4,200 Extremely Hungover People Will Watch Bloomberg’s Third Inauguration Tomorrow


Tomorrow afternoon when you wake up and start playing that CSI: My Hangover game, just count your blessings that you're not one of the people forced to attend Bloomberg's anticlimactic and low-key third inauguration ceremony at noon:

"About 4,200 people are expected to attend the one-hour ceremony, in which Mr. Liu and Mr. de Blasio will also deliver addresses. The attendees will receive commemorative biodegradable mugs (stainless steel was so 2006), paid for by the mayor and filled with apple cider."

If Bloomberg really loved New Yorkers, he would spike that cider with rum.
