Another LES Bar-Goer Rescued After Sleepover at Marshall Stack on Rivington Street

Talk about a repeat walk of shame.

In case you missed this … for the second time within nine months, firefighters were tapped to rescue a bar-goer on the Lower East Side who spent the night trapped inside the establishment.

A 23-year-old man dressed in jeans and beige blazer – seemingly ready for the day – emerged from the Marshall Stack on Rivington Street early Friday morning after personally alerting the authorities. According to the New York Post, the over-tired grad student had fallen asleep in the bathroom and awoke to find himself locked behind the gates.

“I was tired and I wanted to leave,” the embarrassed bar patron told the paper about his embarrassing night. “[But] my buddy didn’t want to leave because he was talking to some girl.”

Nevertheless, he kept drinking.

“I’m dead tired, I’ve had like three beers, [and] I wanted to leave,” he recalled.

“I went in [to the bathroom] to take a piss. When I was done, I sat down on the toilet, closed my eyes, and fell asleep.”

It’s also worth noting that twelve-year-old Marshall Stack is currently applying for an alteration to upgrade its wine-beer license to include full liquor. It’ll be interesting to see if this sleepover incident has any effect, despite the approval from Community Board 3 last month. You’ll recall that, shortly after a Jersey girl passed out in the bathroom of Boss Tweed’s from a night of drinking (and was locked there until morning) last summer, the city agencies pooled efforts into a M.A.R.C.H. raid that ultimately sidelined the business for good.
