Men and women are dancing wildly on an outdoor deck amidst strobe lights and smoke, but there's no music to be heard -- unless you're wearing headphones. This has become a common scene past 11 p.m. at Bracco's restaurant on the Nautical Mile in Freeport, where a noise ordinance has brought a new type of late-night partying to the South Shore called "quiet clubbing."
