After concentrating our efforts last week on the under-the-radar places in the city that the cool kids frequent, we were, time and time again, brought back to one of our favorite hot spots of yore: Bungalow 8. Bungalow 8 was the inspiration for our site's theme, and so, you can imagine, we wanted to give its reincarnation effort our best. We asked our friends for their favorite Bungalow 8 memories, and, offered some of our own:
- The Bungalow 8 Reincarnation
- Bungalow 8: Our Most Candid Reminiscence Yet
- Send Us Your Favorite Memories of the Bungalow 8 Reincarnation
- Bungalow 8 Reincarnation: Memory Lane
- Bringing Back Bungalow 8: Zelda's Reign

There's a new Sunday night hot party in town. Bonus: it involves Spandex. And Aussies. We'll be there. Look out Cipriani's.
Armin Armani, the ex-Bungalow 8 doorman received nods with his exclusive upstairs spot at Socialista. Well, he's decided there's too many "average folk" in the Socialista cafe below. He's turning it into an upscale, late night diner a la Florent that he hopes will be as tough as door policy as its sister above.
Aspen Social opens, and our correspondant gets the first look inside.
We rubbed elbows with with soccer enthusiasts including US Olympic Soccer player Heather O'Reily, Giants Michael Strayhand, and "Surviors'" Ethan Zohn at Marquee for the Grassroots soccer event. We then headed all the way uptown for an unprecedented interview at Dorrian's with Essentiall Emily.
Finally, we are sick of people keeping secrets from us. The "secret bars" may be passe, but we are positive there are other secrets out there that have yet to be unearthed. We will be on the lookout this week, hoping to share some of the more interesting ones.
