Friday Superlatives: The Best, Worst and Weirdest of the Week

adultsonly_final.gifMost Exciting Nightlife News of the Week for People Over the Age of 27: There's a new party launching next week at Louie & Chan called "Adults Only," courtesy of former Six Six Sick girl Feng-Feng Yeh and friends, targeted to the late twenties/thirtysomethings crowd. Per Yeh: "We're kids from the old New York scene in our late twenties to thirties who have seen a lot in nightlife.  We wanted to do this party because there is such a gap that needs to be filled in Manhattan. All the cool parties are in Brooklyn and/or for college kids.  We wanted to bring a rawness, originallity, diversity, and newness to breathe life back into downtown Manhattan." Can't. Wait. The party kicks off next Friday with DJs Dubble Dutch, Morgan H, Jess Blaze, Diamond J B2B,  and F2. Admission $10 at the door (Free w/ RSVP before 12AM) Adultsonlynyc@gmail.com. --Elizabeth Thompson
