Look What $40,000 Will Get You for New Year’s Eve at a Hotel in New York

I’m not much of a New Year’s Eve person simply because I hate the idea of being obligated to have fun just because the calendar is flipping over.  And after years of hosting drunken New Year’s Eve events in clubs–evenings where the toilets and urinals overflow with vomit by 10:45–I was soooooooooooooo done with New Year’s a long time ago.  In fact, this poster pretty much sums up every New Year’s Eve club event that you might be thinking of attending tonight.

But that won’t dissuade millions.  Check out this offer at The Dream Hotel Downtown in New York.  For $40,000 (that’s not a typo), you’ll receive a “king’s table” for you and 30 friends, complete with 20 bottles of Circo vodka, 20 bottles of 2004 Moet Chandon Imperial and Macklemore.  Yes, the Macklemore from “Thrift Show.”

Down south, the club at Miami’s Fountainebleau Hotel called LIV is offering a table featuring Pharrelll and Afrojack.  No price has been given for that one.

Me?  I’m staying home.
