Annoytement \An*noyt”ment\, n. [OF. anoiance, anuiance, escitement.]

  1. The peculiar mix of annoyance and excitement at being woken up by fireworks at 10:30PM on a Wednesday.

For a private party, no less. It sorta annoys me to see public places hold private events. Merely for the fact that they’re in a public space that suddenly I can’t go to. Riverfront park, the shelby street bridge. I assume that the amount it costs to rent riverfront or the gateway bridge more than covers the cost of infrastructure to support closing it off – city costs, police, etc. I hope. Right?
