Bruh, I am the center of the Wrigleyville universe.
If I go, it would be like the sun disappearing or something.
A Prince of Wrigleyville. Josh, tell me a story about your birthday last year, and maybe it will entice people to come this year.
Well, around 4 in the morning, I was mackin on this chick at Nick's Uptown, and her boyfriend shows up. Some hipster dude, with glasses and a mustache. You know, the kind of dude without a job. Fuckin loser.
so he's all, excuse me, but you're in my seat, and I'm all like, no dude, I'm just awesome. And he's all like, Death Cab, or this and that, so Me and Travis drag his ass out, cuz I know the bouncer, he's cool with me, and we throw him out.
Cuz, bro...it's my birthday.
Woah dude. This seems like an awesome party!
so Travis and I do some more shots
and the girl...leaves!
I was all, we did you a favor!
So we go back out, the dude is still there. Waiting for her. So we both punch him in the face.
Josh. Did this really happen?
I think so, I got the police report around here somewhere.
Ok, ok. Sorry to doubt you.
So give me a brief rundown of what is happening this Sunday.
Its ok. Lots of people can't believe the awesome
Well, I'll be there around 6, the bros may be coming a little later after volleyball.
I'm gonna get some food, cuz they got a pretty decent menu, bruh.
After I fill up, gonna order some grape bombs to start, you know, for vitamins. Then they got pitchers, bro!
Like the only Wrigley bar that does without paying $20!
Do they have chicken wings?
Fuck yeah they do!
Fuckin awesome ones!
Then, when the time's right, we're going either to Uptown Lounge or the Admiral. Get some lap dances
Hottest dancers in the city there.
My sister works there.
Yeah, I know
Ok, well I can't wait to see you on Sunday night!
Me too, bro! Drink alot of water this week!
Any last thoughts for the public?
Life isn't a race. It's a Vaughn-a-thon.
Fuck yeah, dude.
