Rooftops are one of the top holiday party destinations because of their striking views and possibility of a Santa meet-and-greet. Party while keeping an eye on the sky with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a VIP ticket to the Eat, Drink, Shop & Be Merry holiday brunch party from iAdventure.com on Sunday, December 18, from noon to 4 p.m. (a $60 value).
VIP attendees will celebrate the season in the Hudson Terrace's rooftop lounge with an open bar and vendors supplying seasonal wares. Temperature-regulated mahogany flooring keep winter's chill at bay as DJs spark nostalgic fires inside attendees by spinning holiday songs from a fully equipped booth. Bartenders will shake up holiday-themed cocktails to nurse while perusing potential gifts such as jewelry, accessories, and clothing at vendor stands lining the party’s edges. Brunch bites will be available for sale to compliment the selection of drinks as guests dodge or steer toward sprigs of mistletoe hanging overhead.
Though open topped, glass walls shield the entire area from unpleasant winds while still providing spectacular views of the city's skyline. Celebrity revelers such as Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, and Derek Jeter have selected the venue for exclusive parties and kindergarten graduations.
iAdventure sends urbanites on a variety of excursions in and around the Big Apple, inspiring them to branch out and try new experiences in the do, see, eat, and drink categories. The organizers draw from a variety of interests and a large pool of connections, allowing them to orchestrate outings ranging from walking tours of millionaires' homes to mixology boot camps. Many of iAdventure's events focus on helping out charitable causes or celebrating lesser-known holidays, such as Bastille Day.
