Things to do for December 26, 2013
Playboy Bunnies, Cheddar Waffles and Champagne. Of Course.
This is the way the weekend ends, not with a whimper but a bang.
It might not be a bad idea to fortify yourself for the night ahead. Truffled prawn risotto and lamb sounds about right. And that’s pretty much what the Forge will be throwing your way, along with unlimited pours of Veuve Clicquot before the inevitable late-night dancing. Which... good luck.
Swiggin’ Bubbly with the Bunnies
Fun fact: Playboy likes to host a couple of official New Year’s Eve parties. Funner fact: one of them’s at Mansion. Yes, there’ll be the requisite Bunnies. Some Playmates of the Year. And a couple of open bars to go along with a midnight light show. Light show. Right.
An Evening of Blurred Lines
That song. You know, the one with Emily Ratajkowski. Apparently, there’s some guy singing in there, too. Anyway, he’ll be the one headlining the festivities at Hyde Beach. Your sushi fix: courtesy of Katsuya. Open bar: naturally. All-night access to Hyde’s pool: blurrier lines.
1920s-Style Partying at Will Call
If the Prohibition era taught us anything, it’s that bathtub gin... is horrible. Also, fedoras can really pull together a look. So you’ll want to dust yours off for this Boardwalk Empire–themed soiree. That’ll get you a gratis Aviation cocktail and a glass of bubbly before midnight. Way to beat the system.
2014 Begins with Cheddar Waffles
Well, you made it. 2014. It’s the dawn of a new day. A new day that, incidentally, feels suspiciously like a hangover. Weird. Enter: Tongue & Cheek. Their hangover brunch is ready to remedy that situation with fried-chicken-and-cheddar waffles, beef-cheek burgers and bottomless brunch beverages. Resolutions start... not now.
