Reports From The Field

It's not all Boom Boom Room for DBTH. We do like to check out lots of places in New York and keep your abreast of what we are seeing out there. Enjoy our Reports from the Field!

  • We checked out Le Fooding at PS 1 on Friday night. Amazing art, pretty well organized, great tunes by Paul Sevigny, horrible party. Why is it that New Yorkers will stand in line for up to 30 minutes just for a bite of food? We will never understand it. The long lines turned what could have been a fun night into a snooze fest, with everyone waiting for food and not trying to enjoy themselves. Additional negative was the booze situation. It was plentiful, but if you were in the VIP room and had 3 drink tickets and wanted 3 glasses of wine or 3 glasses of champagne, it became a capital offense. Each ticket was supposed to be for a specific drink, with bartenders fearing for their job if they were to break policy. Newsflash - no one is digging through your garbage to make sure every torn ticket in your bucket says wine. Just give us the drink.
  • Post Le Fooding, we headed to the ping pong club Spin New York for the Phoenix/Passion Pit afterparty. Hello shit show. A combination of overzealous PR and security made this party a serious dud, and we exited stage right in under an hour. Take some advice from DBTH - if there are 300 people in the back room while the main room is empty, perhaps you should hold the party in the main room. One and done for Spin.
  • We've always wanted to drink serious cocktails above a fast food burrito chain, so we decided to check out Su Casa. Big. Mistake. What we thought was going to be a tapas and Mexican theme cocktail bar was like a frat party. We descended the stairs and discovered abundance of people poorly dancing to bad hip hop. 45 seconds later, we were out the door. It may be a new record of time spent in a venue, so congrats to Su Casa for that.

@ha! - jealous of those GWU kids pulling in more than you even w/o mom and dad's help? I realize they keep popping up as ur boss in the workplace, sad....

...and for the record Paul Sevigny is the most talentless fall-down drunk in NY! Poor sis.
