Upping the Anti
IN THE SWING OF THINGS
A Swingers Party with Standards
Your resolution: To be a paragon of fidelity.
But first: You’ll don an Eyes Wide Shut–esque mask for this roving, porn-star-attended swingers club. Think more anonymous celebrities exploring their sexuality and less old dudes and a bowl of keys. Okay, ease up on the thinking now.
A Spiked Energy Cocktail
Your resolution: To switch to decaf.
But first: Belly up to a housemade energy drink dreamed up by Eamon Rockey (fresh off his time at Atera). It’s a mixture of ginseng, ginkgo biloba, grapefruit zest, sparkling cider... Oh, and booze. For energy.
Celebrating New Year’s by Gambling
Your resolution: To cut down on wagering and games of chance.
But first: Extend that heater as long as possible in the city’s only casino. Because every hour, you’ll have a chance to win a trip to wherever in the world it has just struck midnight. Pro tip: 9pm is Brazil.
A Ludicrously Extravagant Hotel Suite
Your resolution: To curb unnecessary spending.
But first: Maybe just one night in this 1,700-square-foot hotel suite designed by Bentley. It’s got stitched-leather walls and, well, it looks like a Bentley. You’ll also have the keys to North America’s first Bentley Mulsanne. Just bring it back with a full tank.
The Twinkie Bagel. Of Course.
Your resolution: To drop a few pounds.
But first: This Brooklyn-based sponge-cake bagel will enter your breakfast universe. It’s topped with a fluffy vanilla cream cheese. Let that sink in... just a little longer... Yes, it’s a Twinkie bagel. Let us never speak of this again.
