12 Dec THE 4 BEST WAYS TO CELEBRATE NEW YEAR’S NEAR LONG ISLAND
SAY HELLO TO 2013!
There is an impressive array of New Year’s celebrations in and around Long Island this year, so really, there can’t be any excuse for giving a blasé “hello” to 2013. We know that New Year’s is a time of revelry and good cheer, both of which can often lead directly to the bar, so we’ve recommended that you provide yourself Your Perfect Atlantic City Night Out to keep your celebratory mood at a safe and manageable high. If you want to take a cab, be our guest, but we are firm believers that a little luxury, especially on a night that only comes once a year, is always advisable and never regrettable. So Your Perfect Atlantic City Night Out pronto (they go fast) so then all you have to worry about is your outfit and where you’ll boogie down while the ball drops.
1. TIMES SQUARE NEW YEAR’S EVE
This one is essentially a very crowded no-brainer. Sure, Times Square is stuffed to its gourd with about a million people (in a very concentrated space) every single New Year’s with people looking to get a glimpse at that famous geometric ball that has brought in the New Year for millions of people for decades. The Times Square celebrations have a lot to offer as far as entertainment, including performances by world-famous musical acts, interviews with celebrities and great opportunities to meet people, make friends and take a million pictures to post on your Facebook. If you can brave the elbow-to-elbow calamity, the Times Square New Year’s tradition might just suit your end-of-year fancy.
2. 2013 NEW YEAR’S EVEN GALA
The 4 Best Ways to Celebrate Long Island’s New Year is by far one of the most anticipated (and interesting) parties that Manhattan has to offer. Since land on the island is few and far between on New Year’s, may we suggest taking to the waters in the Harbor Lights Yacht? The liner boards at around 8:00 P.M. and for a nominal fee, you have access to an open bar and an insanely luxurious buffet line up sure to satiate even the most intense party hunger-pains. Dinner and dancing and drinking can all be had to their hilt during this party in the harbor. Get your ticket reserved pronto because this party is a New Year’s favorite with locals and tourists alike.
3. CHATEAU BRIAND NEW YEAR’S EVE PARTY
The Chateau Briand in Nassau County is renowned for its luxurious dining spaces and astronomical parties, which is essentially why attending their New Year’s Eve Celebrations (yes, there are four) is one our list of to-dos. From 8:00 P.M. to 2:00 A.M., the Chateau offers an indulgent menu, including appetizers, seafood, pasta, dessert, red and white wine on every table and, of course, an open bar. To get you in the mood to dance the night away, they have a variety of DJs and Live Bands playing deep into the wee hours. One look at the Chateau and you’ll want to spend every New Year’s in their elegant lounges drinking top-shelf cocktails.
4. NEW YEAR’S 2013 AT ALLURE NYC
For those of you looking to party ‘til you drop, look no further than Allure NYC who will host the purported “Only 12-Hour New Year’s Party” in NYC (looks like they’ve never been to a college campus before). The Allure does offer an astonishingly low cover for all they have to offer, including an 3-hour open bar, a buffet, a breakfast spread, champagne toast at midnight, hookahs and party favors. Also, if you come in after the clock strikes 12:00, you get a free drink anyway. The Allure is located in Long Island City so you’re sure to get some great exposure to New York art and culture. You might even meet a few artists if you bump around the streets long enough.
