47. Because Anyone Can Have Their Fifteen Minutes

Even This Guy.

Charming his way into the public eye (and inadvertently living many a closing-time bargoer’s fantasy), Kyle Hausmann was accidentally locked into Williamsburg’s Trophy Bar this past May after falling asleep in a bathroom. Upon waking, the Harvard grad, age 24, spent the next several hours trying to escape and surfing the Web on a laptop left under the D.J. booth (he said he didn’t feel like drinking any more). Googling “what to do when you’re locked in a bar” proved ineffective. He was discovered the next morning at 8:30 by one of the bar’s owners and became briefly famous when a Times reporter chronicled his adventure. “There was some mean blogging and the like in the immediate aftermath,” he says, “but the owners [of Trophy Bar] have been really nice. When I go there now (he held his 24th-birthday party at the bar) they all shake my hand.”
