Bringing Back The Cup!

In the early 90's, I was invited down to Long Beach Island to spend the weekend with some friends. They had a summer place in Beach Haven, and were nice enough to open their beach house to me. Actually, they didn't have to open the house, just the driveway. I used to come down in my father's van, which had a couch that folded into a bed, and four captain's seats in the front that could be positioned into a kind of living room/salon area. So the van was my bedroom.
They had a refrigerator with a beer tap on it, so the cold beer was always flowing. To keep things clear, they kept a sharpie near the cups, so you could write your name on your plastic cup. I'm not a fan of drinking out of plastic, so I decided I needed a cup of my own. On my next trip down, I went to the Ron Jon Surf Shop and bought THE CUP.
For many years, I would kick off the summer by bringing THE CUP back to LBI.
But that house has dissipated, and I have relocated my summer activities to the Hamptons. At some point, I seem to have lost THE CUP.
Well, two nights ago, I was excavating a niglected part of my house, and I uncovered THE CUP. Tears welled in my eyes as I remembered all the good times and good friends that I associate with THE CUP. How I long to bring THE CUP back to LBI. Oh well, I guess it'll have to settle for the Hamptons.
PS: I dont' think they make THE CUP anymore...

It Went Well

The Annual Richter Brothers Purim Party went particularly well.
Click here for a requestable song list. Soon I will post an analysis of the songs requested.
For now I would like to thank Joe and Saul Richter and Adam Smoler for giving me the opportunity to DJ the best purim party in town.
If anyone has any pictures from the party, please email me.
