When the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, the most exciting place to be is New York’s Times Square. There is no better way to ring in the New Year than watching the ball drop live amongst one million people in the heart of New York City.
The New Year’s Time Square tradition dates back to 1904. Beginning as a celebration of The New York Times, the owner, Adolph Ochs, put together a fabulous street-festival which included fireworks to celebrate the new home of the publication. Over the years, this festivity has evolved resulting in Times Square now being the ultimate place to celebrate the New Year in NYC.

Many people will tell you they don’t like fennel because they associate it with the taste of licorice candy. However, this salad will surprise everyone at how refreshing and well blended the flavors are. It’s could be because the fennel is sliced thinly and meshes well with the parsley and the white-wine vinegar. Please note that the original recipe called for pine nuts but if you are in doubt about any nut allergies, leave them out.
The only change made from the original was eliminating salt. The original recipe can be found at What’s Cooking America.
Want to know where your favorite celebrities will be going to ring in this New Years 2010? Here is the dish.
Lady Gaga, singer and songwriter of “Just Dance”, “Poker Face”, and more recently known for “Disco Stick” and “Bad Romance” will be taking the stage at FontaineBleau Poolside in Miami. After leading off the countdown ‘til the end of 2009, she will make her first 2010 performance at this memorable NYE Bash.
We here at joonbug have a deep appreciation for musicians who play at our parties. If it wasn’t for them, our parties would just be a bunch of people standing around staring at each other like a bad high school reunion. Who wants to party like that?
Nevertheless, we hold a special place on our website for people like O’neal Mcknight. Musician, stylist, and overall great person, O’neal is always ready to bring a positive attitude to everything he puts his mind to. His career is quickly rising to an astronomical level and I was privileged to conduct a follow-up to his Halloween interview to ask him questions about his thoughts on where he’s come from and what to expect for the coming year.
Unless you're abstaining from alcohol completely this New Years Eve, it pays to drink smart. An oxymoron, I know. One can always try. Here are a few ideas.
Tip #1 - Pace Thyself
The most obvious and the most often ignored rule of any prolonged New York New Year's Eve Party, proper pacing is essential to ensure that when midnight comes around you’re kissing your date/stranger of choice/whoever, not hugging a toilet in New York City.
Tip #2 - The Bottle Is For the Whole Table
Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter aren't having any problem keeping themselves occupied these days. Their parties, Mr. Saturday Night (featuring "consistently epic" guest DJs) and Sunday Best (on hold ‘til warmer weather rolls around), have gone beyond simple popular dance parties, to become events that people plan their whole weekend around. Meanwhile, New Release, their blog of sorts, has quietly become somewhat of a to do list for those in the know. I was lucky enough to grab these two for a few questions about their upcoming New Year's Eve party.
