1985 was the first kegger - no fancy-ass name, no signage. Just a bunch of thirsty idiots who put Hobart Lane on the map. I lived in the center Gilreath building with Fabs (Springfield), Schmen (Lexington), Bret (Longmeadow) and Corey (Swampscott). The 3 am stereo blast of choice was usually the Stones (Can't You Hear Me Knockin') or Springsteen (Rosalita), or was it Allman Bros. (Whipping Post)? At the first bash, we rolled an old Toyota over in the parking lot. It was owned by our local Vietnamese coke dealer named Hu. That first night there was one tragedy - our 4-footer (you know what I mean- you needed 2 people to operate it) was stolen! Yeah, stolen...I know! We experienced alot of funny shit in that place. Met my wife in Barsie's. Got kicked in the head repeatedly by the rugby frat (yeah - the whole frat) on the ground in the alley next to Time Out. Beta Kapa Doucha Bagas or something like that. Ate shrooms at Southwest block party - fuckin mental. Time of your life kid!
I hesitate to admit I was a founding member of this.. 1988 was the first year - Chuck, Dan, Chris, Paul and Jeff - Gilreath Manor, center building, 2 apt from the right..
I lived on Hobart back in 74-76 when it was a nice family place and the students who lived there placed loud music. I wish i was there now..
Hobart Lane is the greatest nostalgia ever. I stay up tooo late at night thinking about how fucking awesome the times there were.
Bonfire in 1988 too. Cant remember much to many old mils
So you should all know who you are and what did to create the memories of THE 40 HOBART LANE - thank you all so very much!
Theres basically a million other people to thank on here but this site is not letting me do it.
With the class of 2010 graduating over a month ago, I felt like it was finally time to give the people above a big heartful thanks.| 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 | Add Message
