Hey, here’s an extra $100 toward gift sets of top-shelf spirits and champagne—delivered. (It’s okay if you’re gifting yourself.) Also: take up to 75% off technologically advanced winter coats from Aether and 30% off a seriously nifty phone-charging tripod (with a really weird name).
Things to do for December 27, 2012
Forget the Weekend, It’s New Year’s Eve
Nice weekends finish last.
Ending the Year on a Crazy Note
Let’s see... masquerade masks, sparklers, elaborate costumes, a DJ and some dancing girls in fishnets. Yup, that sounds like the kind of Marie-Antoinette-meets-traveling-circus craziness you can expect at Winstons for NYE. Just remember, when you pop champagne, always do it away from the eyes.
A Five-Course Feast at Private | Social
New Year’s Eve is all about options. Here, you’ve got two. Choose the Private side for a five-course dinner (think Peking duck with foie gras ravioli.) Or stick to the Social side for cocktails, champagne and a little live jazz. There’s no wrong answer. Just a more right one.
Dinner with a Side of Fireworks
Way up in the sky, there’s a party with a DJ, Korean short ribs and cocktails. Sounds like Five Sixty’s got a solid NYE lineup again. But oh, there’s more. Around midnight, grab some champagne and a window seat for a view of the Victory Park fireworks show. It’s... glorious.
End the Year in a Fashion Gallery
Two words: open bar. Forty-one more words: FIG’s NYE party promises plenty to drink, hors d’oeuvres and a champagne toast at midnight. Throw in some video mixes by DJ Humble and a room stocked with really attractive people and, well... we know, we had you at open bar.
Beginning 2013 with Brunch
Resolutions are easy. Yup, no problem keeping those. Well, assuming they’re all brunch-related again like last year. So you’ll start 2013 with a victory when you head to the Mansion. They’ve got Bloody Marys, mimosas, benedict-y things... all the big ones. You’d hate to start the year on an empty stomach.
