6. Those "drum circles" are just raucous LOUD parties of people banging on bongos.

For the poor folks who actually live there, I am sure they were relieved when this 500-person bongo fest was broken up. This is a very densely populated residential area of apartments and closely stacked houses that abut the beach boardwalk. It is crazy enough during the day with the beach crowd, street performers and trinket sellers, so the residents dearly need some peace and quiet at night.

Living there is a nightmare. I've spent the night in an apartment there. After about an hour, the incessant bongos gave me a splitting headache, not to mention the random screams and sounds of bottles breaking. These " drum circles" are not some political speech event. They appear to me to be nothing but an excuse for drunks to bang bongos on the beach. I couldn't wait to get the fuck out of there.
