My friends are in the bathroom
Getting higher than the Empire State
The Empire State building isn’t just high; it was once the tallest building in the world. His friends are planning on getting seriously high.
If you’re getting high in the bathroom, you’re usually doing one of 2 drugs. But given that his friends are getting high in the bathroom of a bar, it’s most likely they’re doing cocaine. Hotboxing in there would get you busted and kicked out fast.
