City Paper is not for tourists
Years after its tour as D.C’s go-to Internet punching bag ended, bro-heavy private social forum LateNightShots is all but forgotten. Until yesterday, when someone on the District’s Reddit went looking for an invite.
LNS’s politically incorrect—-read: alternately racist and sexist—-membership repeatedly scandalized bloggers from 2006 to 2008. The site apparently still exists and supplies the simpatico Guest of a Guest D.C. with party pictures, but its cachet off the party circuit is much diminished—-or so we thought.
“LNS is so very GW Bush era, buddy,” advised one Reddit poster before offering an invite—-as long as the new member stayed silent on the deal. If this guy is so anxious to hold onto his membership, maybe LNS isn’t so dead after all!
