You know, we've been hearing some mumblings about Sunday nights at Sidebar so this past weekend, we decided to hold off our picture-snapping until then, hoping to catch the roll-off from Adult Swim.
And indeed we did just that (take a look at our slideshow). It was a bit of a sleepy evening (we blame the heat) but things started picking up around 11 p.m. when a slightly soggy crowd emerged. The attire was pool party casual and we spied some soggy threads with running mascara. But that's the perk of the Sunday nightlife: messy-pretty is totally embraced.
