“Guests sat around the hushed booths, scribbling notes to each other on index cards, like Luddites in an Internet chat room.”

WHO: Denny Lee, “Overheard at the Bar: Do You Write Here Often?,” The New York Times, December 22, 2002
ABOUT WHAT: SILENT DATING at the QUIET PARTY
CONTEXT: “The setting—The no-talking area of the Quiet Party, an occasional gathering of disaffected night owls seeking refuge from the deafening sounds of the typical bar. The event took place last weekend at Scott Bonnet, a restaurant and bar on West 31st Street. The jukebox was unplugged, cellphones were turned off, and patrons were prohibited from uttering a word.”
