FIVE! FOUR! THREE! TWO! ONE! HAPPY NEW YEAR!! It is time to wave farewell to 2010 and say "HEY BOO" to 2011! I love New Year's Eve because you can dress in really fun and fab clothes and prepare for a fresh start! For me, it is really important to ring in the new year with a lot of fun, friends and fierceness. This means that you have to pick the perfect venue that is just right for you and your crew. There are thousands of events in NYC so how does one choose? Never fear OJ&B is here!
I have taken the liberty of choosing 3 events for December 31st that I think are going to be the hotness! The prices and atmosphere range from high end to affordable so there is something for everyone. Always remember that no matter where you go you must follow OJ&B's #1 rule, "Be fierce all the time and all the time be fierce!" Here is where I would go in NYC for NYE!
1. The Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Columbus Circle
Welcome the new year in true New York City style at Manhattan’s celebration destination at the first annual New Year’s Eve Gala at the Mandarin Oriental, New York.
