If you’ve found yourself still unsure of your New Year’s plans and you missed out on the Christmas Eve Matzoh Ball, Let My People Go are sponsoring a New Year’s bash at the Village Lantern (167 Bleecker b/t Thompson & Sullivan) with hors d’oeuvres, champagne, and a live DJ for $40 in advance, $50 at the door.
However, if the Jewish singles scene isn’t your thing (Lord knows it isn’t mine), the editors of Bang It Out are throwing a New Year’s party at the Caliente Cab Company (21 Waverly Place). Open bar for only $25.
Finally (although it has absolutely nothing to do with being Jewish) the coolest party happening this New Year’s by far—or at least, as far as I know—is The Madagascar Institute’s New Year’s Celebration at 931 Bergen @ Franklin in Brooklyn. Open bar, snacks, champagne and coat check all for $25, with “Art installations, giant games, cozy nooks and secret spots offset by three floors of music featuring dancehall, jungle, breaks, classics, deep house and more. Open bar. Time Travel. A lollipop forrest. Oh yeah—and then we’re gonna blow shit up.”
I am so there.
