On behalf of all the Greenpointers I hope that all of you had a wonderful Christmas weekend! But now the real partying begins… NYE 2010!
Here’s a round-up of what’s going down this New Years Eve in da ‘pernt. Stay local and crawl home – It’s safer than driving, cheaper than a cab and more reliable than the G.
How does a romantic little snug for you and your best two couple friends at Black Rabbit for New Years Eve sound? Well parties of 5 or more can reserve one for the whole night, but I suggest you do that like right now. Ooo & free party favors!
The Habitat does their NYE no frills style. No cover, $1 off drafts & well drinks from 12-2am and a midnight champagne toast. Oh and NO FIGHTING!
Speaking of no fighting, Papacito’s is holding a NYE bash featuring a band and a DJ at midnight. Not to mention their tequila toast and the kitchen & bar are open until 4am. And if all else fails you can always recuperate there on New Years Day with brunch and $5 bloody mary’s. Facebook event here.
New Years Eve 10 p.m.-4 a.m.
Tequila Toast & Live performance by Willpilot (Colin on drums)@Midnight

The Richardson is upping the ante by having a two-day extravaganza with no cover charge & midnight champagne toast on NYE and a New Years Day pork-a-thon.
We will be dressing up to-the-9’s to ring in 2010! Put on your fancy duds and come steppin’ out with us this Thursday night. There is no cover charge and, of course, we’ll be pouring complimentary bubbly at midnight.
If you have a group of people you are spending the evening with, shoot us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll make a reservation for you – and we still have room in the Parlor, as well!
In addition to New Year’s Eve, we will also be celebrating New Year’s Day! Our kitchen will be serving our regular menu ALL day Friday, from 12Noon – 2am. Also, in a nod to my Pennsylvania Dutch upbringing, a sizable Pork Loin will be going in the oven as soon as we open… When it’s finished roasting (around 5pm), we will be serving free Pork & Sauerkraut for as long as it lasts! (It is a proven Pennsylvania Dutch fact that the consumption of Pork & Sauerkraut on New Year’s Day gives one Good Luck for the next full year!)
And yet another newbie bar, Manhattan Inn is throwing their hat into the ring with a party featuring what to me sounds like the best DJ choices of classic rock and old school hip-hop, plus some $5 party menu eats and the ever popular free midnight champagne toast. Facebook event here.
It’s not just a new year – it’s a new decade!!! Come celebrate with us! Love Deluxe (Will & Simon of Amazing Baby) will be spinning classic rock & old school hip hop from 11pm til 4am.
We’ll be serving a special $5 party menu of small eats, and there will be a FREE champagne toast at midnight!
