Tumbling into Passerby late night is like showing up at a friend-of-a-friend's party. You don't know what to expect, but you know you're going to have an interesting time. What isn't there to love about a bar in the middle of nowhere with a blinking floor? You feel transported into an alternative parallel Passerby-Universe here where the Andy Warhol crowd is framed in a Saturday Night Fever setting. Or maybe there's a patron belting out The Stones in full Mick-drag, using the bar as a catwalk. Or there's an art exhibit in the back room (or not). You really can't ask for more than that. Good New York fun.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
