Oh, when I turned 30,
00:19
I threw myself a great birthday party at a Swat Bar,
00:24
which is a bar in Chinatown that's above a bus stop
00:29
that there's buses leaving every hour on the hour
00:32
going and coming from Atlantic City,
00:35
so the bar is just there
00:37
for people who are serious gamblers.
00:40
And I asked them,
00:41
Is there a way to just shut down the bar,
00:43
'cause I like the bar, it's a weird bar
00:45
and they have a kind of amazing karaoke system
00:47
that they can activate at anytime.
00:49
And they said, Well, we can't,
00:51
there's a few regulars that will be there.
00:53
So those men were there on my birthday
00:56
and then all my friends were there.
00:58
And it was one of those great birthdays
01:00
where people woke up in places
01:03
that they didn't know how they got there.
01:05
They didn't remember the night, someone got a concussion.
01:08
[Interviewer] It was a proper party.
01:10
