St Patricks Day Parade Hoboken (Debauchery rehearsal)

The parade is held a few weeks early every year in Hoboken - New Jersey, since the main event in New York City on March 17th overshadows everything else.  I got to take part in the parade this year which was a blast.  The bars open at 10am and charge $20 entry and the lines go around the block so we bailed out of the parade early and crashed a party complete with beer keg and games of beer pong.  There is a really heavy police presence with a zero tolerance policy towards drinking or peeing outside or in a non designated spot. $2,000 fine if caught.  Some enterprising local put up a sign (see pic below) offering toilet facilities for just u$d10!
 Gotta Pee? $10 please!

Americans love their parades, and their bands. $10 for a pee? That's a reasonable incentive to hold it in I guess.

Parades are always nice but $10 to pee is funny. Someone might be so drunk they actually pay.

@ Baino: Did you see yer man in '127 hours' drank his?

@ Kirk: Welcome - I'd pay that for a #2 if it was an emergency but not a #1
