THIS WAS AN OLD POST FROM 8/2007, AND SINCE I’M FEENIN’ LIKE JODECI FOR REAL HOT SUMMER WEATHER I THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE!
***also, my blog doesn’t show it on the right hand side…but, the posts actually go back to 2006 so i may just start to re-post more!Â
for the new blog readers, 1992 is a 90’s theme party that my best friend OSCAR and i started in 2006 (pre-90’s retro craze). this very illegal block party was the brain child of 1992 and NEAL SANTOS of TEAMWORKS. neal happened to live on the LES block in which it took place, and since every sunday the stores on that block would move their merchandise to the sidewalk — we masked our party as part of the “street sale”.
if you missed it, here’s your recap. the block party was BUTTERS! yes. the illegal block party continued flawlessly! this super depressed super-intendent tried to rain on the parade and called the cops. after the second time the po-po came to visit, we resorted to plan b…which was placing the speakers out of Neal’s apt which ironically faced the street the block party was on. it’s called the art of getting over…make it happen people!
