Remember "My Super Sweet 16" on MTV, which showed the world the luxurious excess of six-figured birthday parties for young adults? The show that made you feel horrendous for having your party at a local Elks Lodge and having your parents gift your uncle's 1998 Dodge Neon to you instead of a new BMW like they get on MTV?
Sure, there was a bit of inherent jealousy in watching the show, but there was also a sense of awe at the sheer scope and audacity of these parties.
Which brings us to David Cohen's Bar Mitzvah.
In celebration of his becoming a man, David, a hockey player and a dedicated puckhead, evidently wanted a hockey-themed party. So David's family held his Bar Mitzvah at Palm Beach Ice Works in West Palm Beach, Fla.
On the ice.
Check out this "official teaser" from Timeline Video Productions Inc.:
Wow, did that look awesome. The on-ice chair dance should be a mandatory part of every Cup celebration.
Vodka ice luges for the 'rents, ice skating around the dance floor, the Bobby Orr photo, the entire thing taking place on the rink … and to think, our threshold for a successful Bar Mitzvah used to be a decent party favor and if they avoided playing "The Electric Slide."
Mazel tov young David, and congratulations for not holding some kind of meshugana basketball party.
