New Years Eve is upon us and it’s time to party! You have one day left of 2013 to try a new restaurant, share drinks with friends, and find the perfect spot to ring in the New Year. So put on a sparkly dress, sexy high-heels, and bright lips and you’ll be ready to go. Here are some fabulous last minute tips to really give 2013 the send off it deserves!
End the year right with a fantastic dinner that will satisfy your taste buds! Enjoy a romantic candlelit meal at one of my favorite spots, Hearth. This seasonal Italian restaurant is offering a delicious four-course menu that will knock your socks off. If you’re in the mood for some spice try out my recent discovery, Balaboosta. This fabulous “Mediterranean meets Middle East” restaurant in Nolita is offering an $85 NYE Moroccan-themed menu that is a must try!
Start Your Year With a Pop!
It wouldn’t be NYE without champagne so why not spend your night (or part of it) at Bubble Lounge. This sophisticated and elegant lounge is a fabulous place for you to share a romantic glass of bubbly with your significant other, or share a magnum with your closest friends.
Play Some Games…
Have fun this NYE by listening to jazz music with games galore at Fat Cat in the West Village. Shoot some pool, play table tennis, or even a game of chess. Regardless if you win or lose, the fantastic list of microbrewery beers and the live jazz musicians.
Take a trip down memory lane and spend your night at Barcade playing classic arcade games in this fun Brooklyn hangout. Stock up on quarters and get ready to feel nostalgic playing all the arcade games from your childhood while drinking beer in this “garage”.
Get Up and Do Something…
No matter how hard it will be, the first day of 2014 should not be spent in bed! Go out to brunch with you friends at one of my favorite hot spots. Keep the champagne flowing at Tipsy Parson with their fabulous Mimosas and enjoy the fresh and tasty Mushroom Toast. If you’ve had enough champagne recover with Prune’s famous Bloody Mary’s and creative yet amazing Spaghetti Carbonara.
I believe that New Years Day should be just as special as the night before. Being the first day of the year, it’s a time for reflection, promises, and it should be celebrated too. Take a walk in Central Park, see some art, prepare an incredible meal you’ve always wanted to try, and most importantly make it count!
