Mayor-elect Eric Adams appears to be having fun before taking office in January.
After being spotted have fun at the Zero Bond private club in november, Adams was seen over the weekend at Fresco by Scotto, Rosanna Scotto’s mighty downtown restaurant, dancing outside with a group of people to Odyssey’s song “Native New Yorker”.
We are told he was leaving the restaurant when he joined the spontaneous dance party.
In a video posted by Scotto, the mayor-elect is seen smiling and applauding, surrounded by an energetic crowd as he shouts “New York”.
Reactions have been mixed in the comments, mainly due to the crowd’s lack of masks.
“No masks. WTF, ”one said. Another, “the mask mandates are for the peasants, not for the elites.” And “None of you wore masks when Covid and Omicron were unleashed in the wild.”
Some were more forgiving. “They are out,” commented one. “Dream dance party,” said another. And, “So many people are happy to have a new mayor.”
A representative from Adams tells us: “The elected mayor is vaccinated and boosted, and he was outside. He encourages all New Yorkers and visitors to New York to frequent our restaurants and stores to support workers in a safe manner, and to get vaccinated and boosted to stop the spread of COVID-19. “
This wasn’t the first time Adams has been at the bustling Italian spot, a favorite of Katie Couric, Wendy Williams, Kelly Ripa and Donny Deutsch. Page Six spotted him there this summer, where he received a standing ovation from other guests. Adams was also spotted last week at former Congressman Adam Clayton Powell Jr’s holiday party at Hidden Lane with Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and Nicki Minaj’s mother Carol Maraj.
He’s also been spotted multiple times at the Zero Bond Private Club, chatting with Gen-Zers like Dixie D’Amelio and hanging out with Nets star James Harden, La La Anthony and Paris Hilton. He told the crowd one evening, “When I am the mayor of this city, it will be the city where the nightlife lives and thrives. We’re going to give this city back what we know it is. “
Adams takes office on January 1. He recently announced six entrants deputies to the mayor, including five women.
