Trash 5-Year Anniversary @ Rififi

Last night I decided to go against doctors orders and head out. I felt like shit but I really couldn't justify missing the anniversary party of Trash. We got to Rififi around 1AM or so and walked into the new Rififi. You see it's been under construction for the past few weeks. The first thing I noticed was the bar was on the wrong side of the room.

Aside from that I didn't notice much difference and then it dawned on me. The fucking front bar is 1/3rd smaller then it used to be! Most people go to Rififi to dance in the back but I always preferred the front. Now it's so fucking tight in there you can't move, plus all the couches are gone. Where the bar used to be there is now an enclosed hallway leading to a second exit - which I'm sure we can thank the city for.

After pushing my way threw the mob scene up front I made it to the back room. There was an odd odor in the room that I couldn't put my finger on. It wasn't BO or anything like that, maybe it had to do with the renovation. Anyway, they did manage to enlarge the backroom. That's great for most of the people who go there but for me, not so much.

But I'm not going to talk about my dislike of the renovations. Let's talk about the 5-year anniversary party. When I made it to the back Bronques was spinning with a little help from Jess. The dance floor and stage were completely packed and everyone was having a good time. It was honestly one of the best crowds I've seen in there and that's saying something.

There were a slew of photographers there all taking a shitload of pics - Ambrel, Bronques, Nicky Digital, and random people with fancy SLRs. It was quite a scene and everyone there knew it. Everyone was dressed to impress, which is not typical of Trash. Normally it's more of a jeans and t-shirt crowd - granted those are skinny jeans and old ratty rock n' roll t-shirts. Last night however was a little more fashionable but that's to be expected at an anniversary party.

As I said I was under the weather and so was my girlfriend so we decided after about an hour and a half to hit the road. The party was still going strong but I was just not in the mood, which really fucking sucked. I knew I missing out on an excellent time.

As I said there were a ton of photographers there so I didn't really take many pics at all. I'll update this with links to the photo blogs as they go online.
