To any of my longtime readers this official "Party Smart" report will come as no surprise, since my Party House of the Weekend installments over the past two years have slowed so dramatically I should rename it Party House of the (every other) Month.
And since my monthly page views continue to be as high as ever the P.T. Barnum in me couldn't care less.
But the crusading journalist in me is overjoyed.
Ironically the Select Board gets this presentation on Monday night, the first day of classes at UMass. They will also be discussing recreational marijuana.
No doubt the Select Board will be considering ways to both limit and slow down the establishment of recreational pot retailers in town.
Too bad because if we could get the college aged youth to switch from alcohol to pot the rowdy party house or Blarney Blowout type episodes will diminish even more.
Either way, the town and University are winning the war on rowdyism. I'll drink, err, smoke to that!
