It’s Our Party and You’ll Drink if You Want to

Posted on: June 27th, 2011 at 1:00 pm by

As some of you may know, July marks the third year of Bowery Boogie’s existence. This last year has been huge for us and we’ve been trying to figure out how we can thank everyone who has sent us tips, linked to our stories, read the site, quoted us in magazines, bought advertising, and even invited us to be extras on TV shows.

Come party with Bowery Boogie from 6:30 PM -9:30 PM on July 13, 2011 at Motor City. 127 Ludlow Street.

Here’s what we came up with: we’re throwing a party at Motor City and we want you to come have a drink with us. The first one is on the house. All you need to do is mention the magic word “BOOGIE.” If you find us inside the bar, the magic words are probably also “I’ve been reading this site so long I feel like I know you.”

DJ’ing for the evening will be Jenny Penny. All the other information you need::
Date: July 13
Time: 6:30 PM- 9:30 PM
Where: Motor City. 127 Ludlow Street
Magic Word to Get Drinks: BOOGIE
RSVP: On our Facebook event page if you feel like it and don’t want to forget

And one more thing… Here’s a printable version of the party flier. I, Dave, will personally give $50 in cash to one (1) person who prints it out, puts it in the most creative spot, and sends me a picture of it. Email it, tweet it to @boweryboogie, whatever. I’ll pick the best entry by the night of the party.

Hope to see you there!

If, in the early ’80s, Toyo Tsuchiya’s ambition was to be remembered as a serious New York City documentary photographer, he could not have picked a more overlooked and neglected piece of landscape than the Forsyth and Rivington Street area, between Delancey and Houston.

175 Ludlow Street Sells to NJ Steel Supplier

Lately, real estate is trading rather briskly in the confines of Hell Square. At least four area buildings sold since last summer. Time to add another onto the heap. Word crossed our desk this week that 175 Ludlow Street, just south of Houston, likewise changed hands. Residents there received a notice from the new ownership […]

Health Department Shutters ‘The Skinny’ on Orchard Street

It’s lights out for The Skinny bar on Orchard Street. Nearly three months after pissing off (or, on) Hell Square with its Christmas “Jingle Hell’s” holiday stunt, the rowdy nightclub was subject to a city inspection yesterday. The Department of Health came down to 174 Orchard Street and ordered the establishment shut. The requisite yellow […]

First Rendering of the 14-Story Hotel Rising at Vacant Eldridge Street Lot

What the neighborhood doesn’t need is another large-scale hotel. But that’s precisely what’s happening at 79 Eldridge Street, where construction last week commenced on a new context-killing fourteen-story lodge. And now we have our first sight of what to expect from this long-vacant lot. It’s amazing how these illustrations completely gussy up neighborhoods to make […]

The Neon Lights of Sunshine Cinema Have Gone Dark

The Sunshine Cinema on East Houston is one step closer to its grave. While the brickwork of the building remains bathed in orange glow, the marquee lettering was not as lucky. As of this week, its token neon signage has gone dark. Shadows are now cast on the sidewalk below. Demolition is nigh. This latest action […]
