City Hall transforms its depressing concrete and brick plaza into a crazy outdoor snow track this afternoon, where Red Bull freestyle snowmobiler Heath Frisby (best freestyle snowmobiler name ever) will be demonstrating the kinds of insane moves you normally only see online.
Things to do for December 31, 2009
Brazilian Revelry, Hangover Brunch and Snowmobiles
The weekend will miss 2009's rugged good looks.
If you still haven't made plans, 33 Restaurant is going Brazilian tonight with gratis South American-style hors d'oeuvres for the first two hours, a live Brazilian dance troupe, passed party favors and a fully stocked caipirinha bar. All-white attire is encouraged—it means good luck in Brazil, and hopefully it'll work wonders for you in Boston.
If the sights and sounds of Brazil aren't in your NYE plans, Suite is throwing an emerald-themed party tonight featuring scantily clad dancers decked out in shiny jewels, DJ beats and a champagne toast at midnight. Your ticket enters you in the contest to win an actual diamond, but we say focus on landing one of the dancers. Good luck.
Vox Populi's Cynical Sendoff
When you think about it, this year wasn't that fantastic. So while other places around town are planning parties in high spirits, Vox Populi is going the other way with an emphatic "F 2009" party, where you can kiss off a rotten annum with free hors d'oeuvres, a potentially grumpy DJ and passed champagne till 2am.
Tonight will be epic, and tomorrow you'll have to pay the piper. Do so while noshing on Ginger Park's new hangover brunch, featuring booze-soaking remedies like Shirred Eggs With Lamb Sausage ("shirred" = baked) and the Hangover Bacon Cheeseburger topped with a fried egg. It goes till 4pm, which will give you just enough time to get out of bed and get over there.
