"They've kind of done the New York City party sing thing."

I suppose that it should be written "party-sing", like a single word.

But what particular side of New York would be that?

I suppose it's not the party-sing but singthing. A kind of party where folks gather together to jam and socialize.

Try to google sing thing, you may find, among other information:


"What is the Berkeley Singthing?

The Berkeley Singthing (so called because it is organized in the Berkeley conference) is an informal gathering of WELLperns and other friends for the purpose of group music-making. The Singthings have been taking place in Berkeley, Oakland and other East Bay locations since late 1991.

When and where do Singthings occur?

A Singthing happens when somebody decides to host one, and announces it in this topic -- typically every 1-3 months or so. A good Singthing venue will include a living room or backyard area large enough to hold 15 or more players and singers comfortably, plus an annex area with a table for food and room for people to converse without intruding on the music. Refreshments, both food and drink, are BYO."

We sometimes sing in the church and we always sing in the local.
It must be a spiritual thing, this singthing.

Could it be that what was said was "party scene" and heard as "party sing"?

More context would be very helpful. My first thought was, as with others, a description of a social interaction. It could, however, also refer to political parties (i.e. 'singing the praises' thereof).

It's usually easier to give an answer if you include a couple of sentences surrounding the one you're questioning.

Yeah, you're right! It just makes much more sense. Thank you so much!

That was said by Liz Murray when describing her hippie parents lifestyle.
