Ghetto-ass party stores have existed since the dawn of time, it's a known fact.
Anyway, there's some stiff competition for the title this year. Some big-name players. Let's take a look at the contenders...
Bere Store, Franklin & Jefferson
Spike n' Mikes, Fulton & Jefferson
Family Pantry, Stocking? Wessiiiide
Lucky's, Division and Weston
Morton Party Store, Monroe
Party World, Alpine
Big Man's? Fulton
I will visit each of these establishments, discretely or indiscreetly take photos and gather reconnaissance.
Not totally sure how to decide the "winner." I suppose by closely monitoring my own level of revulsion, culture-shock or nervousness for my safety and at the end deciding which visit left the deepest emotional scars? Truth is, I enjoy ghetto stuff. Maybe the winner is whichever place I feel the most at home? I don't know, I'm making this shit up as I go. I seem to end up frequenting shady party stores anyway, why not make a project out of it.
I think it would be more fun if I can figure out how to create an online pole and let people cast votes.
Let The People democratically decide which G.R. party store sucks the worst!
Somebody's going to win though and the prize is being secretly mocked on the internet.
I think the first one I'll visit this week is Family Pantry. Stay tuned......
