5. The Drugs
Sure, you don't buy coke anymore, and you quit smoking weed when you had kids. But if someone offers you a bump and a toke, you'll probably damn well take it.
4. The Sex
Ever got laid in a bathroom, at a table, standing up, face to face, skirt hiked, in a crowded bar?
3. The Camaraderie
So you're an outlaw biker, predicate felon, and you hate the police. But when you're elbow to elbow with 'em at the bar, you'll still clink mugs when Lebron James makes a slam dunk.
2. The Music
The only club in Miami with live reggae-salsa, old-school country blues, heavy fucking metal, and street rap all playing live at the same damn time. Also, Iko motherfuckin' Iko.
1. The First Shall Be The Last
Soon enough, Biscayne Bay is going to flood the streets. Even then The Road will serve up food, music, and fun for another hundred years.
