Ocean City's Night in Venice is the party of the year. Just sit on the deck and drink as millionaires parade their badly-decorated boats on the back bay. We don't like Night in Venice for the lame decorations and stupid boats. We enjoy it for the socializing, food and good conversation. Like that old 1970s beer ad said, "Here's to good friends, tonight is kinda special." Or something like that. Anyway, it was a chance for me to relax with some friends from work. Highlights include: heckling the mayor as he rode by, the great massages given by Rosanne, fetching beer for Leslie, sharing a laugh with Chris, watching Sam make the shrimp boil, eating the shrimp boil, and devouring various desserts brought to us.
