[Interviewer] What was your favorite birthday?
Oh, my favorite birthday,
like my favorite birthday party or my favorite just time?
[Interviewer] Your favorite day
that happened to be your birthday.
Oh, when I turned 30,
I threw myself a great birthday party at a Swat Bar,
which is a bar in Chinatown that's above a bus stop
that there's buses leaving every hour on the hour
going and coming from Atlantic City,
so the bar is just there
for people who are serious gamblers.
And I asked them,
Is there a way to just shut down the bar,
'cause I like the bar, it's a weird bar
and they have a kind of amazing karaoke system
that they can activate at anytime.
And they said, Well, we can't,
there's a few regulars that will be there.
So those men were there on my birthday
and then all my friends were there.
And it was one of those great birthdays
where people woke up in places
that they didn't know how they got there.
They didn't remember the night, someone got a concussion.
[Interviewer] It was a proper party.
It was a good run
yeah, and it was like an open bar with like cheap alcohol,
which is just maximum fun and danger.
