Ain’t no party like a mayoral party ‘cos a mayoral party is largely at the expense of the taxpayer.
Mayor Eric Adams, who can’t seem to take a night off from partying, was out again Thursday night — our disco mayor most recently spotted celebrating hip-hop’s 49th birthday with some of the genre’s biggest legends.
Adams was front and center at Toca’s Playhouse in Union Square and “everybody was so happy and grateful to see him and mingle with him,” a spy told Page Six.
“He was listening to people’s stories and everyone was expressing their gratitude of him. There was a lot of love in the room,” they added.
DJ Tony Touch hosted that bash that brought out some of hip-hop’s OG’s like Kurtis Blow, Kool DJ Red Alert and KRS One, who performed an entire set that lasted for over an hour and a half, we’re told.
“[Mayor Adams] was moving with the crowd. He was just another fan watching KRS One. He didn’t take away the shine from the party,” the source said.
Adams was on the scene with his nightlife director Ariel Palitz and Tony Touch shouted them both out for supporting the hip hop community, we’re told.
Another partygoer who attended and is clearly team Adams, explained, “He knows where to be! Nightlife is part of the recovery [of New York City] and he knows that. He knows where to be — and it’s not just places like Zero Bond,” they said.
We appreciate that the mayor has branched out from the confines of the uber-exclusive private club, but maybe it’s time to bring the party back to City Hall. Wishful thinking, perhaps.
