The NJ/NYC/LI Meeting which took place during April '05 came to fruitition when Chicago residents satan165 & ImissMy64oz decided separately they were heading out to the eastcoast for the weekend. satan165 was coming to NJ for his bud's birthday & wanted to extend his stay to meet up with some 40oz Crew, the plans started unfolding & getting kinda big, which prompted ImissMy64oz to book a flight out too! The whole gathering started that Sunday on April 17 in satan165's hotel room in Somerset, NJ! (photo: Drastic Mezures & yours truly)
ImissMy64oz, Drastic Mezures, & White Mike chillin out on the balcony of satan165's hotel room...
Me pretending to flex for the camera...
Beerface, the man who helped me start up what is now the world's largest 40oz collection, made an appearance (but just for this day)!
Once everyone arrived, we took 2 cars over to mecca... my crib... to pay our respects to THE COLLECTION.
In my driveway, L to R: satan165, Shottie, White Mike, Drastic Mezures, me, Beerface, & ImissMy64oz
I only had a couple 40s on hand to share with the crew, so we passed em around... St Ides (a classic ghetto malt) & Dogfish Head Liquor de Malt (a premium limited edition 40 made from fine ingredients & runs about $7 per 40oz)... here Drastic Mezures (who looks like the living dead in this photo) combines the 2 completely different malts into 1 unique experience!
After a quick tour, the crew got to see the goods... ImissMy64oz is takin in the view!
Posing with my Yellow Rat Bastard article/photo in the same spot that photo was taken!

After visiting mecca, we headed back to the Somerset/New Brunswick area & hit up Rutgers' infamous grease trucks for some fat sandwiches!
We also hit up The Hub, one of the few spots in NJ to get after hours liquor... peep White Mike showin off some of his drinks in front of an enormous case filled with ghetto wines!
ImissMy64oz & I each ate 2 fat sandwiches... he wanted to rip open his stomach after that!
I started climbing around on the roof of the hotel, other side of the railing to satan165's balcony... I went into another pitch dark room (their sliding door wasn't locked) & couldn't tell if anyone was sleeping in it or not - luckily it was empty. I also pissed on the roof... I like to mark my territory in public like a dog, don't ask me why.
Day 2 the crew spent in Long Island, White Mike's home turf! First off, I'd like to mention the drive in, satan165 was a maniac... his furious meter was off the charts & I thought we would die. Seriously. Anyway, on a lighter note, we 1st were escorted to the scenic Long Island Sound - L to R: ImissMy64oz, satan165, me, White Mike
Shottie gettin in on the group shot action...
Some crew took part in a little nature smoke...
After the nature visit & beautiful view, White Mike led us to a local joint of his called Tara's. It was a great dive bar with little coupons everytime you ordered a drink where you could get huge discounts/free drinks... a couple of us even got drafts for $0.10! And we also ate like slobs, consuming massive quantities of greasy foodage washed down with many beers, including Rheingold!
Food is bliss.
After Tara's we headed back to White Mike's crib where we got to play with weapons! Dude is a (licensed) gun freak! White Mike & I about to blow one another's skulls off!
Me reppin it Terminator stylezzz in front of his collection!
