Imagine you were one of Miamis original cocaine cowboys, a man infamous for having transported by air, sea, and street $2 billion worth of Colombian powder into the United States. How would you choose to celebrate your birthday? Excessively, right? Surrounded by naked ladies, loaded weapons, and a huge sampling of your own product, right? Dead wrong. And thats why you are not and never will be Mickey Munday.
If you had any brains at all, youd keep your party action clothed, unarmed, and sober. Youd organize something modest, like Mickey Mundays Birthday Bash at Tobacco Road this Saturday. Youd invite a few or several hundred adult friends and book a couple or 20 live bands. Youd start things at a decent hour, around 9 p.m., and youd charge an affordable entry fee, say ten bucks. Its the games greatest rule: Do not attract undue attention. Or, as Mr. Munday says, Why do you want to advertise yourself? Keep it low-profile. Thats how a true coke kingpin parties.
