When it comes to nightlife, “cool” and “hot” mean the same thing.
These days, Westport’s nightlife can be summed up in one word: “not.”
Two hip-but-nerdy researchers recently unveiled a means of measuring cool hot spots based on things like film screenings, concerts, gallery openings and fashion shows.
It examined only two cities — New York and L.A. — but once upon a time Westport had nightlife too. There were movie theaters (five!), concerts (The Doors, Yardbirds and Cream all played here) and galleries.
Sure, we had a fashion show just last month. The models were Staples football players and cheerleaders. No offense but, I mean, no one confused it with Project Runway.
That sums up Westport’s sad night scene, doesn’t it? No one wears BVDs anymore.
It’s time to toss off our briefs. Westport: Move into a boxers world!
