Where to Party Thanksgiving Eve 2013
NEW YEARS EVE CENTRAL
Top 5 NYE Parties in NYCs Chelsea and Meatpacking District

Despite its potentially excessive trendiness, the Meatpacking District is made for partying the night away. But, if you'd prefer to keep your stilettos off the cobble stoned streets, we've also included Chelsea hot-spots in this NYE party round-up:

Griffin

Kiss and Fly

Kiss and Fly’s New Year's Eve 2013 celebration will bring sexy back to NYC with one of the most smoldering hot parties this city has never seen! Amidst Manhattan’s sizzling, high drama nightlife circuit lives Meatpacking’s premier ultra-lounge/club, Kiss and Fly. What's in a name? Well, in the case of Kiss and Fly, it's the name of the passenger drop off area in an airport in the south of France. Tres jet-setting chic! A-listers, moguls, models, celebutantes and fashionistas all flock to this mega-hot spot on a nightly basis in search of divine cocktails and pulsating beats. NYE 2013 will be no different.

FUTURE EXES
Chris Brown and Rihanna Back Together?

Through the course of the past year, it seems like at any point there would be a headline that came out of the woodwork that read 'Chris Brown and Rihann Reunite.' Well folks, following weeks of rumors, it appears that today is that day.

People began to talk when the two began recording songs together and it continued when they were seen vacationing together in the South of France. But people are definitely talking now after Chris Brown was seen leaving Rihanna's hotel yesterday, the same day which it was announced that Brown and (now former girlfriend) Karrueche Tran were calling it quits.

Around Town, The Republican Challenge

Meat Packing

It's a Thursday. I’m trying to get off the couch because it's already been a long week. Then, the incentive to get motivated comes in the form of a text message from Jessica White. Sport Illustrated models always get me motivated. She’s in town, bored and wants to hangout. My response? I’m in! She’s staying at the Standard Hotel. I offer to pick her up because I haven’t been there yet and I’m curious. The hotel lobby is small and there is a cute little bar that services the lobby. I’m sure there’s more to come. Mean while, Ms. White has me waiting 20 minutes. Jeez… I love it!
