There are no parties on the hill this year. The big houses are closed to us. And everyone is waiting around to see what everyone else will do. No one is making a commitment for anything.
I went ahead and bought a ticket for Firewater, a four-hour cruise in the harbor, thinking that I could lead by example.
No one followed. Everyone is hoping that something better will come along. They still have faith in the nightlife in this town. Silly boys.
