I'm figuring about half my co-workers will be hoarse and the other half hungover, and all of them smiling until we have to actually DO something...

My fiancee just called me from the Carnegie Museum in Oakland and said it's ridiculous down there. Also, something about shots fired on the 500 block of Forbes. That's Forbes and Wightman.

I meant 5000. Which also is not Forbes and Wightman. I lose!

They were setting off fireworks in Oakland. Maybe that was it?

Why can't people just run around and yell and dance?

Because people are dumb, stupid, and unable to control themselves.

Bloomfield had a moderately friendly, but very dense, crowd all down Liberty.

I went to Forbes and Murray where it was an organized riot. Every time the walk signal would happen, people would rush into the streets, hug, celebrate, and then when it went back to the do not walk signal, people would rush to the sidewalk so cars could pass. It was kinda funny. Nothing was set on fire and no one was hurt.

I was in the same place. It was fun, but not destructive. It helps that Squirrel Hill isn't filled with drunk college students. :)

Just returned home from several neighborhoods. What I saw:

Squirrel Hill: Happy people at the corner of Forbes and Murray, with a smaller cluster at Forbes and Shady. No destruction that I saw.

Bloomfield: The streets were (mostly) cleared by the time I passed through, but there appeared to be remnants of a burned couch (smashed and charred wood, a lone cushion) on Liberty near the Italian grocery.

Oakland: Oh, Oakland. There were dumpsters in the middle of the street near the law school. They were burning and burned for a long time, until a fire truck finally arrived and put out the fire. The obnoxious chicks up in the towers were dumping water out of their windows on the crowd, and doing this pretty steadily. But the worst (IMHO) things that I saw were the bus stop at Hillman Library, completely destroyed -- flattened to the ground -- and several windows at Hillman Library (along Forbes Avenue) smashed, with faux-anarchist graffiti ("riot," etc.) spray painted on the wall. Want to smash the state? A fucking LIBRARY is not the place to start. Douchebags. :(

I shot much footage and will be working to upload it to my personal LJ in the next 24 hours or so.

When I was underage I didn't know many people (underage) who drank and/or got loaded at bars. I'm by NO means defending a vendor who breaks those laws or people who do retarded things like destroy public property regardless of where/how they got loaded ... but I did my fair share of underage drinking when I went to Pitt, and none of it happened in a bar. Just sayin'.
