Picture of the Day - Schooners July 4th Partay

For the third time out of the past four years, I worked a 12-hour shift (noon to midnight) at Schooners Wharf Restaurant & Bar in Cayucos, CA. This event used to be much more wild and unruly and was once legendary in the early years of Vino Vice as it was notorious for how many people had to be kicked off the property by our guards due to fighting and drunkenness and such. Over time, the ownership has refined the process and now it is a smoothly operating machine sans any notable issues. It is still a circus (in a good way) making it an epic job to annually work as the people-watching is still top-of-the-line but there are no problems of the sort to make working it unpleasant. Each year at about 9:30 p.m. a fireworks show launched from the Cayucos Pier captivates a huge crowd who comes from all over the Central Coast (and Central Valley) to watch it. Part and parcel with that is an epic party at Schooners where a heavily local and youngish crowd come to have fun. Above is a view from below of the second-floor deck crammed with patrons watching the fireworks show. Go HERE to sample one of the tracks got had this establishment rocking.
