Where the fuck is summer?

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Not as much fan fare this year with Memorial day kicking off the summer.
2. Ice cream when you are drunk is the jam.
3. Anyone know anything bout them razor clubs? Fucking 42 dollars for some Mach 3s is insane.
4. I am always amazed when people spend $60 at the deli of a supermarket. Like are you feeding a football team?
5. Ever have one of those days where your drink leaks all over your lunch that you made?
6. I am hearing that Chrissys out as Grillos best man. Not through any fault of his own but because the weddings on hold.
7. Do you think that more people would take last minute trips if airfare was cheaper, if you booked day of flights?
8. Air filters for your heating/ac are not cheap.
9. Dot day is less than a week away. Hope it doesn't rain this year. Rumor has it Chris Leaden is gonna show.
10. Man buns are still a thing.
11. Worst part of the summer is no new television shows.
12. Five 12 hour shifts this week. Pray for my sanity - please and thank you.
13. If anyone is in the Hull area today, Jeffrey is putting in an outdoor shower. He could use a hand or 2.
14. It is amazing to me the price of cars now a days.

Please take a moment to remember our fallen soldiers on this Memorial Day.

Bitter Sweet

The 10th and final Mustache pub crawl is in the books. With a little help (or strong arming) from Sarah, Kaitlyn and Kiki we sold all the shirts, most of the koozies and some fake staches to raise $1402.

I rounded up and made the donation this morning for $1500.
I would like to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart that has supported the cause for the last 10 years. What started out as a small idea turned into so much more. Year one the shirts were $10 and I just wanted to see if I could get 40 people to grow mustaches and get together for a Saturday​ afternoon of bar hopping. After the initial turn out ended up being 70 some odd people I figured we had something cooking. We had high of 160 people one year and lows 50. We raised as much as $1900 (that went to the One Fund) and as low as $800 (when we moved it to father's day weekend). Any extra shirts we had left over we donated to the Veterans Association. We had good laughs and made new friends. In the 10 years we did this we only had a few minor hiccups - Bell n Hand, the Charlie Chaplin stache and few people turned away just because they were wearing crawl shirts but we never had any problems. So as we close the book on this weekend and the mustache pub crawl I just want to thank you all again.

I am definitely taking a year off to go to the Kentucky Derby. Maybe in my absence someone else will take up the pub crawl mantle. If not and there is still interest in doing one we can start anew, I'm thinking Wounded Warriors foundation?

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Joe Q is still bat shit crazy.
2. The bars in Quincy center were all very accommodating.
3. Getting shut off at a bar isn't a bad thing. Just means you did work.
4. By the way if I was rude or anything to anyone after Kama lounge. I am sorry and don't remember much.
5. People losing their minds over $10 covers is funny to me.
6. Drunk Derek should never be allowed to order Chinese food. Everyone knows I'm just gonna pass the fuck out.
7. Some people are puke and rally kind of guys, others are fall down guys, while I am a passer outter.
8. Why does Snap chat update every other day now?
9. Fat Belly Deli still has it.
10. Chrissy was losing his shit when he thought Kristin's didn't have Reese's peanut butter cup pancakes anymore. Crisis adverted.
11. Is anyone watching American Gods? Is it worth watching?
12. Friday nights are perfect for couch time.
13. What is your for Memorial day weekend? Are you all heading down the Cape with the Macphails?
14. Nothing sucks worse than running out of propane while cooking on the grill.

Gotta go and do some work.

The final countdown

Man oh man, how time flies when you are having fun. In all honesty I cannot believe it has been 10 years since we started this Mustache Pub Crawl. What started out with me trying to organize 40-50 people on a random Saturday turned into much more. We have had great years where 150 people have shown and others when only 60 have. We have raised over $10,000 in the time we have been doing this and hopefully we can get at least $1500 more this Saturday. All and all I would say it will be a bitter sweet day.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Pretty sure not one person likes to work.
2. I'm amazed when people have never been to Florian hall before.
3. Chrissy loves his fireworks. Huge July 4th bash in Pembroke so he invested in $400 worth of pyrotechnics.
4. I love how I have asked everyone to meet up for a shirt, if they wanted them before the crawl and now they all text me to save them for me.
5. Not a fan of Michelob Ultra.
6. I am looking forward to the Pour yard opening up next to Cagneys.
7. You do not know panic until you have a tick crawling on your skin.
8. What excuse will Dave use for not showing up on Saturday?
9. Nothing worse than a headache that lasts for days.
10. I am not a fan of the new caramel M & M's
11. Jeffrey wants to put a trip to Toronto together, anyone interested?
12. Are you guys practicing your "Let's go Celtics" chants for tonight?
13. All this rain and cold weather is depressing. Bring on the heat.
14. Update from last week - I have heard from Nickerson, she is laying low saving for a condo. Still can't locate Coach K and my Redsox ticket money.
15. A case of Coors light bottles is $26.
16. Think officer Calnan has only a month left in the police academy, then a huge bash.

Alright hope to see you all on Saturday.

Only 12 days away

When is it too early to shave in my mustache for the 10th and Final Mustache Pub Crawl? There is a fine line to tow between creepy/pervert/everyday wear and doing it for a charity. 

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Waking up with a headache is the worst.
2. Cinco de Mayo was a success. Cannot wait till next year's on a Saturday.
3. Sold enough shirts and koozies to pay off the bill, so now everything is for the charity donation.
4. Man people jumping on and off the Red Sox bandwagon is funny. We are only the 2nd week into May people.
5. Going out for lunch but staying out all day is always fun, right?
6. I am not against going out to lunch solo.
7. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 was funny as fuck.
8. What is up with Stop and Shop using those crazy bagging stations now?
9. Has anyone heard from Julie Nickerson? Haven't heard from her so I assume she is in love.
10. Joe Martell didn't realize how good Pearl Jam was till this weekend.
11. Korean BBQ is where it is at.
12. Hey if anyone sees Coach K remind him he still owes me for Red Sox tickets and he hasn't bought a pub crawl shirt yet.
13. Are you officially old when sleeping in means 7:30 am?
14. Do you put chips ON a sandwich or eat them WITH a sandwich.
15. May weather has been depressing.
16. Really who is watching boxing? It is 2017!!

Check ya later...
