Making Money on St. Patty’s Parade

3/5/2010:

Beer, commerce, tickets – and bathrooms?

We all know the St. Patrick’s Parade in Hoboken is a big event for (some) people. The fortunate ones are the bar owners, the city (for summons revenue), and some small shops, restaurants, and even street vendors selling fruity flags, hats, beads and other nonsensical items that will end up littering our streets on Sunday.

But what about private residents? This enterprising person is selling one-day passes to their TOILET on St. Patty’s Day!

Not sure about you, but I’d add a disclaimer and take a deposit that if anything breaks or puke is everywhere – they clean it up, or don’t get their money back.

I heard the writer of this ad on the radio. It was all just a joke. But he claims he received many responses.

Homeworld, I wrote the add and was contacted by 1010 and some other people, here are some of the responses I received some serious and some who knew it was a joke, all in all I should have followed through with it. Dear Sir or Madam, I understand you are selling one day memberships to your bathroom. I may be interested in purchasing one or two memberships for myself and a friend. But, first could you kindly answer a few questions. In addition to toilet paper do you also supply ample soap? If yes, what brand? I prefer Dove or Ivory because it’s gentle on my skin. Is there any time limit on the “sessions” when using your facilities? You advertised the facilities as a “bathroom”, therefore, I may desire to take a bath. Is the hot water adequate and plentiful in your facility? Do you also supply bath towels or must I bring my own? Besides the “piss and poop” sessions can one masturbate, menstruate, fornicate, or regurgitate in comfort and privacy in your facility? Your timely response is appreciated. Always, Jack D. Johnson xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Any takers? If there were, 1010 WINS would be interested in talking to you. Call the newsroom 212-315-7090.

Just a quick post-script: this is not a good idea if you are on crutches for some reason.

Let’s face it, this drinking event is never getting cancelled or modified and as such the port-a-potties are mission critical. What an eyesore and blow to our quality of life but it beats getting our homes pissed on I guess.

The town was a disgrace, loaded with drunks. I went to a friends house at 6th and Jackson, and there were drunks drinking and urinating there. Almost a mile from Washington St. Someone in that building was having a party and charging a cover charge of 45 dollars. I don’t know what they were offering. The building looked like a fraternity house. Walking home to the downtown area, I did see the cops doing an excellent job controlling the revelers.
