In unity there is strength. Last night, the denizens of Uptown came from east and west of Broadway alike, Washington Heights & Inwood, and got together for a common and noble cause. The Bumrush. Simply defined, the Bumrush, is when a group of people gather with little planning or prior preparation at one of Uptown’s many cool establishments to have a good time. But the Bumrush is about more than just folks getting their buzz on. Ultimately, the Bumrush is about establishing new channels of communication between locals and further strengthening the ones that already exist. Last night’s Bumrush began at Locksmith Bar and ended up Apt 78. A great time was had by all in attendance but more importantly we networked, conspired and colluded. Put on your shades because 2011 is looking quite bright indeed. The future is ours to shape.
