At least for this region, these are legend of the late 70's and early 80's. A band, a keg, cherry incense, black lights, smell of herb in the air and the phrase "the cops are here." I stepped into a time warp on Saturday night. I did receive a formal invite via cellular but entered from the side gate of the house. The front door went unanswered. Only thing missing, was an older brother at the gate on a barstool collecting my $2 to enter. To the left was some band pounding out X's "White Girl." A packed backyard complete with pool, jacuzzi, a separate bar, and adults of many ages. We 30-somethings, were the majority though. Sure, the overgrown grass, dirt patches, Meister-brau keg and cheap lounge chairs were substituted with upgraded surroundings. Far out man, this was a real throwback with better beer, better munchies, better herb and more responsible behavior. The bands kept the spirit, by crappily playing tunes from the era. An absolutely humorous rendition of Eddie Van Halen's "Eruption" was played and was a perfect cap on the night. Are these type of parties going on elsewhere? What are your memories? Most fun I have had in years.
