Studio at Havana

"Gay disco" is about as redundant as "delicious pizza," but Havana's weekly Wednesday affair, Studio, has recently come out as "gay-ass." Not that this will change anything—the night's mix of classic, rare, and Italo disco consistently draws a cool, friendly crowd blessedly free of bridge-and-tunnelers. Conflict of interest: DJs TJ Gorton and HMA are regular Line Out contributors. Further conflict: Stranger music critic Michealangelo Matos DJs the happy hour immediately preceding. Can you stand one more? One of the DJs is sleeping with one of our editors. But one of the DJs always is. (Havana, 1010 E Pike St, 323-2822. Happy hour at 7 pm, free. Studio at 9 pm, $3, 21+.)

....And nobody cares. Sounds incredibly incestuous, and it reads more like a work party than a dance night. And did you really think the line "One of the DJs is sleeping with one of our editors" would generate more appeal?

um, what are "bridge and tunnelers"? Straight people? People from the east side? what?

It's too cryptic for me. I don't get it.

Riddler, the answer lies with Wikipedia!

I'd never heard it used outside of the context of Literally New York. I figured every city had its own version of it--for example, in Atlanta, people in the suburbs are OTP (Outside The Perimeter, where the Perimeter is I-285). I suppose the translation of the sentence is essentially, "...a cool, friendly crowd blessedly free of people from undesirable neighborhoods."
