Newest Hotspot in NY: Some Dude's Apartment

With a headline like that, you just have to read on. Which is what I did when I saw it on Gawker.com, my favorite snarky blog that concentrates largely on the Big Apple and passing celebrities.

Here's just a piece of the report:

"Over the last couple of weeks Mike's apartment -- it has no other title -- has hosted rockers like Guns 'n' Roses and Sebastian Bach of Skid Row and the soul singer Daniel Merriweather. An after party for the third anniversary of The Box (where a transsexual threw up on Susan Sarandon) came complete with boxers, debutantes, strippers and models. Promoters from Avenue, 1OAK and Greenhouse bring their crowds here in a steady stream, for pre and post club debauchery. As many as 150 people have crammed into the space.

"It happened because Mike has worked in the restaurant industry for nearly a decade. While developing a new nightclub project over the last few months he accumulated some fairly unorthodox nightlife friends -- who eventually started hosting impromptu parties at his place. 'I get text messages and phone calls whenever anyone wants to bring a crew through,' he explains."

It's about as offbeat as they come. Treat yourself by clicking here for the full story.
