Every year, my friend Val throws a party for Endymion. She lives on Orleans, so you can see the whole parade from the roof outside her bedroom. There's tons of booze and good food. You should really try to make it this year; its the best way to see the parade and usually a pretty good time. Yeah, I know its the trashiest parade. I know you barely know Val. To be honest I only really see her once a year. Its cool though; she loves that everyone comes out."
