2009 Invitation

Friends, we rapidly approach the unofficial end of what shall historically be considered one of the most jackass decades in recent history. Were this decade a type of person, it would most certainly have been a ten-year-old bully who uses your own fist to punch you while urging you, over and over again, to "stop hitting yourself."

Shall we be sorry to see our bully go? I think not. But perhaps we can take a certain joy in celebrating the eve of the eve of his sendoff with The Triumphant Return of The Night Before New Year's Eve after a two-year hiatus. I am thrilled to announce that the fete is also back in the fashionable district of TriBeCa for the first time in half a decade, and is "old school" -- which is to say, no admission charge, and no nudity involved. Or at least, planned.

Since either 1992 or 1993, The Night Before New Year's Eve has offered a select group of premium people the chance to acquire just the hangover they needed for a perfect New Year's Eve Day. Please join us in the resurgence of this annual tradition.


Or, "When Doves Cry"

DATE: Wednesday, December 30, 2009
TIME: 8:00pm until the bartender feels we have imbibed sufficient alcohol to survive 2010

LOCATION: Ward III, 111 Reade Street, TriBeCa
It's like Grace, only much, much better!


Charles Ardai : Now how could I miss that? Well, I suppose I could get drunk and forget to show up; or I could be abducted and anally probed; or I could burst spontaneously into flames (could happen, Leonard Nimoy told me so in 1979). But if none of those things happen, I'll be there.
Magdalena Fox : Heck yeah!
Hard Corey : Of coarse I'll be there.
The Flying Fox/ MizMargo : Jeeze! How manny places i gotta RSVP? I will be there! xox
Liz G. : Oh, excellent. I think I'll have a few friends in tow, and we may be late-ish, but probably not by your standards.
Bb Heart : looking forward to it. mmmm boooooze
Ed Barnas : Sounds like a plan - Maria and I should be there for a bit on the earlier side ...
Kobayashi Maru : 私はそこにいて非常に幸せである!
Nikola : Drat! Why must I still reside in cities other than NYC? Love and hugs!
