My love note: PYT has many different interpretations – Pay Your Tab, Pick Your Toppings, and yes, Pretty Young Thing – and means many different things to me. Tommy Up, a close friend of mine and PYT’s owner, has had a huge hand in my success. I had my first formal DJ lesson in the infamous Backroom, my first weekly residency in the tent, and my first party, Brass Knuckles, at the front bar. PYT is home to America’s Craziest Burgers and it’s eccentric staff reflects that envelope pushing, colorful business model. They make me feel like I’m always welcome. I can walk in at any time, any day — even just to stop by and sit outside for a while — and it’s like I never left.
