Ringing in the New Year

It’s almost that time where the countdown commences for the ball to drop in Times Square. With New Year’s Eve coming quickly down the pipeline, are your plans made?

While preparing for the last night of 2017, take some time and make a checklist of all the necessities needed to have a successful and fun New Year.

Did You Select a Venue?

It is important to have an idea of where you will be attending. If you plan on going out to a bar, club, gala, or another type of event, research to see if there is a cover charge or maximum occupancy before deciding on the location. Venues book up fast and may be full. Knowing this ahead of time, or buying tickets beforehand can eliminate a potential nightmare at the door.

Did You Plan with Friends?

According to Eventbrite, 44% of people choose a venue based on who else is going. (Eventbrite) People want to go to an event with their close friends, and New Year’s Eve is no exception. If you are planning to attend the event with friends, did everyone confirm they were going? It’s best to get a final headcount for transportation, event tickets, open-bar tickets, etc.

 Do You have a Designated Driver?

With many events having VIP access, bottle service, open-bars, and champagne toasts at midnight do you have a reliable source to get you home once the event concludes? Before you pop the bubbly this New Year’s Eve, plan ahead on the transportation to ensure a safe ride home.
