Readerpix: Drunks not included 2.0
Hoboken411 reader Matt found out he and some friends were in a picture used here for other purposes last week – and I’m relieved he was a good sport about it!
Hoboken411 reader photo of the day – 3/16/2009
“On Hoboken St. Patrick’s Day, a picture was taken outside of Hoboken High School, and used for a Hoboken411 story on Senior Prep Day. And in that picture, 3 wandering revelers were captured, with a rather funny comment made in the photo: “Drunks not included” (hold mouse over to see pic), with an arrow pointing to the group. I am happy to say that I am one of those random passers-by, along with my friends Tim and Lou. Now this photo has become something of a legend in my circle of friends (many of whom are avid Hoboken411.com readers, which is how we discovered this happy coincidence in the first place).
Anyway, back to my photo submission. This past Saturday (March 14), some friends and I, prompted by nothing more than boredom, decided to stage an impromptu Hoboken bar crawl, stopping only at places off the beaten path (Carpe Diem, DC’s, Mario’s, etc.) During our travels, we found ourselves walking past Hoboken High and the very sign we were randomly photographed in front of a week earlier. So, using only our memory, we tried our best to recreate the photo, with a few difference. We are not wearing green, and we substituted Lou (the short guy in the back wearing the funny hat in the original picture) with our friend Ryan, because Lou wasn’t with us during the bar crawl. So, here it is… our humble attempt to recreate what we thought to be a very funny picture!”
