Day 3 layday curse

After the bad kharma of day 2 of the OFSC World Series Surfing Splinter Group Cold Water Classic, the Mex was struck down with a curse that saw him heaving his brunch for over 24 hours.  Whilst Spot and The Dude sat up all night drinking the Mex's beer and wine and chewing the fat, all the Mex could do was lie in his tent and grown.  Moose, who was toasting mashmallows for the crew, finally took pity and kindly gave him a drink of water before total dehydration killed him.

Not only was the Mex cursed but so was the whole contest.  The swell dwindled and only a few fat peaks dribbled through while contestants bobbed around the water in wetsuits to suit the cold water in 30 degree heat.  As soon as the contest was called off there was a SUP invation of the fat peaks.

(Spot and Moose find some shelter)
(Just like Capt. Cook - SUP invasion, the day before Invasion Day)
Conditions worsened during the day and the Mex had to pull the pin.  Contestants abandoned the remote west coast site and headed for the big smoke.  The Dude said " I drove non stop for 10 hours with the Mex growning in the back, I thought the journey would never end."  When they got back to civilisation The Good Woman made her universal panacea , vegemite on toast, and the Mex was cured of the curse.  "Thank Huey for the Good Woman" cried the Mex in relief.

I like this place! I love the idea and wish there was a place like this in Astoria, Queens. I am a surfer and found a "real surfer bar" in Point Break NYC. I am kinda jealous ;0PIts filled with surfers, people who like surfers, people who like the beach and people who don't want to live close to town. I really like this place. You know what they have these real Proctor and Channel One surfboards on the wall. It's nice for coming any day of the week and eating a late brunch. The food was outstanding. The brunch and sides were prefect and tasty. It is a perfect "escape" from city living. It is probably one of the only places where you can get a nice frozen pina colada or margarita. The service was on hit. They came up and checked on us so many times and made sure everything was up to par. It gets very active and the bartenders keep everybody having a good time. The bartender was very accommodating. He was nice enough to make a drink, that wasn't on the menu, for me :0) Did I mention the bartenders are nice eye candy. It was amazing to see their “das boot” which is shaped like a boot filled with beer. Don’t get me wrong, I am not drunk…it’s an actual boot shaped beer container ready to be emptied. Try it ..You will love it!! Oh. How can I forget, they even have a wheel o' shots where you just have to spin it and have to drink whatever shot it lands on!! Now call that bar creativity at its best!!! And when I spill a tray full of shots on myself, the bartender so kindly remakes them for me? Good music, too, and the decor helped us weather an otherwise overcast and rainy day. You know that old song "Brandy"? It goes, "Brandy, you're a fine girl, what a good wife you would be. But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea." I believe Brandy works here. No reason, I just do. And that song happens to be a guilty pleasure of mine, so that's a plus in my book. You can simply waltz over to this colorful and warm establishment, enjoy some drinks with friends, and walk home. The bar is right at the center, so you can walk to either side for drinks, and the bartenders are friendly and at your service. There is a variety of seating, good music, and friendly neighborhood people to make your time more enjoyable. Not pretentious, very cozy, I think Point Break is a fabulous place to spend some time with friends.
