I just got this message from a KStreetKate reader:
Merry Christmas to you, too! Looking for a New Year’s Eve idea/fun
party to go to. Any tips? Single, smart, attractive female with no date 🙁 can
you believe it! All my good friends are either our of town/country with their
husband/boyfriend/family… You can e-mail me directly if you don’t want to post
the answer: [redacted]. Thank you and hope to meet you someday!
Well…I was one of those escaping the city, but my New Year’s Eve plans all of a sudden went up in the air, too, and as I’ve looked into some options here in town, I have some great ideas to pass on! Last year, I made the rounds of all of the Latin Concepts resturants in town, and it was a great time. I ended up at Chi Cha, which I think may be sold out already – but any of them Mate, Gazuza, or Ceviche are a great place to ring in the new year.
Some other parties that I know will have good, fun crowds and people worth meeting:
The City Tavern Club New Year’s Celebration. I am a member of this club, so I’m biased, but every time I go there, I have a blast, and
Midnight Mischief in the Park. It’s black tie optional (why would anyone want to ring in a new year not in their very best??) $75 in advance for two whole floors of fun.
Teatro is having two dinner seatings, and if you are still hungry after that, you can head over to The Space for a $25 open bar from 3-5 am and breakfast – yum!
There are so many I couldn’t possibly list them all. Let me know if there are other great places to check out – or if you figure out a way that I can hide myself in my roommate’s suitcase to enjoy the sun in St. Barths!!
Thank you Kate for all the links! Sorry to hear that your New Year’s plans went up in the air. That happened to be last NYE. My then boyfriend decided on 12/30 that he wants to go out with the boys, so I dumped him immediately ha ha ha ha
If I see you at any of the parties on NYE I will be sure to say hello and introduce myself.
Thanks again and Happy New Year!!!
Sadly,the plans changed due to the passing of a close friend. But I’m blessed! I won’t be headed to Anguilla as originally scheduled… but will see Key West, Florida for the first time and celebrate the New Year with warmth and sunshine.
Happy New Year to you!!
