My New Year’s plans involve a giant kiss off to 2016

I had just assumed that 2016 would end on one high note – the Bowery Collective‘s annual festivities. And I would have been perfectly content to do so. It’s a beautiful, fun gathering with amazing food and drink.

But then, one of my friends from my July vacation asked “any interest in going back to Saint Martin for New Year’s?”

Do you like your bananas frozen?

Of course you do. Who doesn’t appreciate a frozen banana? How about a blender drink?

My friends at Bowery Collective recognized that and created a new event: BoCo Resort. Thanks to them, I’ll be looking ahead to summer with a cocktail in my hand–at least one of them will surely come from Brugal Rum’s daiquiri cart.

Therapi Band will be on-site playing reggae and more.

In lieu of a 2015 year in review post

In the past, I have posted about the highs and lows of the prior year. But in 2015, I experienced some of the lowest lows of my life. You lovely friends have been so supportive. Why would I make you relive all of that heartache?

So in lieu of a review of my 2015, here’s a little peek into how I spent New Year’s Eve.

I took a selfie before leaving, mostly to show my mother that I was alive and attempting to mask illness with lots of makeup and a salon blowout.

I arrived a little early to check out the set-up and find our table. As usual, Bowery Collective did a wonderful job.

At this point, I’m aiming to remember not the pain of 2015, but instead the fact that when I leaned on my friends, they were present for me. I’m grateful for that.

On to 2016.

Just call me the New Year’s Eve fairy

It’s only early December. If you’re a normal person – aka not me – you haven’t started stressing about making plans for New Year’s Eve.

But if you’re a weirdo like me, you want to lock it in. You don’t want to be left out, without something fun to do. Or maybe you just want to resist temptation to do nothing but watch New Year’s Rockin’ Eve from the comfort of your couch.

This is how I spent last New Year’s Eve with friends. Pretty swank, eh?

We had a dedicated server who made sure we always had cocktails and food from the various stations AND a butler–who was so young and handsome; I probably complimented him a bit too much, poor guy. Continue reading

I am a New Year’s Eve early adopter (for once)

Every year, there’s angst. Where should I spend New Year’s Eve and with whom? NYE can be hell for the single and the unmarried.

Whatever. This year I feel great about my plans because my friends at Bowery Collective are throwing an elegant affair at my favorite hangout, Bowery Hotel.

If you have joined me at Whiskey Washback or Arte Agave, you have some idea of what to expect. But this is New Year’s so it will be extra special. Snazzy even.

 

Come for the Champagne cocktail station or the scotch lounge with live jazz. Or just come to hang out with my friends and me.

Just don’t dare ask for a Coors Light, please.

Drinks on me

Sort of.

Remember when I told you about this event?

Walt and Bowery Collective are doing it again. Whiskey Washback, the next edition, will take place on Friday, October 24 at the Bowery Hotel.

(AKA my favorite place.)

If you like whiskey and bourbon (or you want to learn more about both), here’s your chance: Bowery Collective is bringing back Whiskey Washback on Friday 10/24 at Bowery Hotel.

And if you think the brown spirits are a bit scary (you shouldn’t–trust me), know that there will be cocktails available in addition to straight tastes.

This awesome event will sell out so if you’re interested, get tickets here ASAP.

To get 25% off your ticket, use promo code JEN. See you there!
