In the City that Never Sleeps, New Year’s Eve is kind of a big deal. It’s the end of the Holiday Season, and the end of 2012. Whether single or taken, society pressures you to celebrate ringing in the New Year. Here are some of our suggestions to bring in 2013!
The Times Square Lowdown:
Everyone that doesn’t live in NYC, imagines spending their night at Times Sqaure. The ball drops, confetti flies in the air, and you join millions of people in the streets celebrating the new year. Yes, you can wait hours in Times Square and MIGHT be able to see the ball drop. Performances include bands like the Neon Trees and Taylor Swift. However, you have to wait hours without something to drink or eat or even use the bathroom. Prepare to be locked in specific sections as the night goes on. Today’s Times Square is a far cry from what it used to be based on the popularity, but it is something you should do in your lifetime!
5 Hour Open Bar Options:
-The prices will be going up during the weekend, so be sure to cement your plans in now.
