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.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
