Party In The Park

May 5, 2009 at 6:18 pm

Wednesday I decided to go down to Sawyer Point for the Party in the Park. All my friends are starting to be douchebags, so I thought to myself, "Charlie, why not go network and make friends, like Facebook, irl (in real life)?" Since it was a nice night, I thought I would take the new hybrid buses downtown. I also brought along my guitar to practice my scales and just play look cool. My first attempt at making friends included me playing some John Mayer songs on my guitar.—-

As these ladies were listening to me play "Your Body Is a Wonderland," I started to finger bang the strings so hard they broke. I tossed the guitar in the trash and headed over to the bar for some sweet $2 happy hour drinks to calm my nerves and quench my thirst. Once the taste of Bud Light hit my tongue I got all excited and sat down next to some other babes and started to tell them about Cincinnati's abandoned subway system that has a water tube in it.

After explaining what kegel exercises were, I remembered that Party in the Park's happy hour lasted from 5-7 p.m.! So I went from single- to double-fisting for a while and just chilled out listening to the local band 5 O'clock Shadow that covered Stained and Tom Petty. I was rocking pretty hard to the tunes when Jimmy and Alica asked me to be in a picture with them for CiN Weekly.

I was pretty much the third wheel for their date. I also think those Bud Lights were putting my mind in a headlock.

During the break in the Bands, Kiss 107 was rocking the house taking requests. I think I requested Asher Roth "I Love College" like 15 times, and the awesome thing was that they played it every time. After hearing that song repeatedly I was so drunk I blacked out...

In the morning I was kicked back to life by some workers from P&G who were doing some kind of conference meeting on a bike. They gave me a ride all the way back to the bus stop, where I waited for the No. 14 to pick me up and take me home.

Party in the Park is a good place to meet some good people! I hope you go!
