Nightlife Essentials For New Years Eve 2011!

Make your New Years Eve one to remember, in a GOOD way, with these nightlife essentials for NYE 2011!

2. Little black gloves. They're tiny enough to fit in your bag, they'll keep you a lot warmer than bare hands when you're bar hopping, and you can find them for 50 cents to $1 so you won't be bummed if you lose them.

3. CASH. Since most parties on New Years Eve are a fixed cover price with open bar, you'll need some cash to tip your bartenders, and pay for coat check. In the event that you're not at a bar/club that had a cover, it's 500 million times easier to pay for drinks without having to worry about a tab (or something else catching your name and putting their drinks on your tab!)

COOL SHIT
Soundproof That Annoying Friend

Unattractive object right? Hey, looks aren't everything. You'll be thrilled to have this when the awkward friend of the group wants to start karaoking at the adult New Year's party.

If karaoke is an every weekend kind of hobby for them than you might have an issue. Needless to say, don't think your friend will notice what kind of microphone it is if the drinks are flowing.

Just hand them this soundproof microphone and even the most tone deaf entertaining-ish person will bring in the new year with the perfect tune.
