Cocktails for New York New Years

The cosmo, the LIT, and the mojito are all recent classics we have enjoyed on a night out with our friends. So, why not try something new to drink on 2010 New Year's Eve?

Variations on the classic martini have become extremely popular ever since Carrie and the girls started drinking cosmos on Sex and the City. This New Years try a new take on an old classic, the blood orange martini. This delicious drink contains 1 part Campari, 2 parts orange vodka, and 1 part orange juice, perfect for the sweet tooth in all of us. This drink is easy to concoct for any bartender, so when you are partying the night away at STK this New Year's Eve NYC ask for a blood orange martini, shaken not stirred.

New York New Years Eve Ball: The History

Over 100 years ago on Dec. 31, 1907 the most recognized New Years Eve tradition began, for the first time the New Years Eve ball dropped from the top of One Times Square.
New York was not the first city to use a ball dropping as a signal of time change. The history of the time ball was began in Greenwich, England when a ball would drop at 1:00 p.m. daily to inform ship captains of the time. New York adapted this idea into a New York New Years celebration by dropping a 700 pound ball constructed of iron and wood, lit with 100 light bulbs at midnight on Dec. 31st to ring in the New Year.
The New Years Eve ball has been dropped almost every year since 1907. In 1942 and 1943 the ball was not dropped due to war time restrictions in New York. Although the ball did not drop the celebration in Times Square continued.
The celebration that takes place around the New Years Eve ball is just as much of a tradition as the drop. The celebration in Times Square began in 1904 with nearly 200,000 people in attendance. Each year the celebration grows, with the help of television broadcasts it is estimated that one billion people take part in this tradition each year.
Currently, the New Years Eve ball weighs 11,875 pounds and is covered in 2,668 Waterford crystals. The ball is can produce 16 million different colors, making for a beautiful sight. In 2008 the ball became a year round attraction perched atop Times Square.
Though the New Years Eve ball has changed many times throughout the years it remains a staple in any New Years NYC celebration. It is likely that wherever you may be at 11:59:50 p.m. on December 31st you will be crowded around a television watching the New Years Eve ball drop.

New Years Resolutions in New York

New Years Resolutions, always high hopes and low success rates. This year why not choose an achievable resolution and take positive steps toward achieving that goal.

Each year New Yorkers take on lofty resolutions that are too much for any one person to achieve. By January 15th the diet has failed, you haven’t ran in a week, and you just smoked a cigarette. Rather than try and take on all of these resolutions, why not focus on one? All too often someone makes a resolution to “get healthy” well getting healthy may involve several steps, for now just choose one whether it be eating well, working out, or quitting smoking.

Savant's of NYC to the Rescue

As a die hard Californian, I’ve always been fascinated with New York City, especially during New Years Eve New York. Sky rises, bright lights, fast paced, overly eager and yet still abundantly soothing. There are many splendors that the Big Apple has to offer but sometimes, we just can’t keep up with all the things that are going on. Especially with someone like me; a newly joined resident of Manhattan from the opposite side of the country, has a difficult time to know where to go, what to see, why to go see it, etc. An outside perspective can always offer new insights, especially one that has much more experience and it’s never a bad thing to have too much information. What better way to make an educated decision based on the knowledge that you have? Blog’s are quickly becoming the forefront of educating an end-user about a product, service or experience – sometimes a critic’s opinion is just not enough. Being in the middle of Time Square when the ball drops at midnight in on NYC New Years has always been something that I have wanted to do but from reading the savvy blogs below, it might sway me to try something that isn’t so cliche.
