Next time, get a permit to sell alcohol.

I was the emperor of parties.  I thought no one could stop my ambitions, but then, at Waterloo...
Elba Ontario is like an hour away.  This could be great.

I watched that entire goddamn series on Netflix until about 3 episodes from the end when I realized it wasn't going to actually give any answers or have a resolution. F*ck everybody involved in that show.

I want a beer now.

No, next time don't promote your illegal event on Facebook.  What an idiot.

Gather round the St Paddy's tree and let your dad tell you the story of "How the cops stole St Patricks day.".

So did they send these 2,200 cans to the stationhouse, Duffy?

Well, I guess that means it will be a sober holiday for all in that area then.

...right?

What?

we were listening in on the scanners when the channel reserved for drug cops became active Saturday afternoon. The amount of effort and keeping officers on rotation for surveillance was nuts, including one point where a replacement coming in around 7p was advised it'll take about another 3 hours for the telewarrant to come through.

Serves the kids right for posting to Facebook.

/lives down the street from the upcoming gong show at the beer tent today, hopefully won't be as stupid as what happened at Funshawe.

Fark handle?

I apologize, that's just how I celebrate my birthday! ;-)

Someone help a Farker out.  How many beers would that be in America?  I always get messed up by the conversion rate.  (Though fortunately, nearly all the strip clubs accept American money, which makes it easier.)

Yep, all 900 of them.

There's a Rob Ford joke in here somewhere ....

Was this a house party? Where the fark to you store 4400 cans of beer?
 
2014-03-17 08:02:09 AM
they also seized Phil Collins and his dirty burger van.

When I was a young lad throwing parties at my house and needed to charge people I'd put a sign on the door.

FREE BEER!

Never had a problem. But then again the cops never showed up because I'm not a complete moran.

A racist attempt to prevent the Irish from celebrating a proper St.Patrick's day.

A co-worker stated, that after one St. Patrick's day parade, he was walking down a street in Chicago's Loop.  He happened to look down an alley, to see a ginger haired girl, decked out in Catholic high school garb, leaning against a wall and puking.  His helpful comment to her was, "Having fun, are we?", as he walked by.

/Blew chunks myself, in an alley in the South Loop, after a usual Friday "unwinding" session.  Farking tequila!!  Liquid shiat!  Have never been able to stomach it since an out of control birthday party in college.
//So why did I drink it, again?  Because I'm stupid, that's why.  Anymore questions?

I lived at Waterloo Co-Operative Residence Inc while at school, and ran keg parties there.  I am not getting kicks from this article at all.  Someone just lost a whole OSAP payment...

Cans?

I'm a home brewer and just scored 4 torpedo kegs and two1/2 barrels for free. Woot

RockofAges: vudukungfu: they also seized Phil Collins and his dirty burger van.

Phil has gone to eat the big cheeseburger in the sky, mate. It's all up to Jacob and Tom Collins now.


I'll miss his nervous ructations.
 
2014-03-17 08:52:08 AM
It would have been a lot cheaper to just get 27 kegs...

When you start selling tickets to an event serving alcohol you're asking for a lot of work. You need permots for the liquor, for the party itself, you need trained servers, you need all kinds of other things depending on the size of the party. Hell, it wouldn't hurt to buy insurance just for the night.

That's about enough fuel for a good George Zimmerman thread. They oughta' be shot.

You know the tune. Feel free to sing along.

4,400 beers on the wall
4,400 beers
Take one down and pass it around
4,399 beers on the wall.

Shouldn't they have waited until they actually sold the beer before they confiscated it? Where is the proof?  Are the laws different in Canada?

What alcohol did they sell?

Also, this...

Did you get your kegs from Gold Crown?  Somewhere deep in my lizard brain I can still taste that swill.

\might have attended one of yr keggers when I wasn't studying like a sucker

Isn't beer really expensive in canada?

At nattypack bottom of the barrel prices that is around 3,000$.  Ouch.
 
2014-03-17 04:29:10 PM
The beer is free. The $10 entrance fee is to defray the cost of the bag of chips.

Pretty much this... and don't freaking advertise it on Facebook!  I know a guy who ran what essentially was a speakeasy.  Its not something you go babbling about to everyone, everywhere.

From there and from Formosa.  Equally swilly.  I miss keg parties.  Hard to do and not feel aged after university.

But garbage can punch parties are still OK?

/Drank A LOT of HPLC grade EtOH at the University up the street.
