Gearing Up for New Year’s!

New Year’s Eve (and day!) is approaching so here we take a brief look at what is happening in and around our locality.

Getting the party started early is a joint venture between EBK Events and JRG Entertainment happening tomorrow night! Get your glad rags and dancing shoes on for The End of a Decade Masquerade Ball. With VIP guest appearances including Eric Adams (Brooklyn Borough President) and Yvette Clark (US Representative), Caribbean-infused complimentary appetizers and more, this event is not to be missed!

If you don’t want to spoil their foray into New Year’s, they can wait til 31st December and celebrate at the Le Crocodile, Wythe Hotel with a New Year’s Eve Dinner. Watch the ball drop and then check out the Lemon’s after-party where Boy Michi will be hosting a disco-inspired fete!

If you want to take a trip down memory lane or at least go back to how things were a century ago, there is the aptly themed Roaring 20s Party. Take a cab over to Bushwick and get your place at the Brooklyn Cider House before 10pm when the party starts. With a DJ and ball drop Times Square screening this dress up party will have you boogeying the night away til 2am! Cost $100.

And if you are up for doing anything the next day, why not bring in 2020 with the ever popular Coney Island Polar Bear Club swim? Come on down to Stillwell Avenue’s Boardwalk at 1pm donning warm clothes and old boots. Suggested donation of at least $25 for the benefit of the Coney Island community (and New York Aquarium). It really is a must-see (at least one time in your life) for locals and all swimmers will be given free admission to the New York Aquarium too.
