The Rusty Knot Party Bus returns to the East Village!

That's right! The bus is back! We got word last week that Knotgoers in Williamsburg and the East Village/Lower East Side would once again get a free alcohol-fueled ride to the nautica-themed faux dive on the West Side Highway. The bus makes pickups at Bedford Avenue and North 7th Street at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m., and at First Street and First Avenue at 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. (I previously wrote about it here.)

I happened to be right here at First Street and First Avenue on my way to see the Icicle Audi when the bus promptly pulled in around 8:30ish... the bus idled here alongside Boca Chica for 15 minutes or so...

...before pulling away...

And I didn't see one person get on. (And I couldn't tell how many people were on the bus.) Just saw one fellow in a beard and cardigan exit the bus a few times and look up First Avenue to see if any Knotgoers were on the way... Perhaps there were more people for the 10:30 p.m. pickup...

Bonus Party Bus Excerpt from last February, when a Times reporter hopped aboard:

This is raging!” said Ryan McGaffigan, a 32-year-old sales manager in a wool cap, plaid shirt and ’50s-style glasses. He had just polished off two Buds “shotgun” — puncturing the can and finishing it in one long swig.

Here is a similar story about the bus

Local DJ and party boy Matt K. & Lucas Walters are hosting the Rusty Knot Party Bus tonight. The Rusty Knot hooks everyone up with a booze filled free ride on a ridiculously fun party bus from Brooklyn and Manhattan to the nautically themed”dive” bar located all the on the West Side, founded by the Spotted Pig’s Ken Friedman and Freemans’ Taavo Somer.
