short stay. Next time Tom! In summary, I saw a lot of skating, I pushed around the city a lot, drank some expensive cheap beers, stole Pat's bed, saw old friends, and went to a nice part of New Jersey (which I didn't know existed).

Pat's self inflicted mullet.

Fucking Yuji was there! That was a nice surprise upon arrival. The fact that he and 3 other Japanese dudes were staying at Pat's was not a nice surprise.

Just play where's Waldo with Yuji's hand. Nice work!

So many kids at Back to the Banks.

This is a miss of a rad trick that Yuji was trying. I got the real deal on film.

We came across these bagpipers while skating by Wall St. I was wondering what the fuck it was all about. It was a wedding procession! Damn.
